This precious daughter of ours has a special day coming up and we wanted to invite you to join us to celebrate if you are able!
On Sunday March 27th we will be dedicating Karlena at our church service. For those of you who are new to our family, this is a time where as parents and family we stand before God and the church and make a public commitment that we will bring her to church, teach her the truth of the Bible and lead her on a path where she can one day make a personal choice to ask Jesus to be her Savior. In addition the church then dedicates that they too will be active participants in the raising of our daughter in the church.
These services are always very meaningful for us and we have since watched Isaac make the choice to be baptized and make his public profession of faith and we are now talking to Gabriel about it as well. Gabriel loves Jesus and can tell you why he loves Him but is trying to understand the real meaning of baptism in the way that only a 7 yr old can.
But this dedication is the first "step" if you will in that journey for each of our children. We know that Karlena is God's daughter first and He has entrusted Dominic and I with her care here on earth. As sinners and people with many faults we know that we can't do it alone!! And by standing in faith with a community of believers we commit to keep seeking out God's will for ourselves and our family, looking to His Word as our guide and dedicating to keep God in the center of our family.
So if you are able we would love to have you come and celebrate not only Karlena's life but the eternal life that is found through Christ when we trust in Him. If you need directions to our church in Parker leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will get those to you!
