When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

FATHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS FOR CHURCHES

7 FATHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS FOR CHURCHES

Out of desperation creativity is birthed. I hope to add on to this post through the years. Churches love to give to dad's on Father's Day; sometimes this can be redundant and or expensive.
A few short years ago we stepped out of the Evangelistic & Pioneer work to take a small church that is just great and out of the box. So, of course budget is minimal and I am 'it' when it comes to holiday decor and gifting ideas & doing them.
The 4 gifts that my family and I put together are as follows: 

                    POPCORN/CANDY/MOVIE 
We placed microwave popcorn, candy bar and a special Father's Day poem inside a popcorn bag. 









FRAMED ART FROM LOCAL ARTIST/MINISTER (Rev. Paul Gray)
 MADE THIS INTO A FRAME & ADDED A PEN.




                                     
     MINI GIFTS WRAPPED IN A HANKIE
Pocket knife, Voice of the Martyrs Pendant  & candy!


All wrapped up by my daughter Felecia, and ready to pass out for Father's Day!

       

HOME MADE PIES
Yes, I made several...(gobs) of home made pies. It was a hit and I was exhausted. But, many years ago I delegated the Women's Ministries to help me with it. It was a hit and I was not as wore out. 




This year (2014) my husband mixed the essential oils then the girls and I decorated the bottles for anointing oil for our Father's. Here is a few displayed.

2015-
 This year we purchased the 'Courageous'  Movie for a great price for our dad's. And the theme will be Courageous Manhood. We will add popcorn, candy bar, a coke bottle and place in Oil Changing Pan w/funnel! My husband Pastor Brad Snowden came up with that one!

 [Ignore my table, my 'summer-project,' I am scanning all my photos & putting them on one drive.]



Always place a cartoon drawn
by my father Rev. Paul F. Gray (who
was a Pastor for almost 60 yrs.).
 








Hope this helps and if you have an idea leave one here and even email me or connect with us on face book.

  6. Good ideas. Fathets day is always harder than mothers day. Try 5$ gift card to mcdonalds and small business card with scripture on it.

  7. Can we make copies of the drawing to use at church if we make sure and leave his signature with it? I would love to use it with permission!

    1. Denise; I appreciate you asking. My father would be honored and yes do keep his name on this. He is going to have a book out. I hope within the year with his cartoons. But, I sure love this 'toon'. Hey, I love my dad. :)
