Helium Balloon Celebration
by Trish Mingle
Helium Balloons Reach Toward Heaven
Make a list of things to pray for concerning your pastor. such as:
- each child's names separately,
- pastor's spouse,
- things like wisdom,
- traveling mercy,
- good health,
- and financial blessings.
Then place each prayer on a strip of paper and tie it to a helium balloon. Make sure they are helium balloons so they can rise toward the sky when released.
Helium Balloons With Purpose
Gather the congregation outside and give each person a balloon with a prayer tied on it. Each person should read the prayer request attached.
All together, let the balloons go and each person prays for the request tied to their balloon.
The pastor will see how many different prayers are being sent to heaven for him and his family. You might want to make sure your pastor gets a list of each prayer request written for each balloon.
Helium balloons released to show pastor appreciation is a unique way to honor your pastor.
There will most likely be some good natured humor and bantering to make this activity enjoyable and fun.
