Appreciation Letter to Long Time Children’s Sunday School Teacher


Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
–Proverbs 22:6

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.


Appreciation Letter to Long Time Adult Sunday School Teacher


Pastors and teachers both assume the awesome honor and responsibility of providing adults with deeper insight and understanding of God’s Word. As we both know, this job is satisfying, demanding, and challenging.

Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.
–Proverbs 9:9


Thank You for Volunteering to Teach in the Church

Greetings in Christ!

I wanted to take this opportunity to send you a note to thank you so much for volunteering your time to teach in the (NAME OF CLASS OR MINISTRY).

While it seems like we tend to ask for volunteers quite a bit here at the church, rest assured, we are always thrilled when someone steps up to “answer the call” and get involved in a way perhaps they never have before! It's exciting to see people begin to grow in their faith as they reach out to be a blessing to others!


Thank You For Coming to VBS

Dear ___________,

We were so glad to have you visit us for our Vacation Bible School this past week!

What a great time we had together as we learned more about the Bible in fun and exciting ways such as singing, hearing stories, playing games, making crafts and more.

The things you learned here at VBS are not just for a week of enjoyment, but they are meant to help you as you continue to grow older.  Many adults often say that these same stories are a great help to them as they go through many difficult moments in their lives, and we believe that you too will one day see the wonderful value of these Bible stories, both while you are young and as you get older.
