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:
When the wise men followed the star, God led them to the one they’d been searching for! The star traveled ahead of them and stopped over the house where Jesus resided. The wise men were full of joy at the sight of this star! When they arrived, they brought gifts, bowing down to worship the king of ALL kings. Imagine how Mary and Joseph must have felt, seeing these men marvel at this precious child. We exchange gifts today with family and friends as a way to celebrate Jesus, the best gift ever! Let’s teach our preschoolers right from the start that Christmas is about ONE thing – not lights or bells or decorations or even what’s under the tree – Christmas is about JESUS, our friend forever. How do we know God loves us? [Bottom Line] God gave us Jesus!
