We have awesome teachers! Many people would be amazed at the amount of time a teacher spends in preparing to teach each week, or the ministry that goes on behind the scenes. We are recognizing our teachers in the Sunday morning services on February 10. Please take this opportunity to share your appreciation with your teacher. It could be a note of appreciation, a plate of cookies, or a gift card to a favorite restaurant. Don’t let these suggestions limit your appreciation. Say “thank you” so our teachers will know that they are appreciated.
