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!
Today is Pentecost Sunday which is a significant day to remember and appreciate in the history of the church. The word “Pentecost” basically means “50”, and is doubly significant when one realizes that the Holy Spirit was poured out upon those early believers who were waiting in the upper room as they waited in obedience and expectancy.
We are thrilled to have so many with us today who are the first to respond to our call in times of need. While we hope we never have to make that call, it's always comforting to know that help is a matter of minutes away. There have been a few times over the years we've even had to call for help even after gathering here for Church on a Sunday.
Good morning! We want to welcome those of you who have joined us for worship today on this Labor Day Weekend!
For some, this is the last chance to get away before Summer “closes down shop” for the year. We are grateful that YOU have chosen to be in the Lord's house this weekend!
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
