Church Announcement: October Is The Month To Celebrate Pastor With Your Best Tithe Gift!
Reader's the 2nd Sunday in October has been dubbed pastor or clergy appreciation day with the entire month of October being celebrated as praise month. There are a huge number of people serving as clergy in the United States and a number of million people identify themselves as attendees of a Christian Church. While Christians make up nearly a third of the estimated global population of billions, how many of those Christians take the time to thank and appreciate their clergy?
Clergy Appreciation Month, established in 1992, was developed with the mission of uplifting and encouraging pastors, missionaries and religious workers who work so tirelessly in this field of work. Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13:
“And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!” – The Message Bible
