Pastor Appreciation Month
October 1 - October 31
October is Pastor Appreciation Month
October is Pastor Appreciation Month, and there are a number of unique and creative ways to honor Pastor Stewart and show how much he and his family mean to us.
Here are 3 ways to show that we hold our pastor and the position in the highest regard!
Invite a friend to church
Inviting a new person to church is a wonderful way to show our pastor you value him. It signifies that you don’t just acknowledge the great work he does, but you want to share it with others, and you are spreading the word to show appreciation.
Kind gestures come in many forms. Giving our pastor his favorite coffee (it’s Kahlua decaf btw – Melinda prefers Diet Dr. Pepper!), making the family their favorite meal, offering to watch the kids for an evening, or presenting him with a mug that has “World’s Best Pastor” printed on it is a nice way to show gratitude. And remember, we’re Baptists, food is always good!
A simple word of appreciation
Write a note expressing how Pastor Stewart has positively influenced your life and your relationship with God. Being able to see the fruits of their labor is not always possible, and your words can brighten their day and let them know the time and effort they put into being a pastor is worth it.
