We are so glad to have you with us today here at (NAME OF CHURCH)! This is a very special day as we take the time to “give honor where honor is due” and recognize and appreciate the Pastor(s) of our church during this Pastor's Appreciation Month.
Whether this is your first time with us or you are a regular attendee, we want you to know how much we appreciate having you here with us. We trust you will enjoy the service while experiencing the wonderful presence of the Lord as the service progresses.
We will take some time during this service to let our Pastor(s) and families know that we appreciate them so much. We value their ministry and will not only support them today, but will love and pray for them throughout the year. We trust you will join us!
We are so happy to have you with us today here at (NAME OF CHURCH)!
A little later in the service, we will be honoring some very special people as we celebrate our Pastor(s) on Pastor Appreciation Day.
We believe it is essential to let them know just how much we appreciate all they do here at the Church and in our community. They serve with the heart of Christ who set the example for all of us as he knelt and washed the feet of the Disciples. Most likely, there will be no “foot washing” in a literal sense today (and aren't you glad for that?), yet we will thank them for their servant spirit and give honor where honor is due.
We want to welcome you to this very special service today in which we will take some time to recognize and appreciate our Pastor(s). All of us are so grateful to the Lord for blessing us with solid and steady leadership! We believe it is quite Biblical to recognize our leadership in this manner.
The Bible tell us in 1 Timothy 5:17 – Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching.
While we know our ultimate reward is in Heaven one day, it's quite clear that honor is something that can (and should) be given while we are here on this earth.
We are thrilled to have you here at (NAME OF CHURCH) today and trust you enjoy an inspirational and enjoyable time worshiping the Lord. There is something amazing and powerful about the corporate worship experience as voices rise as one to bring the Lord the honor due His Name!
Today is a very special day here as we take some time during the service to recognize and appreciate our Pastor(s). The month of October has been designated
