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:
All month long, we’re learning about how the Bible is a special book, given to us by God to show us the best way to live. Each week, we’ll take a look at something the Bible tells us about how we should live and why it’s so important. This week, we’ll focus on the truth that we are to love one another. It’s easy to love people that are easy to love. But what about people that aren’t so easy to love? What about a friend who refuses to share, or is unkind? As you lead your preschoolers this week, ask God to show you the people in your own world that need to be loved. Who is easy for you to love? Who requires a little more effort? Take the time to thank God for giving you His word.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
