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:
This month we’re learning about how Jesus loves EVERYONE! In our Bible story this week, we’ll hear about the woman Jesus met at the well. She was so surprised when Jesus asked her for a drink. She was a Samaritan. Jesus was a Jew. Jews and Samaritans didn’t associate with each other. And here was Jesus, engaging her in conversation to ask for a drink. But Jesus didn’t care about where she was from or what she had done. He wanted the woman to know that he loved her, no matter what. This week, you have the opportunity to talk to your children about how [Bottom Line] Jesus loves everyone! He wants to be our friend forever. No matter who you are, you are deeply loved!
