All Church Letters:
Happy New Year 2014 - Rebuild Theme
12-23-2013

I wanted to take a moment on behalf of the leadership here at (NAME OF CHURCH) to wish you and yours a Happy New Year! We are just coming out of the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, and have taken time out of our schedules to express our thanks to God for His bountiful blessings, as well as the precious gift of His Son Jesus. I think this is always a tremendous time to reflect on His blessings, yet look ahead to the many great things God has in store for His people in the year ahead.

Happy New Year 2014 - Will of God Theme
12-23-2013

I don't know about you, but I often use this time to reflect and learn from my past, and then do all I can to move ahead without making the same mistakes again... and I do make plenty! Yet, in all of our dreams and plans for tomorrow, we must remember and depend upon the Will of God. Those of us who know Christ as our Savior are ever mindful of the need to please Him. Not only will He be pleased but we will find that our lives are more complete and fulfilled than ever before.

Happy New Year 2014 - Forgetting The Past Theme
12-23-2013

It's time for new beginnings! It's time for a fresh start! It's time to make some resolutions! These are often statements that are made by most people at the beginning of a new year, and we as Christians are not really all that different! Who wants to remain the same as before? I know I don't, because I want to continue to grow in the Lord, as well as put off some of those things that have held me down for being all He wants me to be.

Happy New Year - First New Year after Loss of Spouse (Death)
12-23-2013

I wanted to take a moment to send you a note to let you know I'm thinking of you as you look forward into the new year ahead. I realize this would be a time for the sharing of new plans, goals and dreams about the future with your (HUSBAND/WIFE), but this is the first year in some time you face the future without them. Death is always a stark reminder that one day we are all going to face the end of our lives, however, it seems there is really never a "proper" time, especially for those we love so much.

Happy New Year - First New Year after Divorce (To Person Hurting)
12-23-2013

I realize those words may ring a bit "hollow" as you face the start of a New Year following your divorce in the past year. It is so easy for others to say "it's time to move on", yet for those who have walked the difficult path of divorce, it really is never that easy as memories cloud our vision of the future. A new year speaks of new beginnings, new dreams and hope for tomorrow. These all may be things that are still on the horizon, but the horizon seems to be covered over with gray clouds.

11-23-2013

That name "Immanuel" simply means "God with us". While I know there is nothing that will replace the physical presence of our loved one, I do know that we have a wonderful God who is with us by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus shared a bit about Who the Holy Spirit would be to us in this day we live in John 16:7 (KJV) 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Church Christmas Letter 2013 - "Lamb of God" Theme
11-22-2013

When we think of the birth of Jesus Christ, it is often easy to associate Him with the term "Lamb of God" because of the things that come to mind when describing a lamb. Meek and lowly, gentle and even somewhat needy would describe a lamb, much as a child born into this world even today. Yet, when these "types" or comparisons take place it is important that we remember the full meaning.

Church Christmas Letter 2013 - "To Seek and To Save" Theme
11-22-2013

We see also the change of hearts as people put their faith and trust in Christ such as a tax collector by the name of Zacchaeus: Luke 19:9-10 (NIV) 9 Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." Within the trappings and distractions that the Christmas season offers, may we never forget one of the primary purposes of Jesus' coming to earth, and it was "to seek and to save what was lost."

Church Christmas Letter 2013 - "Cradle, Cross and Crown" Theme
11-22-2013

What a wonderful time of year it is as once again we pause and remember the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know the word "pause" might seem like an odd one to use during this time of year when everything about the season seems to be so chaotic. Yet, I believe it is important for us to "pause on purpose" if we really want to have a meaningful Christmas season. We know that Jesus Christ came to this earth with purpose, and the primary purpose was to "seek and to save the lost" as we read about in Luke 9:10; "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

Church Christmas Letter 2013 - Special Christmas Offering
11-22-2013

Christmas is a wonderful time of year in which we give and receive gifts all in celebration and honor of our Savior, Jesus Christ, whose birthday we celebrate. Yet, I am often puzzled at our joy in sharing, giving, and receiving of these gifts with so many others, when in actuality we should think of Christ not only primarily, but first! (After all, how many Birthday parties have you gone to where the guests exchanged gifts, and the one having the Birthday received nothing?)

Thank You Letter to Volunteer Choir Director 2013 - Christmas Musical
11-22-2013

Without hard work, and hours of practice and of course preparation before the practice this would not have been the success as it was, and continues to be as people share such kind words throughout the church and even our community. While it is never "easy" to spend those hours of practice and preparation for what seems to be a few "minutes" of presentation, you can rest assured it is worth it, both for the Choir and those who gather to listen.

