Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for October 4

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:

This month is all about contentment – deciding to be okay with what you have. Just making that statement is hard, isn’t it? Are we REALLY okay with what we have? Do our bank accounts reflect that? Do our calendars reflect that? Does our prayer life reflect that? Paul had certainly figured this whole contentment thing out. From PRISON, Paul tells the church at Philippi that the real secret to contentment is through our relationship with Jesus. Because a relationship with Jesus means that in the end, everything will turn out all right. When things don’t go our way, we can still find contentment because God is in control. Before you meet with your kids this week, write out this week’s bottom line and place it on your mirror or the dashboard of your car. Pray it as a prayer every day by saying “God, whatever today holds, help me be okay no matter what.”

Lead your team in prayer and have a great Sunday!
