October is Pastor Appreciation Monthby Gordon P. Lawton
There was a little note in the September Sabbath Recorder, at the bottom of the Pastor Profile page, that reminded us about October being Pastor Appreciation Month. This is not required but is a nice thing to do.
It is easy to forget to say "thank you" and "you are appreciated." The designation of October for this is only one of the reminders we have. Anniversaries of your Pastor's service to the congregation, ordination, accreditation, marriage or other significant event give an excuse to say "we appreciate you."
Ideas can be found on line by searching "pastor appreciation ideas" or other similar searches.
As you consider how to show your appreciation you may want to know how long your pastor has served as a pastor, your pastor's ordination date or year of accreditation. Contact the Center on Ministry (firstname.lastname@example.org) for these dates and other ideas about showing your appreciation for your pastor.
