October is Pastor Appreciation Month
Dear Glory of God Church Family,
October is Pastor Appreciation Month and it is fast approaching! Pastor Appreciation Month is a special time that congregations set aside each year to honor their pastor for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings provided by these special people. The nature of the service provided by pastors is unique. God has entrusted to them one of the most precious of assignments — the spiritual well-being of His flock. That's why God has instructed us to recognize His servants.
"The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching" (1 Timothy 5:17).
The good news is that we can make a difference! Pastor Appreciation Month is one way we can counter the negative erosion in the lives of our spiritual leaders with the positive affirmation they need.
It is also important to remember that appreciation, affirmation and prayer support of our spiritual leaders is appropriate throughout the entire year.

Please have contributions in, to the church office, no later than Sunday, October 14th.
You can let the church office know what you are interested in helping with by calling or emailing. If these events are to be successful it is going to take all of us to help.

Thank you and God bless!
