As a volunteer at my church, I know exactly how you can make me feel like a million bucks… just have everything I need for this week’s lesson ready when I get to church. Now, there will probably be some prep work I will need to do before game time, but that’s to be expected.
We’ve all been there…you arrive at church knowing you are going to do an activity involving marshmallows. Lo and behold, there are no marshmallows in the supply cabinet. Now you are frantically looking around to find something that can replace marshmallows. Inside you’re screaming, “HELP!”
I think you get the picture. Taking care of your volunteers will help them want to keep volunteering. They don’t do it for the money or their own glory and they don’t take what they do lightly. It’s easy to see what stressful situations can arise if there is no plan in place. Be their hero and make their Sundays smooth sailing (before the kids get there)!
