This blog is designed for you.
Starting small is for the parents of children in the Bright Beginnings children’s ministry (birth-kindergarten) at Jax Naz Church in Jackson, Michigan.
Our purpose is to encourage, inspire, equip and empower you to help your children grow with God–sounds a lot like our mission in Bright Beginnings, doesn’t it?
“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:7
Starting small has been in the works for a while now, and we are excited to finally share it with you! Launch Day has finally come! God gave us the vision to build this site with the aim of providing direction, support and community for our Bright Beginnings parents.
We hope you love it and get involved!
At church we try to optimize every minute we have with your child, but we only have them for a few hours each week. The truth is, God has given you the task of shaping your child’s heart, developing their concept of Him and helping them understand their place in His world.
That’s quite a responsibility! Many of us wonder “Where do I start?” We pray this blog helps you answer that question as we provide ways for you to take what your child is learning at church and incorporate those truths into your everyday family life.
Each week, look for posts called: take-it-home.
There are so many things competing for your time and attention, promising to help you be a better parent. We don’t want to be just one more blog on your favorites list tempting you to spend more time disengaged from your family.
Every aspect of starting small has been carefully thought out, discussed through, and prayed over; even the name was a prayerful decision that we feel captures the heart of it all.
