Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
Psalms 127:3 (NLT)
We firmly believe that children are a gift from God. They are a gift in which we have been entrusted with the responsibility to prepare them for their God ordained destiny. We humbly understand that we are unable to do this without the help of a loving Heavenly Father. Therefore, we at CLC perform Baby Dedications in which parents and families are able to present their children to the Lord. We see this Biblical example in I Samuel 1:24 when Hannah dedicated her son Samuel to the Lord.
In this meaningful ceremony, parents, along with their family and friends, make a commitment before the Lord to submit their child or children to God’s will and to raise them according to His Word and ways. We also as a congregation at this time pledge our commitment to support and encourage these children and families as they consecrate their lives to the Lord.
Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
