October was Pastor Appreciation Month

Dear Pastor David,

Giving to others seems to come so naturally to you, but I know it doesn’t happen by accident. You go the extra mile, take the extra time, give the extra thought….and it really makes a difference. Thank you for being such a wonderful example of God’s love.

The greatest gift you could ever give Pastor David is the gift of prayer. Please consider the prayer guidelines in our monthly  GRACE MESSENGER  (click in blue) in giving Pastor David the only gift he truly desires for Pastor Appreciation Month.
