|Report from Scott County Lifeline Connection||
|By dstrickland | 3 Mar 2010|
Scott County Lifeline Connection launched its community ministry in the spring of 2008 with a handful of faithful volunteers. Throughout the remainder of our first year we had 46 people register for our small groups.
In 2009 we continued to work with the courts and we began to see referrals from outside the courts come our way. People in the community responded favorably to the work Lifeline Connection is doing for individuals and families with life-controlling problems. Registrations for small groups climbed to 192 for 2009. Several Human Resources people at local companies began to express interest in sending at risk employees with substance or anger problems to Scott County Lifeline Connection as a remedial step in keeping their jobs.
Six weeks into 2010 we have seen the growth trend continue at SCLC. So far this year 54 have already registered for the small groups offered. And the year has just begun. At the present rate SCLC is on track to double the number of people who registered for small groups last year. It means we will have the privilege to serve 400 or more people in our community and help them with life-controlling problems this year.
