OCTOBER IS MINISTRY SERVANT APPRECIATION MONTH. Please take some time to acknowledge the fellow believers in our church who regularly serve you and your family. You can write a note of appreciation, take time to tell someone thank you, or give a gift to express your gratitude. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” (1 Thess. 5:11)
