Picture Butte: Child Dedication Ceremony Held at PBMC

by Desiree Krahn

PICTURE BUTTE, Alta.—Lately, it seems our congregation, Picture Butte Mennonite Church, is overflowing with brand new babies! It seemed only fitting to hold a child dedication ceremony on Oct. 2, 2016.

Lay minister Ben Dyck, together with his wife Maria, prayed for each child and their parents. His prayer was that the children would grow up to have a personal relationship with the Lord, and that their parents would know how to lead them in a Christ honouring way.
