Psalm 127:3-4 says:
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth.
As we heard from Dr. Caldwell earlier this year, children are a blessing and a treasure from God. In fact, the Psalmist says this several different ways in this passage by calling them “a gift,” “fruit,” “a reward,” and “arrows.” He goes on to say that those who invest in them will not be put to shame, and the point is that we should thank the Lord for the children that He has given us. It is an honour and a privilege to raise them up and to help the learn how to love and honour Him.
With that in mind, we would like to hold our first ever Baby Dedication Service at GFC to honour the new lives that the Lord has given us. We want to pray for those who have become new parents and ask the Lord to bless them as they seek to invest in the lives of their children. We also want to use this time to remind them that our church stands with them in the parenting process as an encouragement and a help in the raising of their kids.
The Service will be held as part of the service on Sunday morning, August 12. As this is the first time that we have held a service like this, we don’t want anyone to miss out. If you have been attending GFC and have a little one you would like to have dedicated in this way, please contact Jordan Henderson this week: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please pray for these dear little ones and their parents as they prepare for this big day. Pray that the service will be a joy for them and a blessing to all who come. And pray that it will please our Heavenly Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
