“Christ Through Us”
For more information email Kelsey Henderson.
Monte Vista Chapel values children as equal participants in the body of Christ. We believe that all children are created in God’s own image and are a gift from Him (Gen. 1:26; Psalm 127: 3-5). It is our desire to partner with parents / legal guardians in raising their children in such a way that puts Christ’s love on display so that their children may have the opportunity to experience God’s goodness and truth. We also recognize that child dedications do not grant a child salvation —God’s love and grace allow each individual to make the decision to follow Christ for themselves (John 3:16; Acts 4:11-12; Romans 10:9-13). Therefore, a Child Dedication is simply a public declaration of a parent’s / Guardian’s desire and devotion to pursue the following as they raise their children to do the same:
- Grow in a love and trust in God above all else
- Follow the model and teachings of Jesus
- Gracefully obey and cooperate with the Holy Spirit
- Participate in the kingdom of God
In addition to the parent(s) / legal guardian(s) making a declaration, the Monte Vista Chapel Family will affirm the parents in their desire and also commit to partner alongside the family.
