We all know that Christmas can be the busiest season of the year. For Church Leaders it’s even worse combining the stress and busyness of family, friends and holiday events with planning and preparation for one the most important church events of the year. And let’s not forget you also need to minister to people and take care of your staff. It’s a lot to juggle, which is why it’s also the perfect time of year to use a pre-designed sermon series and all the resources that come along with it and here’s how to choose the right one…
First, predesigned kits are not “cheating” they just provide you with a foundation of resources that you can build upon. Plus they can help you take a fresh approach to a sermon series you have probably preached for years. But most of all they can help free up some time so you can embrace the season and feel less stress.
On top of all that, this sermon series option makes communication and promotion a lot easier for you and your team. It puts everyone on the same page and provides professionally-designed graphics you can use for your website, social media pages, sermon slides and more. Plus you will already have videos to promote your services and to play during the series!
So which kit should you choose – here is an easy guide to sermon kits that will help you tell the age-old story in a new and fresh way:
