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:
Abraham and Sarah longed for a baby. They waited and waited and waited. And when Sarah heard the message that she would finally have her promised son, what was reaction? She laughed. She thought they were crazy. We forget sometimes that the people in scripture were real life actual people with real life emotions and reactions. So what is that you’re waiting for that seems impossible? What promise if fulfilled might cause you to laugh in disbelief? Be encouraged that God hears your prayers. The answer may not come in the time or the way you’d like. But the good news is that no matter what the answer is, God is with you and His word is secure. So trust Him. And tell your preschoolers about how they can trust Him too. Because [Bottom Line] God keeps His promises.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
