10 creative ways to let your wonderful volunteers know you appreciate them!
Your volunteers go above and beyond their calling by faithfully serving — often without anyone ever taking notice. And while “praise from people” certainly isn’t the reason volunteers serve, it’s appropriate and necessary to attend to and thank those who faithfully give of themselves through their personal investment in children’s ministry.
Check out what children’s ministers are doing to tangibly thank their volunteers. And discover creative ways you can end this school year on a positive thank you note.
“We have a plan to show our volunteers all year that they’re appreciated,” says John Wiseman from Neighborhood Church in Redding, California. “In the fall, we present returning teachers with a book about practical ministry to help equip and further train them as they begin the new year. At Christmas, I send a handwritten thank you card with a gift certificate for a pie from an area restaurant. And at the end of the school year, I give them a book to encourage them in their walk with Christ, along with a personal, handwritten note to thank them for their service.”
