Spring has finally arrived! For many of us that means some much-needed spring cleaning, for others it may mean yard work and in addition it means a fresh start. Time to dust off the shelves and start thinking of new ways to rejuvenate your ministry programs across all levels. The energy in the church is higher than ever after the season of Lent, Easter festivities and Summer just around the corner.
