NOVEMBER 2, 2023
Each year, the month of October is designated Pastor’s Appreciation month. Now that we’re in November, I wanted to say thank you to all of you for being such a great church and for treating our pastors with such love, respect, and confidence. I know that we all try to do our very best to lead you in the most biblical way we can because we all realize the tremendous responsibility that God has given us. We also care about you and everyone in our community who needs Jesus and that drives us to give our best as well. You make it easy by your love for Jesus.
Special thanks goes out to those of you who gave us cards, small but meaningful gifts, or just said something that encouraged us this past month. These all mean so much and they fuel us with high-octane encouragement.
I know I speak for all the pastors when I say that the greatest gift you can give us is being at church each week, eager to worship God, hungry to learn from the Bible, and excited to see others who can encourage you in your walk with God. We need each other, especially as the Day of the Lord draws near (Hebrews 10:23-25). Seeing you here each week is worth more than almost anything else to us. You understand the importance of being together with others each week.
So thanks for being a great part of Lakeshore and for the gift of seeing you each week, and thanks for all you do to make Lakeshore a great place for us all.
Vince (for all the Pastors at Lakeshore)
