A while back, I mentioned that "big changes" were on the way for me. The first was the New Baby. The second has finally come 'round, as I'm starting my new part-time job at the church as our head of children's ministry. Now, clearly, we have a pretty small church, since Head of Children's Ministry is a Part-Time Job. Nevertheless, everybody at church is Really Quite Excited about my coming on board. I'm Quite Excited, too. However, I'm also just a little bit Intimidated (seems to be a Theme around here lately, doesn't it?) at the task that lies ahead.
We haven't had a Children's Minister for the past few years. I've talked to everybody involved about finding ways to make this job work around my current Work Schedule, so I don't believe that's going to be an Issue moving forward. We're at an exciting time in our church's life, as we're about to start on a big new Building Project that will improve our Sunday School rooms for all ages, and we're hoping to use that momentum to kick some life into our children's department. Now, I know that Great Moments are born from Great Opportunities, but I can't help but feel like I'm at least a little out of my league here.
I'm sure it's just Insecurity speaking, or Inexperience, but I really want to do a Good Thing here for God, for the church, and for these Kids. (First I have to learn all of their First Names)
In all seriousness (and proper capitalization), I would appreciate any and all prayers. This what I do is not necessarily a huge thing, but it is a significant thing. May God bring Himself glory through the labors of my hands. (As He will, and as He always does)
