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:
Saul’s story is one of the greatest stories of transformation in all of scripture. Here’s a guy who despised Christians and everything they stood for. But after being blinded on the Damascus Road, he finally listened and believed the Big News about Jesus. And because of his dramatic transformation, we now know Paul as the greatest missionary of all time. The preschoolers in your classroom need to hear this BIG NEWS just as much as Saul/ Paul did on that road thousands of years ago. Maybe you think you’ll never make the kind of impact that Paul did. But by choosing to show up on Sundays, you ARE making an eternal difference in the life of a child. Thank you for choosing to spend your time sharing this BIG NEWS week after week.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
