This liturgy comes from the Sunday morning service on October 12, 2014 at Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, Kentucky.
Call To Worship:
Today is a baby dedication Sunday, where we’ll give thanks for new life and make new commitments together as family. From the beginning of time, God committed to be our Father and dedicated His Son’s life to ensure that promise. Hear the word of the Lord;
“Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children…” - Deuteronomy 6:4-6
Let’s sing out remembering that the Lord loved us first so that we could love Him with our whole being.

Passing of the Peace:
Christ has made peace for us, and now we fit in God’s family. Let’s greet one another with the peace of Christ.

…Just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. - Colossians 2:6-7
