Pastor Appreciation Month

23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. (Hebrews 10:23-24)

The Church Life Team looks forward to seeing each of you either in Roanoke Rapids or in Rocky Mount for a meal and fellowship. Hopefully we can divide the problems and multiply the blessings as we meet and encourage one another. We look forward to seeing you.

We had a wonderful time of fellowship last Oct. 10th & 14th . Our goal is to encourage one another while we dine together as brothers in Christ. This event is directed as pastors. We want to support our pastors and help to provide a safe environment at which we can pray for one another and love on one another as Christ has directed. John 15:12 tells us to "love one another as I have loved you."

Being in the ministry almost 60 years, I have found discouragement is a real emotion that we as pastors face continually. Ministers feel in competition with each other. I have found an occasional phone call and prayer is very helpful when a pastor comes to mind. Having an occasional lunch together is very meaningful and shows that we care. When I get discouraged, John Hamm always has the right uplifting words. Let's make an effort to encourage one another.