Letter to Church - Love Offering for Philippines Disaster Relief
11-21-2013

As many of you know, the Phllippines recently suffered with a tremendous disaster called Typhoon Haiyan in which many lives were lost, and massive destruction took place as the wind and rain wreaked havoc upon homes, businesses and property. You have seen many of the pictures of the destruction like I have, and know the repairs and reconstruction will take place for years to come.

Fundraising Letter for Major Church Expansion
11-21-2013

As you know, with the increase of people coming to (NAME OF CHURCH), it has become more of a challenge to accomodate not only the needs of our present adherents, but knowing more will be coming I believe we must be ready before they arrive! With this in mind, we will be sharing the need with you more concerning possible building plans to accomodate the growth. Again, we must not only be equipped to care for our present needs, but the children, youth and adults who will be coming in the future.

Letter to Church Family who Lost Everything in Fire
11-21-2013

I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to lose many of the precious things to you, especially those irreplacable items such as pictures and other family items. We often don't realize how special those things really are until we no longer have them in our possession.

Letter to Member of Military at Christmas
11-21-2013

I know it's difficult being away from family and friends during the Holidays, but without people like you paying the price for freedom, it's almost unimaginable what our Nation would look like and even "if" we would be able to celebrate Holidays...especially Christmas!

Christmas Letter to Homebound 2013
11-21-2013

On behalf of the congregation and leadership here at (NAME OF CHURCH), I wanted to be sure to take a moment to send a note to let you know how much you are appreciated during this Christmas Season. I know that so many of those who are unable to get out to church would love to be able to do so, yet, in the quiet of your residence you spend time in prayer for the church as we gather together from week to week.

Thank You to Children's Ministry Director/Pastor for Christmas Program
11-21-2013

I believe in the tremendous value of our children. I have known of whole families that have started to make church a weekly habit because of the desire of a child, or children in that family wanting to do so. Also, the faith of a little child is amazing as they haven't come to Jesus with a series of excuses of why God "can't" keep His promises!

Thanksgiving Letter 2013 - Give Thanks In Everything
10-26-2013

I wanted to take this opportunity to send a letter to you, as well as all of our church congregation during this wonderful season of Thanksgiving. I'm of the firm belief that we are to be a people filled with thanks to God who has blessed us in so many ways. The following scripture even tells us that if we are seeking to know the will of God for our lives, "giving thanks" is definitely one of the areas He is pleased with!

Thanksgiving Service Invitation - 2013
10-26-2013

It is quite clear that to have a "thankful spirit" does not exactly come naturally just because we are born into the human race. If you have children, you have been confronted with the challenge of instilling within them the words "thank you". How often have we said after our child received a gift; "now what do you say"?

Letter for Celebration of Church Anniversary
10-26-2013

As we look back over the years, we must take pause and be thankful to the Lord who has blessed us with His presence year in, and year out. No, the road hasn't always been easy, but I know you would agree with me that the good times far outnumber the difficult times!

Thank You to Family for Pastor Appreciation Gift
10-24-2013

The words "thank you" seem to be so limited in my expression of appreciation to you, yet I really don't know what else to say as you have blessed my life so profoundly during this recent Pastor's Appreciation Recognition.

Thanksgiving Letter to Congregation 2013
10-24-2013

I have found that if we are truly to be worshippers in the way God intends us to be, we must be thankful on a daily basis, and not just one day a year with a brief prayer before an amazing meal, and a few football games and a nap! (Not necessarily in that order).

Appeal for Missions Giving - Faith Promises
10-24-2013

One of the great things that is happening in our world today is the explosion of the Gospel being shared around the world in so many ways. With the expansion of the internet, the message of Christ continues to seep into nations that were once closed off.

Want to Make Your Pastor's Day? (Great Article for Pastor Appreciation Day)
10-10-2013

Here are nine quick ways to show your appreciation throughout the entire year… not just Pastor’s Appreciation Day! 1. Write a note telling the pastor how good a particular sermon was. 2. Invite others to church. Nothing says, “The pastor is doing a great job” louder than asking your friends and business acquaintances to visit. Be sure to introduce them to the pastor after the service.

Letter to Employer from Pastor on Behalf of Church Member for Sunday Worship
10-07-2013

One of the central issues of this faith is to be in a place of worship such as church as frequently as possible. This helps a person greatly in accountability to God and others, as well as worship and instruction in living out their faith. This includes moral teachings of honesty, integrity, and good character, which in turn is helpful in any place of employment.

