Milestone 1: Parent/Child Dedication Sample Letter

 Dear (Child's name), 

     This is a very special day for you! We are so proud of you and the decision you made to accept Jesus as your personal Savior. Of all the decisions and commitments you will make in your life, this one is the most important. 

     On (DATE of DEDICATION), we made a decision that we hope helped bring you this important milestone. We took you to a special service at church and made promises God that we would provide you physically and emotionally and guide you socially. We promised to be your primary spiritual teachers and to raise you in a Christian home. We acknowledged on that day our desire to see you grow in your knowledge and understanding of who God is and all that He has done for you. We began praying for that day when you come to accept Christ as Savior. Today that prayer was answered. Now it is important that you read your Bible each day. It is the guide book to help you know how to live and make good decisions. Pray often. Ask God to help  you be kind and loving toward us (your family), friends and others. Ask God to help you tell others about Him. If we forget, remind us that you need to be in church each week. 

     We are so proud of you and celebrate this special time with you. We will continue to pray for you in the days ahead. We love you so much and are glad that you are part our family and God's family!!

                                                       Love,  Mom & Dad
