Child Dedications

Here at 2 Pillars Church, we perform child dedications as a church tradition, not a biblical mandate (it is therefore optional).

While Scripture does not require parents to dedicate their children, it is very clear in Deuteronomy 6:4-7 and Ephesians 6:1-4 that it is the responsibility of the parents, as stewards of God, to shepherd their children to know, honor, love, and obey God.

We keep the church tradition of child dedications as a way to allow parents an opportunity to publicly covenant with God, their children, and their church that they are dedicated as parents to follow Jesus, model the Christian life, and shepherd their children to know and love Jesus.

If having your child dedicated is something you would like to pursue (and we pray it is!) please click the button to the right and fill out a brief form to begin the process. Once you complete and submit the form, we will follow-up with you with additional information.
