It is our hope that Granite United Church can partner with you from the very beginning to build a Christian Home as you raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
The vision of Granite United Church is to make fully devoted followers of Christ! One way that we accomplish that vision is by partnering with parents to help raise their children to love and honor God, and to one day give their lives to HIM!
The act of Child Dedications is a church tradition, not a biblical mandate. But the scriptures are 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
.At Granite United Church, 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, to build a Christian home, to model the Christian life and to shepherd their children to know and love Jesus.
