DEDICATING YOUR CHILD
As Christian parents, we take seriously our responsibility to raise any children God
entrusts to us in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. It is our desire to publicly
declare that commitment, as a testimony of our complete dependence on the
Wisdom found in God's Word, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for success in
our role as the parents and spiritual guardians of our children.
We also pray that our public commitment to godly parenting will remind other
parents of their great privilege and responsibility before God. We understand that
no supernatural grace or benefit is imparted to our child through this dedication
service, but rather we are pledging ourselves, as Christian parents, to exert every
possible godly influence on this child; to demonstrate to him/her, by our godly
example, the power and truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to endeavor to lead him/
her to a saving faith in the Savior; and to faithfully teach our child the precious truths
contained in the Word of God.
We request the blessing and support of our Church Family to help us to “train up our
child in the way he should go.” (Prov.22:6)
Get in shape with the Parkside Runners/Walkers! Join them
every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Mt. Pisgah for some exercise and

information, contact Tony Van Houten, Rex DeBoer, or
The church office.
