Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
Can you name some common challenges the kids in your group are facing? You probably don’t have to think too hard to name a few. Sometimes these challenges are big – parents who are fighting, a family member who is sick. But many times, these challenges just SEEM big – a friend is being unkind, a bad grade comes back on a report card. As an adult, you know these challenges will pass but in the midst of them, it certainly doesn’t seem that way. The good news is, no matter what the day ahead has in store [Bottom Line] when Jesus is with you, you can face anything. If we can help our kids latch onto this truth now, we will certainly set them up to live a life that’s FULLY alive.
