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:
God loved the world so much that He sent His ONLY Son to us. Jesus, Emmanuel, God WITH us. Jesus’ entrance into this world came in the most unlikely way, in the humblest of places. Why? Because even at his birth, God was declaring that Jesus came for everyone. God chose to send us the most valuable precious gift ever – His one and only Son. As you prepare for this weekend, bow your head and thank your heavenly Father for the honor of sharing this GOOD NEWS with your precious 3, 4 and 5 year olds. Some may have heard this before. Many will be hearing it for the first time. Either way, make sure you’re ready to answer this important life changing question: why is Jesus special? Jesus is special because Jesus is God’s Son.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
