October is Ministry Appreciation Month

Did I mis-type the title of this blog post? Nope! More commonly known as Pastor Appreciation Month, in our church body we call October Ministry Appreciation Month. Wny, you ask? Because our pastor believes all who work in areas of ministry leadership, in a volunteer or paid position, should be "thanked" this month. It's a blessing to see those who serve week in and week out receiving hugs, notes, and even small gifts as tokens of appreciation for their service.

So, to all you who serve in your church body in any facet or form, a hearty "THANKS" goes out to you!! For all of your service, both seen and unseen, thank you so very, very much. It makes a difference and one day when you are with the Lord, you will see just what a difference your service made. After all, God's Word promises that we should not grow weary in well doing, for we will reap a harvest of righteousness if we do not give up.

Be sure to thank those who serve in your local church ~ it really does mean a lot!

Lord bless your servant's hearts!

Day 49 done :)

  2. Jan,
    All of us at Live Oaks are especially grateful for all you do - not the least of all me! I hope this doesn't sound lame or weird but as your husband and partner in the ministry, I am very thankful for all you do!
