  5. 5. DEDICATING YOUR CHILD OUR COMMITMENT TOYS FOR TOTS AND FOR OUR CHURCH FAMILY! This year we are again participating in the Toys For Tots Drive as well as our own drive to help some of our church family. Gifts for teens and babies are very much in demand. If you would like to donate, please place your unwrapped toys in the Toys For Tots box located near the church office. As Christian parents, we take seriously our responsibility to raise any children God entrusts to us in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. It is our desire to publicly declare that commitment, as a testimony of our complete dependence on the Wisdom found in God's Word, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for success in our role as the parents and spiritual guardians of our children. We also pray that our public commitment to godly parenting will remind other parents of their great privilege and responsibility before God. We understand that no supernatural grace or benefit is imparted to our child through this dedication service, but rather we are pledging ourselves, as Christian parents, to exert every possible godly influence on this child; to demonstrate to him, our godly example, the power and truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to endeavor to lead him/her to a saving faith in the Savior; and to faithfully teach our child the precious truths contained in the Word of God. We request the blessing and support of our Church Family to help us to “train up our child in the way he should go.” (Prov.22:6) November 24, 2013 Hunter Allen Bean Son of Ray and Janay Bean Born 5/28/13 Jack Edward Hodgson Son of Brian and Hannah Hodgson Born 6/20/13 PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR SECRET HEART SISTER THIS MONTH!
