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


Appreciation Letter to Retiring Church Choir Director


“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.”
— Colossians 3:16

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. Your musical direction has lifted the hearts of our people, inspired them to walk more closely with the Lord, and enhanced our weekly services.


Invitation to Worship Team Tryouts

Dear (First Name),

I am so incredibly thankful that you are part of our community at Christian Life Church. As you know, our church desires to offer services where God is glorified. We also desire to honor Him in our worship each week.

We are in a new season as we build a team to lead our congregation into worship. Because of your unique talents in music, singing and worship, I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider participating in our upcoming fall Worship Team Tryouts.


Invitation to Serve on Prayer Altar Team

Dear (First Name),

As you know, we are a church committed to the person of Jesus Christ and God’s revealed word, the Bible. It is our desire that people come to place their trust in Christ to forgive and lead them, and that they grow in their relationship with Him.

We also deeply value connecting to God through prayer. We know that Paul wrote in I Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
