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:
Three times Peter denied even knowing Jesus. And each time, he felt more and more ashamed. But Jesus knew what was going to happen and He’d already planned to forgive him. That’s why, later on, Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved him. He wanted to give Peter the chance to say he was sorry. But here’s the really important part – Jesus wanted the opportunity to forgive him. Peter learned a huge truth that day on the beach – that Jesus NEVER stops loving us. Your preschoolers need to hear this truth too. Jesus loves everyone and His love will never stop.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
