The following is a post from contributing writer Stef.
October is Pastor Appreciation Month. This is a great opportunity to thank our children’s pastors while getting our homeschoolers involved in this pre-thanksgiving thankful state of mind!
You do not have to be a regular attender to appreciate a pastor. You do not have to be a church member to appreciate a pastor.
If your children attend Sunday School, VBS, Upwards, or Awana, you have a great opportunity to take some time this month to thank them for their work in your child’s life.
Or look back in your own life and recall those pastors who made an impact. I came to Christ at the age of twenty-six. I clearly remember the pastor who baptized me (in a hot tub in December).
Maybe your experience is not the typical Sunday church setting but rather after school Young Life, outreach project, family member, friend, or neighbor!
This month do something creative with your homeschoolers to appreciate a pastor.
- make a thank you card
- bake a dessert
- send a fruit basket
- order a pizza
- make lunch sandwiches
- make a poster of your children’s favorite church memories & sign it
- sign up to serve
