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 teaching our preschoolers that [Bottom Line] I can follow Jesus. John the Baptist understood this truth. Though many came to hear him teach and be baptized, John was quick to point others toward Jesus. John knew that Jesus was the one God had sent to save us. Imagine how surprised he must have been when Jesus insisted that John baptize him! John protested of course, but Jesus insisted. And when Jesus came out of the water, God spoke from heaven, declaring this was indeed his son. John recognized that of all the people he could choose to follow, Jesus was the most important leader of all. Let’s help our preschoolers learn this same truth this month. Who can you follow? [Bottom Line] I can follow Jesus.
