Buzz Sunday School Lessons–Not for Every Volunteer


Buzz Sunday School Lessons; they’re not for every volunteers! After developing Buzz and watching how people have responded to it, I know something for sure–Buzz is NOT for every volunteer.

Here’s who it’s NOT for: The volunteer who goes the extra mile to prepare the lesson. The volunteer who goes online to find better crafts, games, or whatever to improve the curriculum. The volunteer who’s a trained educator. The volunteer who doesn’t bat an eye at an hour of reviewing the lesson ahead of time.

Here’s who it IS for: The volunteer who loves kids but hates preparation. The volunteer who has 10 minutes to pray and read a devotion to prepare his/her heart. The volunteer who doesn’t have a clue about educational theory. The volunteer who’s said no to you for years because he/she doesn’t have enough time to prepare or isn’t an educator.

So, trust me…don’t use Buzz if your team is full of the first kind of volunteer (I’d recommend FaithWeaver instead). But if your church is full of the second kind of volunteer, I can guarantee that Buzz is the curriculum you’re looking for.
