Sunday morning was a joyful time for our church family as we celebrated the families of seven babies born this year, and their parents desire to raise them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4) Parent-child dedications at Hickman Community Church are part of our desire to make much of the family unit instituted by God. They are a public pledge by parents to do all they can, by God’s grace and wisdom, to raise their child to respect and honor God who created and gifted them to the family unit (Ps.127:3).
“Do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4”
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Psalm 127:3″
