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:
Have you ever received some really GOOD news? The car doesn’t really need that $1000 fix after all. Your oldest made it into college with a scholarship. It came back benign. When you received this big news, did you keep it yourself? No way. You called your mom, you told your neighbor, you celebrated with your family. You were happy and that happiness just couldn’t be contained. This week, you’ll be talking about how the disciples shared the BIG news of Jesus everywhere they went. And because they were willing to share, here you stand thousands years later ready to share that same news with a rambunctious group of 3-5 year olds! Pretty awesome.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
