Welcome to the 22nd day of the Peace UMC 25th Anniversary Trivia Chase Take a look at the photo at the left. This is not the question, but a bonus photo collage of Director of Music Ministries Greg Carswell on the occassion of his resignation from that staff position in order to spend more time on his personal spiritual growth and to participate as a member of the congregation. Greg was very instrumental in our early music ministry, including the formation and direction of our Chancel Choir and of the original Praise Team. You can see an enlargement of this photo on the website. His resignation was effective December 20, 1998. Peace UMC member Jonathan Morris agreed to become the Interim Director until Easter of 1998.

However, for today's question, can you recall the formation of the original Care Groups? Can you name an outreach ministry that benefited from their formation? Can you tell us more? You may click on the photo to enlarge it. Send your answers to Larry the Lay Leader! (Click)

In the late 1990's, say 1997 or 98, our Small Group Ministry came into being as a way to create and support small, accountability groups, Care Groups if you will, of usually no more than 12 people. There were many groups created initially with some still in existance today. Each would meet and study on their own terms, being accountable to each other for learning and serving. Many of the groups performed outreach service projects on a periodic basis, including making and serving dinner at the Ronald McDonald House, and the example shown at the left which displays an outreach effort at the Coalition For The Homeless, where a meal was procured and served.

As a followup question, can anyone identify the group being shown in the photos?
