Pastor Appreciation Month

October is a significant month for United Methodist pastors and the SPRC committee would like to honor both Matt and Shana and their families for their tireless work and devotion to our church.  This month was created in 1992 to honor those who served in ministry.  1 Timothy, 5:17 reads:  “The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching”.  We will present our gifts of thanks to them on Sunday, October 27 at morning worship.   There are several ways in which you can participate in this celebration.  You can donate by placing your gift into the offering plate or by giving your donation to SPRC Chair Sueann Freeman.  Monetary gifts should be earmarked “Pastor Appreciation Sunday” either on a check or cash and put in one of the offering envelopes found in the pews or turned in to the church office.   You can also write a special note or card of thanks to each pastor and their families.  All gifts and cards should be received no later than Wednesday, October 23.
