I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on all that you do in your service as a church board member and let you know that I appreciate your dedication to this important role in the body of our church.
You have helped see to it that our church fulfills its mission, vision, and values. You’ve spent time in meetings evaluating our resources and ensuring that we are being responsible stewards of the gifts we’ve been given. You have taken steps to address and resolve issues in a way that keeps Christ at the center of it all. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view and/or copy full text!
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.

Appreciation Letter to Retiring Church Choir Director
Dear (FIRST NAME)
“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”

For years, you have helped bring the message and wisdom of Christ to our congregation. Through thoughtful planning, you have carried forth the good news of each season through the choir’s songs.
