Why do we dedicate children at BBC? Dedications at BBC are times specially set aside for us as a church family to celebrate children as gifts from God (Psalm 137: 3) and for the parents, family and community to commit to raising the child in the ways of God in the hope that when they are older they will choose to walk with God themselves (Proverbs 22:6). [It is not the same as baptizing a child, because we believe that baptism symbolizes one’s own decision to follow Christ.]
To equip parents in discipling their children we will be running a dedication class ahead of the next Dedication services. Attending this class is required before being able to participate in a Dedication service. The next class is happening on Thursday 24 May 2018, from 19h00-21h00.
