Commit-MINT to Church (Minister Appreciation Gift)

Did you know that October is the month for Pastor/Minister Appreciation?

minister appreciation month gift, pastor gift idea

We have 2 great ministers at our church (and 4 lousy ones. LOL. TOTAL JOKE, we only have 2 ministers in all).

To kick off the month, I wanted to do a little something for them, so I came up with this

clever gift for pastors, minister appreciation month ideas, preacher appreciation, York peppermint, lifesavers, andes, pastor appreciation, affordable pastor gift, volunteer gift, gift basket, dollar tree storage tub.


and delivered it to the church office.  The green Dollar Tree container is filled with gum, York peppermint patties, Andes mints, dinner mints, lifesaver mints and Junior Mints.  Total cost was right at $10.

We love our pastors!

Do you or your church do anything for your ministerial staff this month?  Chime in down in the comments!

  2. I had no idea that October was Pastor/Minister Appreciation month. That is such a great idea. The kids usually participate in children's programs but not sure what they're doing this month.

  4. What a fun way to honor your pastor. I can see this working for many different people too (commit-mint to your students, to your patients, to your children, etc).

    1. Absolutely! You can adapt this for a lot of different appreciation gifts. :)

  5. Oh how super neat! Your joke totally cracked me up, hahahaha. I love our pastor in our little small-town church but I had no idea it was minister appreciation month! The Good News Club did celebrate his birthday a week or two ago though, and I think he had fun at that :)

  6. This is a sweet idea! I loved your joke as well! I know prior churches we were at we went together on gifts that were specific to the pastor's lifestyles and needs. It was neat to have the gifts so original.

    1. Hi Carolyn! I don't think I still have the file this was in but I made the tag using picmonkey (a free, easy to use site). I think you could recreate it there pretty easily. Let me know if you have more questions and thanks for coming by. :)

    4. I have never used PicMonkey and just tried to make something like that. I cannot seem to just create it, it wants to open it somewhere on my computer and move it into there. Hmmm. Can you tell me how you created it?

    5. Hi Tina! Yes, so I made it in PicMonkey. Once you are done with all your font/etc you click "Save" in picmonkey and it will save it to your computer as a picture. That's what I did. Then I just opened up a Word document and did "insert picture" and stuck the PicMonkey image in there.
      Let me know if you have any more questions. :)
