At Valley, child dedications are a joint expression of a parent’s desire to raise godly children. As a church we are committed to empower parents in that calling and help families raise God-honoring kids. We count it an honor to be entrusted with that incredible privilege.
In 1 Samuel 1:27-28, a godly woman named Hannah prayed for years for God to give her a child. He answered her prayers and she gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel. When Samuel was born, Hannah prayed these words: “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
Child dedications are a time for parents, like Hannah, to commit themselves to raising their child God’s way. It’s a powerful time for parents to embrace the responsibility they’ve been given by God and to catch a vision of the impact they can make in their child’s life. We make these events special by encouraging the whole family to get involved. It’s an event families will always remember.
We invite families with children ages 0 – 5 years to participate in the dedication. Child dedications are scheduled periodically throughout the year.
