It was short, just a small speech from the Children's minister and a prayer from the pastor, but it was just more the symbolic act of presenting my child before the church and saying that I want him to belong to the Lord that was meaningful for me.
They also gave him a children's Bible and a laminated certificate that reads:
Elias John Tapp
I Am Blessed
My mom and dad have dedicated me to God and will help me to live for Him. They have also dedicated themselves to be faithful to God, to one another, and to me for the rest of their lives.
