Dedicating Our Children

 We don't believe in baptism for babies since that is supposed to be a sign of the decision that a Christian has made to die to their old self and live as a new creation in Christ.  We do, however, believe in dedicating our children to the Lord.  What this means is that we are making a promise to God to raise our children in the knowledge of Him.  We are promising to do our best to be a Godly example to them.  And our church family is promising to help us in that task.  We are saying that our children belong to Him and we are promising to be faithful stewards of them since He has given us that great privilege and responsibility.

On May 13th of this year, we dedicated all our kids at our church.  I thought it was really neat that they allowed us to do that on Mother's Day.  Danya and Gloria are the only ones who had been dedicated when they were born.  We decided to go ahead and dedicate all the kids together this time.  We were so glad that Daniel's parents and Molly were able to be there with us.
