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:
Zaccheaus was the absolute LAST person anyone would have expected for Jesus to pay attention to that day. But he did. Jesus told Zaccheaus to come down, invited himself over for a meal and completely changed the course of his life. It’s important to point out to our preschoolers that even when we mess up, Jesus STILL loves us. There is nothing we could ever do that would make him stop loving us. Ask God to help you share this truth with your children this week. We don’t have to do everything right, we don’t have to earn His love and we don’t have to do anything to keep his love. Jesus offers it to us, without any strings attached. Who does Jesus love? [Bottom Line] Jesus loves everyone.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
