St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Bel Air recently became one of at least three Harford County churches to offer a deaf ministry."It's more of an outreach effort and a labor of love," said the Rev. Paul Schmidt, assistant pastor of the church. "It wasn't prompted by a large number of deaf people."In fact, he says he isn't sure whether any deaf people attend St. Matthew.Two years ago, June Cain, director of outreach and assimilation, began the Signing Spirits, a group dedicated to providing services to the deaf, "in an effort to minister to all of God's people."

For many Christians, Easter morning is a time when churchgoers flock to their places of worship to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. One church in Timonium, however, is sending its parishioners away — specifically, 3 miles south along York Road to Towson University's SECU Arena. "It's our first time being at SECU Arena, and we are very excited. Our ministry teams, from 7 years old and up, are very excited to serve [Easter] Sunday," said Kellie Caddick, matter conference coordinator at Church of the Nativity.

It was a typical Sunday worship service with a twist. The congregation at Ames United Methodist Church in Bel Air, the same lively and prayerful group that planned the hugely successful Yolanda Adams concert a couple weeks ago, was offerering hearty praise songs and worshipping together Sept. 2, in the church's Baltimore Pike sanctuary. Pastor Jay Blake, their annointed and ebullient leader, had just finished delivering a thought-provoking sermon. Challenging them that faith without works is dead, he implored the assembly to gather after the worship service for a brief road trip.
