2009 In Review

Last year at this time, I published the following list of ministries that we wanted to begin working on here in 2009. Good news! We have made significant progress on all the ones that are in bold print, and at least a measure of progress on the three in italics.

• Forgiveness Liturgies
• Prayer/Fasting Teams
• “Unplug and Reconnect” ecumenical family week
• Stephen Ministry (listening/counseling)
• No One Dies Alone Ministry

• Prison Ministry
• New St. Anastasia Prayer Booklet

• Ministry to New Parents
• Welcoming Ministry
• Orphan Ministry
• Revitalizing the Resurrection Home Mission (Appalachia)
• Help for Caregivers
• Employment Resources

I re-present all these ideas to you now as you make your New Year’s resolutions because I’m still collecting names. If you are interested in learning more about any of these ideas, or if you want to make a leap of faith and just flat-out sign up to help with a specific one, please give me a call or zap me an email. The Christian Service Commission will keep you on our treasured resource list. Please, keep this list in the place where you pray. Let me know which idea cries out to you. If the loudest idea is not yet written here, well, to God be the glory – let me know what He says! Thank you.
