Pastor Appreciation Month

Church Family,

Many of you have asked about October being Pastor Appreciation Month and ways to honor our Pastors. With our Pastors and Staff being passionate about our upcoming events of Fall Festival and Eternity we will not be having  a formal luncheon. We do appreciate their heart for serving God and all that they are doing to reach the Ridge while meeting the needs of our Church body.

And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love. – 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 (The Message)

There are many ways to honor and appreciate our Pastor?s during Pastor Appreciation Month?

  • Write a Thank You Note
  • Mail a Card
  • Drop lunch or goodies by the Church Office
  • Send them a Gift Card for restaurants or services
  • Make a monetary donation to Pastor Appreciation Gifts

We will collect funds through the offering and online the entire month of October.  All funds collected for Pastor Appreciation will be split between all Pastoral Staff unless you specify a specific Pastor.  Make sure to write ?Pastor Appreciation? on your check or envelope memo. Donating through the Church will enable you, the giver, to receive contribution credit for you gift.  The gift will be distributed to the Pastoral Staff less applicable taxes.  If you would like to give the Pastor a gift directly you may do this and no contribution credit or taxes will apply to the gift.

Remember that their families are in service to our Church Family also. You may want to include them in any cards or notes you may send.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Church Office at 863-422-4488.

Blessings,

Amy Fowler
