Weekend Vacations Say Get Out of Town


Weekend Getaways for most of us are common. But why not tell your pastor to get out of here - in a nice way of course. "Take A Sunday Off" means a travel focused gift that includes lodging or bed and breakfast getaways.

Vacation Gift - a weekend getaway, was how we often express appreciation to our pastor and family.

Perhaps this mini-vacation could work for your church. The Staff Parish Relations Committee (or some other group of church leaders) could work together to give their pastor a Sunday off as a pastor appreciation gift.

Giving A Sunday Off Is Like A Mini-Sabbatical

This group would ask the pastor to choose the day he/she'll be gone and and then do all of the planning needed to hold the worship celebration that day.

Giving Your Pastor A Sunday Away Seems Simple Enough
