In just over a month in October "Pastor Appreciation Month" will be celebrated nationally as well as here at Bethany. We all can agree that ministry is an amazing call and serving in the role of pastor is even greater. 1 Timothy 5:17 speaks to the idea of clergy appreciation and further suggest how those who work in the role of preaching and teaching should be held in especial esteem for their work and are worthy of a double honor. At Bethany, we are blessed to have the most humble, gracious and faithful spiritual leaders in Bishop David G. Evans and Pastor Nicholas A. Smith. We are asking you, the congregation to think about how these two individuals have blessed your life and give a "love offering" to them on Sunday, October 6th at the 8 and 11am services. When you bless others, God will in turn bless you.
