A child dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. A public commitment of your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child with God as the focal point in their lives. This basically means that a child dedication is more for the parent(s) than it is for the child. It's you wanting to raise your child on the path of God's love, and your family and friends supporting you in that declaration.
Normally, child dedications are for children 0-7 years old. For children older than that, you may want to begin to consider baptism in water as a next step. For any additional information, please e-mail email@example.com
