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.
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. 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 are having a Baby Dedication Service at GFC to honour the new lives that the Lord has given us. We want to pray for those who have little ones 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 on Sunday morning, January 20. It will not take up the entire morning, just a part of it. If you have been attending GFC and have a little one you would like to have dedicated in this way, please contact Jordan Henderson before January 13: 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.
