Child Dedication is a misnomer, I think

This Sunday is Kevin’s Child Dedication at our church. Our church performs dedications instead of baptisms for children. Everytime I say "we’re dedicating Kevin" it sounds wrong to me. Aren’t we instead dedicating ourselves to bring up Kevin with Christian values and understanding? It should be, "Parents’ Dedication To Their Children." I suppose that doesn’t really roll off the tongue quite the same.
