Spiritual Nurture for Sunday School Leaders


Great teachers are those who passionately follow Jesus Christ and share their faith out of the overflow of their hearts! Here is a helpful list of Lenten devotions to pass along to your teaching team to encourage a deeper walk with Christ during this special season. 

On Sunday, April 20 we celebrate Jesus' resurrection. Traditionally, many people use Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter, as a time to reflect and repent. During this time, we can prepare our hearts to receive the gift Jesus gave us through the cross. Below are some prepared devotions you may consider using with your family or as an individual during this season of Lent. 

Bible Gateway has a number of different devotionals that you can sign up for here.

You can listen to a daily devotion by Mike Breen, from 3DM ministries - he is currently working through the Gospel of Matthew. 

From the Christian Reformed Church Office of Social Justice - a Lenten devotional series that focuses on the "Care of Creation".

From YouVersion – The Bible App each of these can subscribed to and read from the device of your choice.
