Baby Dedication Invitation to LWF Parents

Dear LWF parents,

On Sunday, February 18th during worship service, the pastors of Living Water Fellowship have the privilege of participating in the Baby Dedication of a number of our LWF families. The pastors would like to extend this opportunity to other families of Living Water Fellowship who would also like to make a commitment before the Lord and the local body of Christ to dedicate their child to God's will and to raise that child according to God's Word and God's ways.

Christian parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord to do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way, prayerfully, until he or she can make a decision on his or her own to follow Christ. Parents who make this vow of commitment are instructed to raise the child in the ways of God, and not according to their own ways. Some of the responsibilities include teaching and training the child in God's Word, demonstrating an example of godliness, disciplining according to God's ways, and praying earnestly for the child.

LWF parents who would like to participate in the Baby Dedication ceremony, PLEASE CONTACT one of the pastors as soon as possible, so we can be sure to include your family in the Baby Dedication during the worship service on Sunday, May 18th. Thank you!

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him.... So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD...." –1 Samuel 1:27 (NIV) & 1 Samuel 1:28a (NAS)
