Child Dedication at Abundant Life

“…children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.”—Psalm 127:3

Whether they are newborns or newly graduated, all children can be dedicated to God.

What Is Child Dedication?

Child Dedication is a time where we can celebrate parents making a commitment to raise their children in a God-honoring way.

The public dedication is to…

Stand before God and the church and make a commitment to live with God’s Word in your heart

Accept responsibility as the primary faith trainer
of your children

Acknowledge your children belong to God first and are given to you as a gift to steward, grow and develop

Commit to praying continually for your children to come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior

Commit to loving your children unconditionally as Jesus does

What Child Dedication Is Not?

Child dedication is not baptism, nor does it impart salvation. Salvation happens when a child is old enough to make a decision on his or her own and the child chooses to receive Christ. From there, the child makes a decision to publicly declare their decision to follow Christ through baptism.


What to Expect

Four times a year, Abundant Life hosts a Child Dedication celebration at our campuses.
We invite the parents of the child to be dedicated on stage, where they are announced one by one.
The Pastor then leads the church in prayer over the families.

The Lee’s Summit Campus hosts Child Dedication during all 3 services on assigned Sundays.

The Blue Springs and Independence Campus host the 11:20 AM service only on assigned Sundays.

The Crossroads Campus hosts Child Dedication during the 11:20 AM service on assigned Sundays.
