October is Pastor Appreciation Month, and we are grateful for pastors' service to our community. On October 17, CCS hosted a Pastor Appreciation Luncheon. Fifty-three pastors from 32 churches, representing approximately 343 CCS students were in attendance. CCS families represent approximately 117 churches in the community, and students had the opportunity to invite their pastors to attend this event.
Our guest pastors were greeted by the CCS students who invited them, and they enjoyed a short time visiting together. Following a quick photo with students, the pastors were ushered into the East Gym Lobby for a meal and a message from Executive Director, Dr. Jeff Potts. We have received numerous comments from pastors concerning how much they enjoyed the event. One pastor, in particular, commented on how good it was to be in the room with other pastors who they would not normally be able to spend time with. It was a privilege to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the service of the Lord through serving their churches and our community. Thank you, pastors, for all you do!
