Teacher Appreciation

June 2, 2008

Yesterday we had a teacher appreciation luncheon for all of our Sunday school teachers (birth-5th grade). One of the cool things about serving at an established church is that some teachers have taught for a long time. We started a wall of service recognizing those lifetime teachers. We had one lady who has been teaching third grade girls for 43 years, a co-teacher that has been teaching the same class for 35 years and a first grade male teacher who has been teaching for 25 years. We also have a couple that has been holding babies for 33 years straight. Being that I am only 29 years old, it amazes me the long-time dedication, love, and sacrifice that teachers like these make. When they see Jesus in Heaven he will indeed tell them, “well done good and faithful servant.”

If you serve at a church that doesn’t appreciate its teachers publicly on a regular basis, I highly recommend it. It is both a humbling and rewarding time for all involved.
