Letter Encouraging Christmas Offering for Pastor and Staff

Dear Friends,

Once again, we come to this very special time of the year in which we celebrate and appreciate the birth of Jesus Christ. In this season, we do our best to reach out and be a blessing to our families, as well as others who mean a lot to us.

On behalf of the Church Board/Council, I would like to extend an invitation to the congregation of (NAME OF CHURCH) to show our love and appreciationto the Pastor(s) and Staff who continue to serve us so faithfully and go “above and beyond” in so many ways to be a blessing to us.

The Bible says; 1 Timothy 5:17 (NKJV) 17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.


Pastor Appreciation Letter Sample

Warm Greetings!

On behalf of the Pastor Appreciation Day Committee here at (NAME OF CHURCH), I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to this special day.

We invite our entire church family to join us for Pastor Appreciation Day on Sunday, (DATE) at (TIME).

We plan to do our best to be a blessing to a Pastor, who has been a blessing to our congregation in so many ways.

In addition to sharing the Word of God with us, he spends many hours studying and preparing. He also visits us during both crisis moments as well as times of great joy. In addition, he has dedicated babies and grieved with us as we have buried loved ones. He has stood at the altar “tying the knot” for couples who pledge their love, and at that same altar, he has also knelt at the altar as someone gives their life to Christ for the first time.


Love Offering Announcement Letter – Pastor Appreciation Day

Greetings in Christ,

On behalf of our Pastor Appreciation Day Committee, I wanted to send you this note as we look forward to celebrating our Pastors' ministry here at (NAME OF CHURCH) during the month of (MONTH).

We believe one of the more tangible things we can do for our Pastor(s) is to receive a love offering for Pastor Appreciation Day. While we do, of course, pay them regularly, this is an “over and above” blessing!

We will be receiving this love offering on Sunday morning (DATE) in our morning service. Of course, this is just one of the ways that we as a church body can appreciate those in leadership over us, and we would encourage you to bring a card expressing your appreciation for their ministry.


Invitation to Pastor’s 50th Anniversary at Church

Warm Greetings!

We are thrilled to announce that we here at (NAME OF CHURCH) will be celebrating an extraordinary milestone, and we would be so honored if you would consider joining us.

Pastor (NAME) has labored faithfully for 50 years here at our church. He and his wife have been consistent witnesses of the love of Jesus Christ here in this community and region. For that, we are so thankful.

On Sunday, (DATE) at (TIME), we will be hosting a special service in his honor and as a way to say “thank you” for serving us and this area so well. It's not often a church can celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the ministry of a Pastor, but we can, and we will!
