Bless our Pastors

Bless our Pastors

A letter from the Hayward Wesleyan Church Board:

October 25, 2020

As you know, these are very challenging times. But we are grateful that the Lord has given us a wonderful pastoral staff that works hard to serve our congregation well. 

The Apostle Paul instructs us in 1 Thessalonians 5:12 to “Make sure that you show your deep appreciation for those who cherish you and diligently work as ministers among you.” As a church, we want to be especially mindful of these words during this difficult season. In desiring to encourage and appreciate our pastors, we are joining other churches across the country by finding ways to “Bless Our Pastors”.

So, we invite you to join us in prayerfully reading through the list of Over 50 Creative Ways to Bless Your Pastor (attached here).  It is our desire that God will help all of us to share some of our time, talent, treasure and good things God has given us to show our appreciation and care for our pastors and their families.

For those who are willing and able, we would also like to take this opportunity to “Bless our Pastors” with a special offering. If this is something you would like to do, feel free to use the link below to give electronically. Or, you can mail a check to Hayward Wesleyan Church, P.O. Box 507, Hayward, WI  54843 (please designate for “Pastor Appreciation” or “Bless our Pastors”). There are also envelopes available at church if you would like to put a gift in the Sunday offering or drop it off during the week.  

Just a reminder that any monetary gifts given will be split evenly among our pastors. If you choose to give to a specific pastor(s), you may do that directly.

We love you and are grateful that you are part of our church family. We look forward to how God is going to work in all of our lives as we continue to grow in our generosity and joy in giving.

Sincerely,
Hayward Wesleyan Church Board
