Are You Certain Your Children's Ministry Communicates the Message You Think It Does?

http://www.aboutthechildrensdepartment.com/2017/06/are-you-certain-your-childrens-ministry.htmlWhen you are a Children's Ministry director or pastor, you practically "live and breathe" children's ministry. It is your focus, your passion. It is what you think about. While you may have designed a children's ministry which is very effective, because you are so "close" to your ministry,…See More

Do Not Be Afraid!

http://www.aboutthechildrensdepartment.com/2017/06/do-not-be-afraid.htmlWhat are you afraid of? Well, if you are like me the first thing you think of is spiders! I do not like those hideous creatures at all! In fact, I firmly believe the only good spider is a completely dead spider; so one of my rules when my kids were growing up was, "kill all spiders and then kill them again!" And just so you know, there is…See More

Dear Lynda,

Thanks for the kind words, I am very excited to be part of this website. Thanks for including me.  I am back at my old church, in the postion I held for 10 years, was gone for 5 years to partner in ministry with my husband a small church in Laramie, Wy and when I came back, everything has changed! Not quite the reception I expetced.  The lady I took over for was "let go" and some people were not happy about it, so they are trying to make my life miserable... not acting very Christ like, so the "homecoming has been difficult.  I need all the support I can get.  This looks like a good place to start.

Thanks Lynda. I'm glad to be here and looking forward to learning the site.
