Last week was a great week! I am so thankful for all your hard work and preparation for an awesome resurrection celebration on Easter.
The Gospel was proclaimed in every Sunday School classroom and every service. If you’re like me, this week is a mixture of exhilaration and exhaustion.
Let me simply offer you three important ideas following a big weekend like Easter. Also, I am adding a great little video that you will enjoy and might find helpful to share with your class.
1. Come to the teacher’s meeting tonight (Wednesday Night) in the Fellowship Hall. We have LOTS of visitor cards to follow up with. If you have to miss that meeting, your director will follow up with you and give you your cards. In any case, the first priority after a big weekend should be to follow up with guests in some simple but meaningful way.
2. Rest. Catch your breath. Next Sunday is coming, and we want to be able to approach each weekend with our church family at a high intensity level. It is important however to acknowledge that big emotional weekends take a toll on you. Spending some intentional, quiet, downtime in the presence of the Lord this week will be the key to recharging.
3. Brag on your people. This past month we had a goal of averaging 600 in Sunday School groups and we did it! In a month that included Spring Break, lots of sickness going around, and one Sunday with a hard cold rain on Sunday morning…we still met our goal. Our people made commitments and kept them. Friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers were invited and welcomed as guests. I am so thankful for the fact that our church believes in the community of Sunday School, and WORKS to make it great. I am so proud and thankful for you.
As always, call me if I can ever help you in any way.
