Pastor Appreciation Month

Children's Ministry Magazine

October is Pastor Appreciation Month, so why not let all the kids in your ministry express their gratitude and appreciation for your pastor?

You'll need colorful paper, markers, paint, paintbrushes, sheet protectors, and a large three-ring binder.

Give each child a piece of paper to create a page. Infants and toddlers can each stamp a foot or handprint, while an adult writes their names and ages on the papers. Encourage preschoolers to draw their favorite things about church and write their names. Give elementary-age kids the writing prompt, "Dear Pastor, thank you for...," and have them include an artistic creation.

Insert kids' pages back-to-back into the page protectors, and then secure them in the binder. Create a cover page with kids' photos and the title, "Our Pastor Appreciation Book." Kids can surprise your pastor with the gift during an adult worship service.
