Our church has four departments : Men, Women, Youth, Children. The Women’s group has been active
and effective for years and years. The Youth group has been stronger and weaker from time to time.
Right now they are quite healthy. This year, finally, and Men’s group has taken shape. They meet weekly
and have offered special music in church services. (A favorite kind of music for me is the acapella men’s
groups that sing in Haiti.) It’s a very encouraging sign for the life of this little congregation. I am praising
God for this development. Never in my time here has the church had a group of active men like this!
I’ve been head of the Children’s Department at church for years. BUT, it’s never really been more than
Sunday school. We lost several good workers to marriage in the past couple of years (young ladies who
married men from other congregations.) Now, we are moving forward again. The youngest kids (3 to 6)
have a great teacher and aid. The middle kids (7 to 10) have two young ladies working hard to lead them
forward. The older kids (11 to 14) have me. AND, we’ve begun meeting each week to plan and prepare a
better program for our kids. We’ve organized the kids into two choirs that will sing in church services. I
lead neither of them, but will accompany both. We’ve also re-started our Children’s Church program
which takes kids out of the church during the message for their own little program.
God’s family needs men, needs women, needs youth, and needs children. Join our church in praying for
each of these groups. To God be the glory.
