October is officially National Pastor Appreciation Month, originally created by Under His Wings Ministry, Inc.,. in 1992. The mission of this non-profit organization is to uplift and encourage pastors, missionaries and other religious workers. It is celebrated any time during the month of October, but the official Day is the second Sunday in October. There are approximately 350,000 Senior Pastors in the United States and over a million Professional Church Workers. St. Paul Lutheran Church honored its two pastors on October 19, 2014, with a delicious brunch in the Fellowship Hall. Shown in the picture are Rev. Scott Stallings, Visitation Pastor and Rev. Ray Spitzenberger, Pastor. Both Pastor Ray and Pastor Scott express their most heartfelt thanks for this beautiful gesture of love and caring.
