Infant Dedication

Infant DedicationThe birth of a child is an incredible blessing. We love to celebrate with new parents when their baby is born. One of the ways we do this is through Infant Dedication.

When a baby is dedicated, the parents present the child to the church. The minister will ask the parents to repeat a list of promises, that they will bring the child up in the knowledge of God. The parents may also include God-parents in this, but it is not compulsory. The minister will then ask the church to stand and promise to help the parents to raise the child in the knowledge of God. After this, the minister will take the child in his or her arms and pray for the child and the family.

If you would like to have your baby dedicated, please contact the pastors by emailing office@sellyelim.org.
