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:
We continue our Happy Helpers Theme this week as we look at the story of Nehemiah. Nehemiah knew that he could never complete the huge task of rebuilding the wall by himself. The job required lots and lots of people! And with their help, the wall was rebuilt and the city was protected. Nehemiah was so thankful for the people who helped him. From parents, to teachers, to grandparents, to older siblings, to coaches and friends, preschoolers have people all around who help them every day. Let’s remind our kids this week to say, “thank you” to them! [Bottom Line] I am thankful for people who help me.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
