What is legacy baby dedication…

Legacy is a celebration service designed to help you mark the moment where you consecrate and dedicate your child and yourselves to the purposes God has established for your family! It’s a special time to focus on the calling God has entrusted you with—raising your children. It is not baptism or salvation, but it is an opportunity to intentionally cast vision for your parenting and to proclaim that your child belongs to God. We are excited to partner with you and help mark this moment for your family!

 

 

Why should i dedicate my baby…

In Deuteronomy 6, God is speaking through Moses to the people of Israel—he is speaking directly to the fathers, and this is what is said:

“Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the judgments which the LORD your God has commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you are going over to possess it, so that you and your son and your grandson might fear the LORD your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you… Deuteronomy 6:1-2

It is interesting… you are commanded to keep God’s commandments so that your children and your grandchildren will stand in awe of God. We say it like this: The purpose of your family is for your children’s children to know God as God! The way this is established is not through more Sunday School programs or religious rituals, but simply through the way you live your life. Keep reading:

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons 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 up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7

You are commanded to teach your children in the ordinary moments of your life. The way we have structured PC3 is simply to partner with you as you take responsibility for the spiritual development of your children. Every thing we do is designed to work with you—to come alongside of your family and help your children walk with God!

Legacy provides a way to mark this important moment in the life of your family. Parents and their little ones are joined by family and friends as a public commitment is made to raise their children to know Christ and stand in awe of God. Before the actual Legacy service, we will provide you with some basic tools and resources that will help you focus on what matters most to your family. As a church, we are committed to partnering with you along the way.
