Pastor Appreciation Day began with the establishment of Clergy Appreciation Month.

In Timothy 1 (5:17), Paul began the concept of clergy appreciation when he stated that the elders of the church are worthy of a double honor. He reiterated this idea in Thessalonians 1 (5: 12-13) when he stated that those who work hard among you should be held in the highest regard for their work.

This idea became Clergy Appreciation Month in 1992, established by pastors and religious workers. Eventually, Pastor Appreciation Day would form out of this month.

You can celebrate the hard work of your church pastors in a number of different ways: handwritten notes or cards, small acts of kindness, take them to lunch, or simply give them a heartfelt thanks. Of course, one of the most important ways to show you care is by assuring that you attend worship service and pay attention to their sermons! (Note: We will be hearing from Alexis very soon.

Please remember to tell both Pastor David and our Youth Director, Alexis, how much we love and appreciate them both!!
