Volunteer Pre-Service Pep Talk for September 16, 2018

Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day: Abraham and Sarah longed for a baby.
