Family Dedication

What is Family Dedication?

Family Dedication is a time when parents publicly express their commitment to raise their children in a home that honors Christ. Dedication isn’t about one day, but rather a choice to dedicate your lives, as parents, to sharing and modeling the truth of the Bible and the love of Christ. It’s about making a commitment to raise your children in an environment that leads their hearts to the Lord. As a church, Istrouma commits to support your family in prayer and partner with you to teach your children basic truths from God’s Word to encourage an authentic faith in their lives.
