Child Dedication at Refuge

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

-Proverbs 22:6 ESV

What does it mean to dedicate your child at Refuge?

Dedicating your child to the Lord at Refuge means three things:

  1. Celebrating the new life in your family!

  2. Welcoming your child into the church family.

  3. Making an agreement with God and your church family to raise your child in a way that honors God and gives them the opportunity for a life-long relationship with Jesus.

We believe God has a good and perfect plan for every life. Faithful parenting looks like doing our part to raise our children to know God, staying engaged with a loving church community and entrusting our children’s future to Him.

At what age should I dedicate my child?

We invite you to dedicate your children from infancy up to 5 years old. Our heart behind child dedication is that you would allow us to join you in making a commitment as early as possible, acknowledging the crucial stages of nurturing and development that happen early in life.
