A service of dedication was held on Sabbath, February 18, 2017 for Samuel Luke Van Horn. His loving parents (Christopher and Veronica Van Horn) and older siblings (Josiah, Ava, Emma, and Lilly) shared the joy and responsibility of raising Samuel with the rest of their extended and church family.
During the dedication service, Veronica’s father (Randy Borman) shared a reading called “We Wish You” and Pastor Robert (also a proud grandfather) shared thoughts from scriptures read earlier in the service by Mark Pest — Psalm 139:13-16, Mark 10:13-16, and Matthew 18:2-6.
Children are a blessing from God! Family members and church members joined together in a responsive reading pledging their support and commitment to share in guiding, teaching, encouraging, and being an example for Samuel to choose God’s way and honor Him as he grows up.
