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.

pastor appreciation month, pastor appreciation gift, minister appreciation month, commitMINT gift, candy gift for pastors, $10 gift for pastors

We love our pastors!

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