Family Dedication

Family Dedication is a time when parents publicly express their commitment to raise their child 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 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 supporting your family in prayer and partnering with you to teach your children basic truths from God’s Word to encourage an authentic faith in their lives.

What are the requirements to participate in Family Dedication?

  • At least one parent must be a member of Istrouma in good standing (see descriptions below)

    • A married couple (a man & a woman) committed to Christ

    • A single parent committed to Christ and not living with someone. We may ask unmarried parents living together to take steps to acknowledge and surrender to God’s plan for their relationship before participating in Family Dedication.
