Giving Your Pastor and Staff a Christmas Offering
by Rita Hinton
Question regarding different ways to give Pastor and staff a Christmas offering:
In previous years we have passed envelopes out and called it Christmas Cheer for the pastor and staff.
This year we have a new pastor and she does not want envelopes passed out.
Her previous church would give her a Christmas Shower; however, if we do this we still have no gift for the other staff members.
Are there any other innovative ways to get the congregation to provide without the traditional envelope passing?
Okay, I need some of our brothers and sisters in Christ to help us out here. How do you handle Christmas offerings?
We use the traditional envelopes too. So I don’t personally know of any other way to get your congregation to provide a Christmas offering for your pastor and staff.
Dan Sherman of www.my-pator.com may have some good ideas for you. I will forward your question on to him.
Hope this helps.
