SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS: THE CHURCH IS RESPONDING
A Message from Nazarene Compassionate Ministries
We have all been shocked by the image of a 3-year-old Syrian boy who washed up on a beach in Turkey. His family was desperately trying to escape the fear of death. The war in Syria is in its 5th year and is only growing worse. This summer, we have watched as hundreds of thousands of people have tried to escape the violence by fleeing to Europe. The crisis in Syria has displaced more than 12 million people. Half of them are children.
PASTOR APPRECIATION SUNDAY
October 11, 2015
Sunday, October 11th is Pastor Appreciation Sunday. It's not too early to plan a special time of appreciation for your pastor or pastors. If you need ideas, we've attached a link that will give you many good ways to say to your leader (s); "we love and appreciate you."
So talk it up among each other. Please don't assume someone else will think to do something. Talk to your board members and come up with something special.
"Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord's work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance." 1 Thess. 5:12
Be a blessing and be blessed !
