This local church has been gifted with Pastors and Teachers for purpose of discipling the Believers the doctrines of Christ (Eph. 4:11-16). Everyone of them is different in the own right and are uniquely equipped and trained themselves for the ministry. As we grow and mature in our walk with the Lord, we are encouraged to encourage these faithful ministers in their labor of love.
To all of you, please look within your ministry for the person or persons you would like to recognize. On the 4th Sunday of this month (October 24th) we will give time for the ministry presentations
The concept of the appreciation is expanded beyond the work or service of the Pastor but includes the work of those who have labored in the word and in deed. Take a moment this month to call out that person who has ministered Christ to you and helped mature you in your faith. If you have a special person you would like to recognize this month, we can recognize them on the 24th during the Morning service.
October is Pastor/Clergy Appreciation Month
"And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves." I Thessalonians 5:12, 13
