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 you hear the word “Peace” what picture comes to mind? A calm sea? A sunset? A beautiful vista or a cloud filled sky? We often equate peace with calm. But what if peace was deeper than that? What if we could find real, abiding peace amidst all the chaos? It is possible when we remember the promise that Jesus gives us in Matthew 6. The same God who cares for the birds and flowers cares for you. You don’t have to worry or fret about the future no matter how crazy the picture of your life may seem. Jesus can give you peace. And the same is true for the preschoolers in your classroom. As these little ones are just beginning to understand the concept of worry, let’s point them to the one who can shoulder it all. We can have peace because [Bottom Line] Jesus gives me the power to do everything.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
