Welcome to Pastor's Appreciation Day 2020!
What a year it's been!
Every year, we take some time during the month of October to “give honor where honor is due” by honoring our Pastor(s) here at (NAME OF CHURCH).
God has truly blessed us with a Pastor and wife who truly have hearts to minister to those of us who are part of this church body.
We all have had decisions to make during these past months that impact our families, and even at times, employees or people we work with daily. At the beginning of this year, not one of us looked over the horizon of 2020 and predicted such difficult times for our world, nation, churches, or families. Yet, we have taken it “one day at a time,” trusting God will help us to make decisions that will be correct.
I highly doubt our Pastor ever took “Pandemic 101” as a course in Seminary or Bible School!
