Rooted: A Parent Dedication
Sunday, October 21st 1:30pm (Parkside Theater)
Sun, Oct 21st 1:30pm (Parkside Theater)
At Southland we believe that no one has more influence over a child’s faith than the parents/guardians who raise them. That’s why we want to do everything we can as a church to support you in this journey. We are here to champion you, resource you, and cheer you on as you raise your kids to follow Jesus!
That’s why at Southland we provide a Parent Dedication service, to invite you, as the parent or guardian, to commit to raising your children to know Christ and to live according to His Word. It’s also a chance for the church to affirm our commitment to love and support you as you lead your children.
We do not believe Parent Dedication has any bearing on a child’s salvation, but it is an opportunity for you to make Jesus the number one priority in your family’s life.
Parents/guardians who wish to have their children dedicated at Southland will be asked to complete an Application for Participation, Parent Dedication Service. Application does not guarantee participation but is the first step in the process.
Once you have completed your application, you will be contacted within a week with more information about your next step.
To have your child dedicated at Southland:
We ask parents/guardians to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We ask parents/guardians to be sure their beliefs line up with Southland Christian Church’s what we believe including the biblical view of sexuality.
We ask parents/guardians to agree to complete all parent dedication homework before the Parent Dedication service.
We ask parents/guardians to be regular attenders of Southland’s Sunday services.
We ask parents/guardians who are living together and who are not married to take steps to acknowledge and surrender to God’s plan for their relationship before participating in a parent dedication service.
You do not have to be a church Partner (the term we use for church membership) to participate in a Parent Dedication service at Southland Christian Church, but we do encourage parents/guardians to strongly consider partnership. Why? In dedicating your child to God, you are stating that you are willing to partner with God and the church to raise your child in cooperation with God’s intentions. To partner with any church, a parent/guardian would be wise to decide if he or she agrees with its beliefs and vision, so they can be all-in in their partnership with the church. When you choose to become a Partner at Southland, you are stating that you agree with Southland’s beliefs and values, and that you want Southland to be your home church.
