Would you be willing to give our Bright Beginnings kids one hour of your time this summer?
Every summer we give our regular Bright Beginnings volunteers the summer off so that they can prayerfully consider their commitment for the upcoming school year.
This is huge on a number of levels; it helps provide consistency because our volunteers have a defined starting and ending time to their commitment (they don’t feel like they have to serve until Jesus returns or until they muster up the courage to tell me they are done, or just stop showing up, all of which happen without a defined ending time), it encourages our volunteers to pray about their ministry at JaxNaz which means they are serving in Bright Beginnings because they feel called to Bright Beginnings and desire to be there (which makes Bright Beginnings so much more than just an hour of babysitting), it helps our volunteers feel supported and appreciated, it gives them a break (because everyone needs a break from time to time, even if you are serving within your passion area), and it gives members of our church body and parents an opportunity to experience Bright Beginnings.
Who wouldn’t want to help make all that good stuff possible?
It takes around 400 volunteers to cover Bright Beginnings for the summer. Summer Serve starts this Sunday and we currently need about 100 more volunteers.
If you are one of the 300 people who have already signed up to help this summer, THANK YOU! If not, would you consider giving us one hour of your time to help make Summer Serve possible?
We make it really easy for you; you can pick your date, your service (9:30 am or 11:15 am) and the age of children you would like to serve. If you don’t know your summer schedule yet, that’s fine too. We’ll work with you over the summer to find a date that works for you!
This is a great opportunity for families to serve together, for parents of children in Bright Beginnings to not only experience their child’s class but to say “thank you” to their child’s teacher, and for people who are considering serving in Bright Beginnings on a regular basis to “give it a try.”
I promise I will not keep anyone’s name and number to call when we are short on help. Once you have served you are done. No strings attached!
So please consider helping us out.
This summer is especially important because I will be on maternity leave during July and August and want to make sure the volunteers who are graciously stepping up to keep Bright Beginnings running in my absence have plenty of help each week.
So as the kids said, “What are you waiting for?!”
If you are willing to give us one hour this summer, give me a call (517-782-7084 ext. 301) or shoot me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll get you set up.
Thanks so much and we’ll see you this summer!
