Perhaps this letter seems a bit random, but I wanted to reach out to you as one of our worship team members to let you know just how much I appreciate your ministry here at (name of church).
I can’t imagine what it would be like to attend church without the beautiful sound of music filling the atmosphere with praise to God. Whether that sound is on the various instruments or vocal expression, there can be little doubt that such talents and gifts are a wonderful enhancement to all that takes place in service.

Appreciation Letter to Long Time Children’s Sunday School Teacher
Dear (FIRST NAME),
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Teachers are like pastors: you assume the responsibility and privilege of sharing God’s Word in a way that makes it easy for others to understand. Explaining scripture to children, especially, is neither a small or easy task. On the contrary, the task of relating the abstract or challenging aspects of our Creator is one that requires a special set of gifts from the Lord, and I, for one, am thankful that you have put your spiritual gifts to use so willingly over the years.

Thank You for Serving on Church Pastoral Search Committee
Dear (FIRST NAME),
I know there have been many hours of prayer, study, and thoughtful discussion taking place during this search for a new pastor. I know that the committee has been working hard to listen to and follow God’s leading. To serve on the committee requires one to put aside their own interests in order to spiritually discern what is right and best and God’s true calling for the church. After all, you are seeking the Lord’s guidance and direction on who it is, exactly, that He is calling to be the next pastor of CHURCH NAME. We trust that, through Christ’s leading, the committee has found/will find the right person will come to serve CHURCH NAME as our new pastor.
