As a child growing up in the church, I witnessed many dedication ceremonies where parents 'promised' their children to God, (even though they already are His). They promised to raise their kids according to the Word and God's will. As an adult with children of my own, I have not seen this done in years. I've asked, but no one seems to know the answer. My oldest who is 9 recieved the Holy Ghost and was baptized a few months ago during a wonderful movement in our Church's youth. I myself have vowed to raise my children for Him, but it doesn't seem to be recognized in the church anymore. Is it not done anymore???
