Dedication Day!

Our church doesn't do infant baptism's. Instead, we have a baby dedication where the parents vow to raise their child(ren) in a Christian home and church allowing them to make the decision to follow God once they understand what that means. At our church, it happens to be done quarterly and is a short program following the regular church service. Today was the first one since Drake was born and the day we dedicated him.

They also do something else that I think is pretty cool. We have a letter that tells Drake about his dedication day, and we are supposed to give it to him when he chooses to be baptized! Hopefully it is something that we won't forget about when the times comes. :-)

We were so blessed to have my parents, my sister and her family, Jason's sister and her son, Jason's aunt, and a few friends with us. Afterwards, we grilled out lunch at our house and had cake!
All the families with the children they dedicated!

Aww! So sweet! And I know what a special day it must have been for you all:) We also do not do infant baptisms, but like you do baby/children Dedications. So looking forward to dedicating our own precious little miracle baby girl back to the God.."who gave her to us"! Although I have in my heart already and she's not even born yet:)

Take care, so good to see you all are doing well.
