Parent-Child Dedication

Parent-Child Dedication of Jeremiah Aiden Holt

In the presence of God and the Fellowship of Montgomery Heights (The Heights)
Baptist Church on October 30, 2022

Chelsie Sims, you have brought Jeremiah Aiden Holt into this place of worship
for God’s anointment and the dedication of yourself to raise Jeremiah in a
fellowship of Christians and teach him the Christian way of life.
The dedication of a child has a scriptural precedent, Mary and Joseph brought
Jesus to the Temple, where the prophet Simeon, took him into his arms and
offered a blessing as it was the custom of the day. Mary and Joseph were also
dedicating themselves to the sacred responsibility of parenthood.
This is a time of thanksgiving to God for the joy and hope that comes into your
life by the presence of Jeremiah in your life. It is a recognition of God as the
Giver of Life an affirmation that all children are held in God’s care. It is also a
recommitment of your life to God`.
It is the love found in the home that will help determine Jeremiah’s future
understanding of God’s love as he observes how you practice your faith and
engage in service to God. You should keep the doors of your own life open to
God’s leadership.
Prayer
To the witnesses of this dedication in the Church family:
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we have a Christian responsibility to come along
side this family to encourage and assist them in raising Jeremiah. Our WOW
workers, will take care, love and instruct in the days and years ahead. As grows
some will teach Jeremiah, and all of us will encourage Jeremiah to follow Jesus.
Prayer
Closing Scriptural Blessing:
The Lord bless you and keep you: the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and
be gracious to you: The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you
peace. Numbers 6:24-26
