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 read the story of the ten lepers, it’s easy to imagine the nine healed men running for home just as fast as they could to tell their families the good news! But one man stopped. One of the healed men took the time to say those two most important words to Jesus. When someone helps you, when someone is kind, when someone shares, when someone encourages, we should always say, “thank you!” And of course, we need to say thank you to God for who He is and all He’s done. Who can you thank for everything? [Bottom Line] I can thank God for everything.
