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:
Every kid understands the importance of building a strong foundation. Every lego creation, Jenga game, and sand castle has to start somewhere. But for believers, the foundation of our faith starts in one place, specifically with ONE person: Jesus. All that we believe centers around his life, death and resurrection. Because of who He is and what He did, we can have confidence that our faith is strong. He is the cornerstone upon which the disciples and apostles begin building. And that building up of believers continues today. In fact, YOU as a small group leader, are contributing to that foundation laid strongly and securely so long ago. Before you lead your group this week, thank God for Jesus and the life he brings both now and forever. Because [Bottom Line] Jesus matters most.
