A child is a God-given trust (Psalm 127:3); and Family Dedication is a ceremony that signifies your commitment to uphold that trust. It is an event that symbolizes your pledge to raise your child in a Christian home and church where he or she can come to know, love, and serve Jesus. It also signifies a commitment by the people of Blainsport Mennonite Church to provide a loving, biblical community that supports and prays for your family.
Family dedication at Blainsport is not the same as infant baptism. We believe that baptism is a public statement of faith that can be made only by someone who has personally believed in Christ. Infants cannot make a personal decision to believe in Jesus.
If you call Blainsport Mennonite Church your church home and desire God’s direction for your family, you are invited to present your child in Christian dedication to the Lord. While parents often dedicate their children while they are young, older children may also be dedicated.
The next Family dedication will be in 2019 during our morning worship gathering.
