Resuming Our Teaching Ministry
Are you back in your building? Are you back to your classes? Whatever your situation, let’s do what we can to get those in our care into God’s Word. Our motto: everybody can do something. That “something” will look different church to church, but the Lord will help us as we lead others to Scripture. Three things to keep in mind:
- Follow the direction of your leadership. Connect with them about any new ideas or plans you have so your trajectory is in keeping with church safety plans and local ordinances.
- Use this juncture to try new things for your group or class. Now may be the time to change formats, rearrange the room, or experiment with new ideas.
- Prioritize the move of the Spirit and study of God’s Word. The pandemic clarified our mission. Our priority is first getting our group into the presence of God and His Word. Everything else is secondary to that mission.
