Child Dedication

At Common Ground we love our child dedication services. This is a time for a parent or parents to delicate their child to the Lord Jesus Christ. This is an opportunity for mothers and fathers to commit to raise their child in a way that glorifies God and receive the commitment that the church will partner in this adventure. 

God tells His people in Deuteronomy 6:4-7 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”

Parents are ultimately responsible to raise their children in a godly way and to teach them about the God revealed in scripture and a life surrendered to Jesus as Lord. Dedicating a child is an opportunity for the parent to tell the rest of the church that they own this responsibility. The beautiful part of Gods design is that we parents are not alone. The church is called the body of Christ and is a family. Common Ground is committed to coming along side parents to teach them, advise them, and help them as they fulfill their role. We desire to raise a generation of children who will go into the world and make a difference for the kingdom of God. 

If you are interested in dedicating your child please contact Shari Peterman.
