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:
Imagine for a minute how Mary must have felt that day when the angel appeared to her. Who was she that God would choose her to carry out this HUGE plan to bring His only Son into the world? Yet Mary knew that Jesus would be special – the most precious gift ever. This week, ask God to help you see just how special Jesus is and what this gift of a Savior means for you. Pray for each of the children in your class to see this truth too – that Jesus is special because Jesus is the son of God!
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
