Pastor Appreciation - The month of October has been set aside for Pastor Appreciation Month. This is a special time that congregations across the globe set aside each year to honor their pastors and pastoral families for their hard work, sacrificial dedication and ministry to the local church. The Personnel Committee encourages you to show your appreciation to our pastoral staff over the coming weeks by providing them with notes of encouragement, small tokens of appreciation such as gift cards or homemade gifts. A table will be located in the foyer for you to place your contributions over the next few weeks.
