Elijah James you are an answer to prayer!
Today we dedicated you to the Lord. We believe we cannot make the decision for you to accept Jesus as Lord of your life. You will have the opportunity as you grow older to make that decision for yourself. We promise to raise you to know who God is, that God loves you and cares for you, and has known you since before you were born. We will pray for you. We will seek grace and wisdom to carry out these responsibilities. We promise to surround you with a community of people who love you and can help guide you.
During the church service today, Pastor Bill read from Psalm 127 and Deuteronomy 6. We were reminded that we need to love God first and from that love we will teach you about God. Our community joined us in making a commitment to raise you to know God.
Then, we had a big BBQ at home to celebrate the day! A great showing of your community came to celebrate! Papa grilled up burgers and hot dogs and we enjoyed delicious cake! It was a very special day for a very special boy!
Here are some photos from your special day!
