October is Pastor Appreciation Month. Our pastors expect nothing in return for their service. But with all that they do to shepherd us, wouldn’t it be nice to do something for them as well? Consider a personal note, a home-baked treat, a gift card, a commitment to pray for them—or find your own special way to say thank you.
