October is Pastor Appreciate Month where we celebrate and honor our pastors for what they mean to our families, our churches, and our communities. Take time this month to show your pastor your support, love, and appreciation for his dedication to your church and ministry!
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:3-6
Have a great weekend!