Pastors Appreciation Service Invitation Letter
09-10-2013

There are not enough words to describe how precious pastors are. God has given us pastors to see to it that we are taken care of spiritually. God has entrusted each pastor to his/her own flock and I have to say it is such a privilege to be under Pastor ________ care.

Request for Cards/Letters for "Pastors Appreciation Book"
09-08-2013

The Bible says in Proverbs 25:11 "A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." Just as a word "spoken" is a beautiful thing, so too is a word fitly "written". Often, we take for granted those in leadership who hear a variety of comments on a weekly basis.

Appeal for Ministry Volunteers - Fall Emphasis
08-20-2013

This letter is being sent to everyone in the congregation with the intent of sharing the message of getting involved in ministry in some way if you aren't already! We have a variety of opportunities available and recognize everyone may not have the same interest in serving, but that simply means that more needs will be met as each one of us finds and serves in that purpose God has for us. Someone once related serving God and others to volleyball or tennis in this way... "as long as you are serving, you cannot lose"!

We Have Missed You at Church Letter
08-20-2013

While there are several avenues to receive the Word of God in our lives such as television, internet, radio, and more, there really is nothing quite as effective as being part of a church on a regular basis. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:25 (NIV) 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Back To School Letter from Pastor to High School Students
08-20-2013

Well, as I write those words, I know some are filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation of all the new school year holds, and others are not nearly as thrilled as they see the challenges ahead. I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to take advantage of every learning possibility presented to you in the days, weeks and months ahead. From my own personal experience, I can assure you that while the years of education seem to move slowly, you will look back one day and realize the time went much faster than you dreamed possible.

Letter to Sports Schedulers and Coaches to Consider Sunday Worship Time
08-07-2013

This letter is simply a request to consider the importance and tremendous value of the Sunday worship schedule of churches. Families should be allowed to be in God's house without concern or fear that being late, or missing a game on a Sunday will lead to "discipline" or decreased playing time.

Interest Expressed in Baptism - Need to Take New Believer Class
08-07-2013

Water baptism is a wonderful and meaningful outward symbol to the world and other believers of your unashamed passion and commitment to follow Jesus Christ as His disciple. Water baptism also gives the believer the opportunity to openly testify to others of his born-again experience.

Sharing the Value of Faithful Church Attendance
08-07-2013

I wanted to take a moment to send this letter to share the tremendous value and importance of making church attendance a vital part of your walk with the Lord. The Psalmist shared some beautiful words about this in Psalms 84:10 "Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked."

Sharing the Need for People to Serve in the Church
07-11-2013

There’s a truth in volleyball that should apply to life… as long as you are serving, you cannot lose”. Serving others is without a doubt a denial of self, and putting the needs of others before our own needs. While I realize many of those who receive this letter are already actively serving within the church, there may be others who have yet to find that place of service where they both be a blessing, AND be blessed as well!

Letter Encouraging People to Volunteer to Serve (Fall Emphasis)

This note is primarily for those who attend this church, and consider it to be your home church, and you are still looking for that "sweet spot" where you will experience tremendous fulfillment and joy as you serve.

Letter to Welcome New Movers into Area
06-05-2013

One of the great struggles in moving at times is that sense of "aloneness" that goes along with it. While some may appreciate that, most of us have a "built in" awareness of our need for fellowship and friendship with others. One of the best places to discover this is in the local church, and we believe you will enjoy getting to know the people who attend (NAME OF CHURCH)!

Letter of Good-Bye To Family Moving Away
06-05-2013

It has been a joy and a privilege to have you and your family worship with us for the past ______ years. Of course, one of the most difficult aspects of moving away is to say good-bye to so many friends you have made, and of course saying good-bye to your church family as well. One of the most wonderful aspects of being part of a local church are the close relationships formed from being involved in worship and ministry activities together, and just "doing life" with brothers and sisters in Christ.

Visitor Follow Up to Visiting Fathers on Father's Day
06-05-2013

I wanted to take this opportunity to send you a note to let you know it was a privilege to have you as our guest here at NAME OF CHURCH this past Sunday morning for our Father's Day Service. I trust you were warmly welcomed and made to feel "at home" as much as possible! We have a wonderful church with some great men who love God, and are simply doing their best to please Him in all they say and do. Yet, I will be the first to tell you that there is not one man who attends here, including myself, that doesn't feel inadequate at times in so many areas of life.

