“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
That's not a verse we usually pay much attention to is it? Not one of those verses we know by heart and recite from memory... yet what an important verse it is. A reminder to appreciate those who serve our church- the pastors, the Sunday school teachers, the worship leaders... without all of these, where would our churches be? It is for this reason that during the month of October we celebrate Ministry Appreciation Month- a time to give thanks to those who make our churches thrive.
This year, Dayspring wants to help make it easier to give back to all these people in their #ReturntheBlessing campaign. They have compiled ideas to get you started. They also have a variety of free shareable Ministry Appreciation e-Cards perfect for sending, and they encourage you to publicly share and give thanks across social media using the campaign hashtags. You can check those all out here.
I will personally be sharing a little bit about just one part of the ministry team that makes my church so wonderful soon, but in the meantime...how about a giveaway?
Dayspring is giving one lucky person the chance to win $200 shopping spree plus almost $150 worth of inspirational gifts and cards! Amazing, right? This is enough to allow you to bless your entire ministry team for all of their work! Share the stories of your leaders and enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below:
