Many churches celebrate clergy appreciation Sunday on the second Sunday of October. Here is a way for the children in your church to take part in showing their love for their pastor. This pastor appreciation coloring page is free for you to print and use in your church, home, or school.
Another Free Coloring Sheet
Mandy 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?
Several 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!