Summer Stewardship Letter 2013
05-29-2013

While vacations are enjoyed by so many of our church family, and rightfully so I might add, the ministries of the church continue to move forward as lives are changed, marriages healed, and God is glorified through it all. Stewardship of the resources God places in our hands extends so much further than even finances as prayers are also needed for our various ministries, including the general overall health of our church body.

Letter of Invitation to "I Love My Church Sunday"
05-29-2013

Well, we are going to give you an opportunity to not only say it, but also experience a special Sunday devoted to that simple thought! I want to extend an invitation to you and your family to attend "I Love My Church Sunday" on Sunday September 8th here at (NAME OF CHURCH) at (TIME OF SERVICE). I've often talked with preachers and yes, folks in the congregation and openly "dreamed" about a day in which everyone who calls the church their home church would attend. Often the comment that comes following that is "where would we put them all?"

Visitor follow up letter for family visiting church
05-29-2013

I also wanted to see if there are any questions that you may have for me or any of the other leaders within our church. While we are far from the "perfect church", I do believe that as we endeavor to live our lives for the glory of God we will become what he intends us to be so that we can powerfully impact our community with the message of Christ.

Father's Day Invitation to Church 2013
05-29-2013

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your family to our services on Father's Day 2013 here at the church. One of the most powerful statements a Father can make is to attend church with his family. It speaks volumes to the next generation coming behind us, and goes a long way to develop the thought of attending church in the minds of our young people who will eventually will grow up to be leaders in their own homes.

Farewell Letter from Pastor (New Appointment)
05-24-2013

What an absolute joy it has been as we have broken bread together, both in the material and spiritual sense. Also, we have known great victories, and yes, even a few heartaches along the way, but those times have simply helped to magnify the joyful times so much more! Rest assured, you will be in my thoughts and prayers as we move on from here.

A Special Tribute to Mothers
05-10-2013

The only way we can teach something is to know it first of all ourselves, as well as live it out in practice at every opportunity until it becomes not only "what we do", but "who we are". In other words, it becomes part of our character the more we do it. This applies to good things, as well as things that aren't traits we would like to have our children emulate. Fearing, or honoring the Lord is often not something that simply comes naturally to a child, but they are taught this by mentors such as teachers, adults, and of course, parents.

Thank You for Attending Mother's Day Church Service
05-02-2013

We trust you found the services to be both enjoyable and inspirational as we took time to celebrate the importance and high value of Motherhood, especially in this day and age we live. While the challenges of bringing up a God-fearing family in this day and age are tremendous, I believe with all my heart that we serve a Savior who is more than "up to the task" to help and assist as we cry out to Him for His blessing.

What a wonderful time of the year to gather together to celebrate the joys of Motherhood, as well as to spend some quality time with your daughter!

This year we are honored and privileged to have (NAME OF SPEAKER) ministering to us!

There is an area at the bottom of the card to indicate the church they presently attend or wish to attend, and your church is indicated on the enclosed card(s), so we wanted to be sure to send the card to you for any follow up you deem necessary. We will not be following up with them through our church since they have expressed interest, or are already faithful to attend your church.

Stewardship Letter to Summer Attendees to be Faithful in Giving Year Round
04-11-2013

In the past, you have been generous in your giving to the work of the church here in our community, and for that, we are grateful and appreciative. However, we are requesting that you would consider a special faith gift at this time, as well as some measure of monthly support even when you are not in the area. I realize there are plenty of needs "out there", yet I know this church and it's mission are in your heart because you have given previously. If you're like me, you give to needs and projects that minister to you personally and are having a positive impact on people.

Stewardship Letter to Regular Givers - Special Appeal to Give
04-11-2013

We have a great heritage and track record of reaching out to those in need in our community, however our ability to do so is becoming an increasing challenge due to financial constraints. I know we have been in challenging economic times, yet I would like to encourage each one of our members and attendees to remain faithful in giving to this local church which in turn will enable us to do many of the things God has called us to do.

Letter to Young Adults Encouraging Them To Give of Tithes and Offerings
04-11-2013

I want to share this word with the younger generation of our church... If you have not yet begun to share in this amazing privilege of giving of time, talent, and treasure, please giver prayerful consideration to what God would have you do. I encourage you to band together as a new generation of people who are generous in so many ways, especially when it comes to the church. Personally, I can't think of anything more worthy of our generous giving.

