Another Free Coloring Sheet

Pastor Coloring PageMandy has created a second coloring page that features pastors. This one is part of our “Everyday Heroes” series. It shows a Christian minister baptizing a young woman. This might be a solid second option for clergy appreciation day.

What about female ministers?

Prayer Coloring PageSeveral readers have asked me that question. In such case, you might try this prayer coloring page and have the children write a special “thank you” prayer to God for your ministers. These can be added into one notebook and signed by each child.

This coloring picture would be helpful to remind children of the importance of the church minister. A faithful preacher is a blessing to any church. This resource could accompany a Sunday School lesson about pastor appreciation.

“Appreciation Bomb” Idea

At my church, I had the children secretly color these pages and add their names. Older kids even wrote a personal note for the pastor. Then we took the whole group into his office while he was preaching in big church to redecorate with these pages. He later discovered all this encouragement taped up in his study. Too bad I didn’t have a secret camera!

If you enjoy this material, be sure to browse all our Sunday School coloring pages. We have a “Do Not Fear” you can use as a Halloween Coloring page to encourage kids toward faith rather than fear.

    Thank you f so much or this website and idea. Before I checked out this website, I was just thinking and wondering when we can and should have one day to appreciated our pastor for his servant heart and serves us every weeks. Actually in Cambodia, we never have this appreciation event at all, so this really is helpful to us.
    I definitely will use this coloring page and idea for my Sunday School kid to appreciate our pastor this week!

    Best regards,

    Love the website. I’ve printed these off for the leaders of our Wednesday night program especially for the younger ones. They color them and the leaders talk to them about the pictures.

  5. Logan says

    I use your website for all of my Children’s Church material. I love that you have a coloring page for Pastor’s Appreciation. However, my Pastor is a female. I kow you have that prayer coloring page for female ministers, but I teach my children to Honor our Pastor and I think you should put up a Female Pastor Appreciation coloring page for PAstor’s Appreciation Month.

    Thank You

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Mandy! you have just made life a little simplier for me. coming up with something weekly for the neighborhood kids has been a lot of work for me; I was looking for some one page simple ideas and you helped. I love your pictures & I love the bible alphabets, that gives me lessons to give to my teachers that’s easy to teach. God Bless you!

    Thank you so much for these downloadable sheets! Great for teaching my younger students! Was wondering if you had a color page with female clergy on it? Thank you so much for sharing your many blessings!

    Mandy I really appreciate all your coloring pages. They are modern and timely! I am curious to have females represented as pastors, just like you have boys and girls represented in various drawings. Is there a way you can mirror your pastor drawings to represent a female pastor baptizing a child as well as a female pastor touching a child on the head or greeting kids. There are “still a few of us female” Kids Ministers and it helps to be represented. Thanks!

  13. Arneda Watson says

    Thanks Mandy for reminding me of Pastor’s Appreciation Day.
    We are going to use your coloring pages and have all the children to march in with their colored pages and banners to celebrate pastor.

  14. Peggy Burroughs says

    I want to thank you for the Pastor Appreciation Color Page. It is simple and profound at the same time.

  15. Karin Apfelthaler-Onyango says

    Dear Tony,
    I really like the idea of the pastor to be appreciated by children. My thought was only, that there might also be some areas especially the people who are children pastors, who are women and there is “only” a man on the picture to colour. Could there be also one that shows a woman as children pastor. Are we not all a royal priesthood?

    Thanks for understanding

    Just what I was looking for! Thanks for sharing your talent!
