Plant a Garden Gift Basket

By Linda Cramer

October is officially Pastor Appreciation Month. Most people don’t realize it. It is a great chance for the congregation to pause and let their pastor know that they are valued and appreciated. While no pastor is perfect I think we can all agree it is a tough, wonderful, difficult, and rewarding job. Hours are never ending and as soon as you take on that calling someone will almost always be disappointed with you. But words or acts of encouragement can go a long way. So why not do something wonderful and special for your pastor and better yet for your pastor’s spouse as well?

A thank you gift basket can be created in many ways. Ask different groups in the church to help out. Place a huge basket in a hidden spot and have members fill the basket with coffees, teas, cookies, muffins, books, really the list is endless. A gift certificate for a night away is an often wonderful treat for a pastor and their spouse. Have the kids color thank you pictures. The kids could even create their own thank you gift basket. And if you are worried about perishable items and want to really surprise your pastor order a beautiful personalized thank you gift basket. They can be filled with all sorts of wonderful non-perishable items. Nothing is more memorable than a unique gift. Order personalized items or messages that are designed just for your pastor. You can order a basket personalized with your pastors favorite verse. You can even have a frame with a message from your church congregation placed on it. The possibilities are endless. No matter how you decide to create it, make sure you take the time to bless this special person for the role they serve.

A thank you gift basket can be from a family or an entire church body. The important thing is that you do something to let your pastor know that the role they serve makes a huge difference in your and others lives. So get started……….the blessings will be overwhelming and it can be a barrel of fun too.