Letter Encouraging People to Invite Friends to Easter Service 2013
03-06-2013

As we move rapidly towards another Easter Sunday, or as some would call it...Resurrection Sunday, I want to take a moment to encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors out to church with you. Often, special days such as Easter, Christmas, and others are great times to give the invitation, and it's also a time people tend to be more responsive as well. Often, childhood memories of these times help them to think of some wonderful days from years ago, or, many people find themselves in more of a reflective and spiritual time due to so many messages regarding the special season around them.

Yet, I want to encourage you to take time to think on the good things, and to draw upon those good memories to encourage you in this day. Also, take time to realize as well that we are not "home" yet! There's another old song by the title of "It Will Be Worth It All", and let's us know that all the trials we have faced in this world will fade off in the distance as we catch a glimpse of the face of our Savior for the first time in Heaven.

Letter Sharing Ministerial Reappointment
02-25-2013

I wanted to take this time to send you this letter to share with you concerning upcoming events in the life of our church, as well as my own ministry. Recently, I was informed that I will be reappointed to a new church this Summer. I realize this might come as somewhat of a surprise to you, but please know that it was also something I did not expect either at this time.

Letter of Appeal for Team Members to Honor Team Leader w/Gift
02-21-2013

This has been (and will continue to be) a lot of work for all of us, yet I'm reminded of the old saying "many hands make light work". Well, to take that a step further, especially as it applies to the Gospel, we can also say that "many hands make LIGHT work" as in the Light of the Gospel! Just think... God has the power to do the work by Himself, but He chose willing vessels such as us to work alongside Him.

Encouragement to Continue to Share The Gospel

Encouragement to Put God First in Life - God Will Provide
02-12-2013

Dear In a world of mixed up priorities, it is so important to make frequent "trips" to the Word of God so that we can once again be reminded of the vital importance of allowing God first place in our lives. When we study Matthew Chapter 6, we see that the Lord was talking about material needs which they had then, and we have now. Needs for things such as food and clothing, and of course there are other needs as well such as shelter and love, and more, yet the principle of Matthew 6 is to show that God is a providing God.

Sharing the Importance and Value of Attending a Local Church
02-12-2013

I am sometimes asked a question which might go like this: "Why do you insist that I need to attend a local church when I get tremendous enjoyment in attending a different church often?" We live in a day which offers the message of the Gospel to the Sinner, and inspiration to the Christian in a vast variety of ways such as the internet, radio, television, cd's, MP3 files, and on and on it goes!

Jesus was clearly saying here that our love towards one another as the family of God should not be dicated by "feelings" because you cannot give a commandment to feel a certain way. Yet, this love He wants us to have is a choice that we make in our hearts to love one another even as He loved us!

Whether you have been married for a few years, or find yourselves in the "silver" or "golden" category, rest assured, marriage is not only a good idea, but it's God's idea! I don't have to convince you of this, but anything worthwhile in this world having in our lives is going to take effort.

I truly believe the best way for a church to be funded is through the giving of it's people, yet, we are living in a day when it seems there are so many other attempts (feeble, I might add) to take care of the needs of the church, as well as the missions the church supports.

Once again, the Christmas season is upon us, and I wanted to take a moment to send this letter of encouragement to you as we once again celebrate the Birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We live in a world that is increasingly either hostile or apathetic to the message of His birth. It seems at every turn we hear about a company or business that has decided to make this simply another "holiday", instead of the Christmas season it really is. Yet, are we to be surprised about this? I don't think so.

Special Thanksgiving Service Invitation

During the service, we will take time to reflect back on the many blessings of God upon our lives in so many ways. Someone has said that Thanksgiving is first "thanks", then "giving".

This is a topic most ministers prefer to avoid when it comes to how much is fair when considering the time and service he/she offers when it's time to unite a couple in marriage. However, when one looks at the overall expenses and activities associated with a wedding and reception, the cost or fee paid to a minister is an extremely small amount compared to the amounts paid for flowers, photographer, videographer, wedding coordinator, clothing rentals/purchases, reception dinners, DJ's, etc.!

Encouragement Letter To Trust God and Not Be Bitter

We sin when we express anger wrongly, and especially when we hold on to it for dear life. We think it might be for dear life, but it’s something that will slowly eat away at our joy and peace if we allow it to simmer and turn into bitterness. The Bible even tells us to “not let the sun go down on our wrath”. In other words, in our relationships we really care deeply about, it is important to settle matters either together or in our hearts before going to sleep at night.
