October is Pastor Appreciation Month!

Wellspring Family and Friends,

October is Pastor Appreciation Month and we would like to take the entire month to honor and pray for our pastors!  Their dedicated service to Christ and to His Kingdom through Wellspring has touched each of us in different ways. 

Pastor Bond, Pastor Bobby, Pastor Tommy and Pastor Fred are faithful servant-leaders who live out Paul’s admonishment to the elders of Ephesus in Acts 20:28 :

“Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which He ordained with His own blood."  

We have been blessed with pastors who lead and care for us according to this mandate. They give of themselves sacrificially; not just on Sunday, but throughout the week in various ways that the majority of us will never get to see. They treat the Word of God with respect and reverence and look after the people of God (that’s us!) with great care and concern. 

For the month of October, we invite you to openly and abundantly encourage our pastors. Let them see and hear just how much you appreciate their leadership. It would be a tremendous blessing for them to receive your words of encouragement, tokens of appreciation, and testimonies of God’s faithfulness to you through them.

As you consider each of our pastors and their wives, we encourage you to share your cards, letters, words of encouragement, monetary gifts and any other gift the Lord may bring to mind. There are cards available at the Pastor Appreciation table across from the Life in the Spring table, as well as a special kid’s page for little ones who wish to express their appreciation. Feel free to take a card or two to write a personalized message. You are also welcomed (and encouraged) to provide your own cards or other expressions of appreciation. You can leave your cards and tokens of appreciation at the table, or you can give them to the pastors directly. 

We also would love for you to join us in praying daily for our elder team this month. Each day for the month of October, we will post a Scripture passage you can read and then pray it over our pastors. 

Finally, each Sunday beginning October 8th, we will highlight a different pastor and his wife. Pastor Appreciation Month is a good reminder to us that our pastors need encouragement and prayer year round. Bless your pastors the way they’ve blessed you! We know how much we appreciate them; now let’s tell them.

Blessings,

Wellspring Church Deaconate Team

Thank you Deaconess Roz and the deacons for organizing us so that we can bless our pastors through prayer and words of encouragement and gifts. Matt and I have been so blessed by Wellspring. It is an honor to celebrate the men and their wives that God has called to lead us.

Amen, Krista!
