October is Pastor & Staff Appreciation Month • Although we appreciate our pastors and staff all year long, October is designated as pastor/staff appreciation month by the United Methodist Church. This month is the perfect time to show the staff the love, honor and encouragement they so deserve in special ways. Baskets will be placed in the Connection and Welcome Centers for you to leave cards, letters, notes of appreciation etc. Many of the staff members also love gift cards, chocolate, cookies and donuts!! Let’s be creative and show the staff how much we appreciate what they do for us all year long.
