Free Printable Sign Up Sheets
As a ministry with programs and volunteer needs, we are always having to request for people to sign up for upcoming events. Your church management software might have a sign up app you can use. If not, you might consider using an easy and free web based app like Jot Form.
However, you might be where I’ve been time and time again…..just needing something that will work in a hurry. Today I’d like to share with you some free printable sign up sheets that not only do the trick, but look good as well.

Free Christmas Devotional for Families
With all the marketing and materialism it can be easy to miss out on the true meaning of Christmas.
Dr. Michael Kennedy has provided a daily family devotional, “The Cross and the Manger,” for the first 25 days of December that will instill a true Christmas spirit within each of the members of your family. You can print and distribute for all the families within your children’s ministry.
Four great reasons to use this devotional this year:
1. Biblical. It starts in Genesis and shows you how all of Scripture leads up to Jesus.
2. Family Oriented. It is written with families in mind. Nothing difficult. This makes it easy for almost all of your parents.
3. Brief. We all know December is nuts. It is non-stop and adding another thing seems impossible. This won’t be burdensome. Instead, it will be well worth it.
4. Free. No cost for you to use with your family. No cost for your church families to use either.
What are you waiting for? Download the pdf now. You can set it up to print out in booklet form to make it easy for families too.
Dr. Michael Kennedy, is a pastor with a heart for families. He serves as Senior Pastor at New Vision Fellowship in Dublin, GA. You can follow his blog here.
