PARENT CHILD DEDICATION
Sunday, May 7th | 9:30 AM | Rock Spring Campus
Peavine Baptist Church believes children are a gift from God, and we are very excited that you are wanting to be a part of our parent child dedication.
We will have Parent Child Dedication Service on Sunday, May 7th at 11:00am at the Rock Spring Campus. We will have a breakfast for you and your family at 9:30am. Attendance to the breakfast is required to participate in the 11:00am dedication service.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS AND WATCH THE VIDEO FROM PASTOR JOEL BEFORE REGISTERING.
What is Parent Child Dedication?
Parent Child Dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publicly your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in partnership with the church, so your child will develop a desire to love and serve God.
Is Parent Child Dedication the same thing as a baptism?
Parent Child Dedication is not a baptism. We believe that baptism by immersion comes after a profession of faith has been made. The Biblical order is profession of faith and then baptism (Mark 1:1-11).
Do I need to be a member of Peavine to participate in the Parent Child Dedication?
Parent Child Dedication is reserved for members or regular attenders of Peavine.
Can my older children be dedicated?
Dedication is normally for babies – 5-year-olds. Exceptions are made on an individual basis.
Can my adopted children be dedicated?
Yes, once your adoption is legally finalized then you can dedicate that child.
Can my foster child be dedicated?
Yes, you must have written consent from your case worker to dedicate a foster child.
Who can participate in the Parent Child Dedication Ceremony?
The married mother and father of the child can participate.
A single parent can participate as well.
If a mother and father are living together but not married, can they participate in the Parent Child Dedication together?
Regrettably no, as that goes against God’s design for marriage (1 Corinthians 7). Any circumstance that falls out of God’s design for the family would prohibit someone from participating in the Parent Child Dedication.
Can grandparents who are raising a grandchild participate in the Parent Child Dedication?
Yes, if the grandparents have legal custody of their grandchild.
When and where is the next Parent Child Dedication?
Parent Child Dedication will be May 7th and will begin at 9:30 in the Crossing with breakfast for you and your immediate family. During the breakfast, participants will receive special gifts and specific instructions on the 11:00 ceremony that you will need so attendance is required at the breakfast for you to participate in the dedication portion in our 11:00 service. Pastor Joel and Sherry will also have a prayer of dedication for your family. We encourage you to invite your friends and extended family to come to the 11:00 worship service to witness the dedication.
