Welcome Letter from David Eanes

Parents of Elementary (and Intermediate) Children,

Welcome to our new parent ministry site!  This website is an answer to a prayer I’ve prayed for many years.  In my ministry role, I facilitate events and programming for children and their families inside the walls of the church, in the community, and beyond.  But, I’ve always felt the best thing a Children’s and Family Ministry can do is equip those who have the primary responsibility of spiritually nurturing children—their parents!  After all, God has charged parents with this important responsibility, and children will spend far more time at home that at any set of church activities.  This website will help your Children’s and Family Ministry equip you in a fun, organized, up-to-date, and user-friendly way.  I believe you will find this website to be a very beneficial tool to help you fulfill your role as your child’s primary spiritual nurturer.  It is not meant to stress you out and merely be something else you “have to do” in an already busy schedule.  The parenting classes, highlighted resources, and especially the Rites Of Passage Experiences (ROPE) are designed for you to access easily and complete at your own pace, any time within the year that corresponds to your child’s current school grade.  Go ahead and look around!  Come back and keep coming back!  If you have any questions about the site, or if I can help you and your family in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Your partner in ministry,

David Eanes
Minister of Children and Families
Meadow Brook Baptist Church
