Currently, Brighton First’s Sunday School classes are held in four different areas of our main building. Our nursery is on the upper level and classrooms are scattered throughout the lower level. Many parents must travel to two or three places in the church to locate their children after worship.
Since equipping our children and youth to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ is a priority for Brighton First, our Administrative Board has determined that we would move all of our Sunday morning children’s ministries to one location. The Children’s Ministries Team and the Board of Trustees have developed a plan for a consolidated children’s mini
stry area in the lower level that is inviting, dynamic, and secure.
It is our goal that by September 2017 we will offer a dedicated space for our children which allows parents to SAFELY check children in and out at one location. It will allow children to meet together in the central common area for worship and joint lessons. This will encourage co-operative learning, peer mentoring, and opportunities for fellowship among children of different ages. In addition, Sunday School teachers will be able to team teach with other teachers and classes.
The renovation includes fresh paint in welcoming and fun colors, new flooring, age-appropriate furnishings, and a nursery bathroom. Brighton First’s Music Ministries will move to the current nursery on the upper level, and The Prayers and Squares Quilt Ministry will continue in its current location.
We currently estimate that we will need an additional $15,000 to complete the first phase of this renovation. Please prayerfully consider contributing to this exciting project. Giving envelopes are available.
