Summer is here and it’s a time for vacations, extra time with the kids, outdoor activities and relaxing a bit. But even though your Sunday services may have lots of empty chairs and staff and volunteers are scarce, as the pastor you still need to provide a powerful and compelling service every weekend. Don’t fall into the summer slump – instead, use this season as a time to try something new and get a little help by using a couple sermon series kits! 

There are a few benefits of using a pre-packaged church kit or two during the summer:  

  1. Lower summer attendance allows you to change up your normal style or step out of the box giving services a more casual or conversational feel. This can allow you to talk about topics you may not normally address during the rest of the ministry year. 

  2. Picking up a sermon package gives your staff a break too! Most of these kits include social media graphics, service videos, sermon slides and planning guides. Plus when you pick a sermon kit, you can really plan ahead giving you time to promote the series and get people excited. Some kits also have coordinated invitations available to allow your regular attenders to invite their friends, coworkers and neighbors to come too. 

So schedule the rest of your summer around these complete series. For greater flexibility and a savings on your budget, subscribe to a sermon kit subscription and get access to sermon kits like these all year long for less money! 

Friend Sunday

The new Friend Sunday two-week church kit is designed to first challenge your congregation to boldly invite their neighbors and unchurched friends to come with them to church and then to introduce new visitors to Jesus who is their savior and friend.

This kit has coordinated invite tools and banners

Kingdom Treasure

Through four powerful parables, Jesus unearths the beauty and possibilities of his Kingdom that is bursting onto the scenes all around us. In this 4-week series, teach your congregation how to unlock the treasure of God’s Kingdom in their own lives.

Rolling Up Our Sleeves

To serve other people, you often have to get your hands dirty. This one-sermon kit is created to help you plan and host a Serve Sunday or Serve Day event. Based on John 13:1-7, the sermon and resources will help you teach your members how to be more like Jesus through words and actions and serving those around us.

Not so Secret Sauce

This 6-week sermon series will reveal the “not so secret” recipe for a full and meaningful life. In this series, your church will learn from scripture that a full life begins with faith and adds goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection and love. It’s not a secret sauce, it is a clear recipe from God’s word!

Renewed: Daily Practices for a Fresh Life

This 4-week sermon series helps people experience new, fresh things God wants to do in our lives, because we so often feel stuck in a rut and just go through the motions. Instead of just surviving life, God wants us to thrive and experience the abundant life he came to give us.
