Letter to Church Family Moving Away (Sample)

The Letter to Church Family Moving Away (Sample) is available free to download, customize and print for your church administrative office, Human Resources Dept., Etc. 



This sample letter can be used as a tool to create a letter from your church to a church member or family who is moving away to another area.



When a church member and/or their family is moving away from your church you just don't know what to say just anything and it's hard not to say the wrong thing and offend someone or make them feel guilty for leaving their church, especially if they have been there a long time.

Many times when we don't know what to say we just don't write the letter or note that we wanted to send and eventually we do not say anything. The intention to write is there but it's obvious that knowing what to say is not easy.

The sample letter below for a church family that is moving away can be used as a tool to customize a letter for your church or organization for someone in your church that is fixing to make this move. This sample letter includes:

[Church Letterhead or Name of Church & Address]

 

[Date]


[Recipient Name & Address]


Dear [Recipient Name] :

I greet you in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I was saddened when I was informed recently that you and your precious family will be moving away from the area, and will no longer be able to attend [Church Name]. It has been a pure joy having you and your family as part of our church family here at [Church Name].

Let me be the first one to say that you and your family will be sorely missed by not just me but the entire congregation/church family here. I believe I can speak for everyone here when I say there is not one person that you and your family has not touched in a very loving way. However, I trust that God will go before you and your family and will richly bless you as you embark upon this new chapter in your lives.

Isaiah 45:2a states: “I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight.

With Love,

[Signature]

Visitor Testimonials

*Terressa! I received the discs today!! A few years back I was at a small church that used your software and it was perfect for their volunteers to use. The church I am at now has 2 volunteer secretaries and one found your product and I gushed!!! Her first request is a directory so this will be perfect. God Bless you for creating such a great system (Shepherdbase). Regards - Tonya - OK - U.S.
*Disclaimer
*This is the 1st time I've visited your website and I just wanted to say "thank you". I go to a very small Christian Church and thanks to you, the forms you have for a children's ministry will keep me from having to "reinvent the wheel" and I am very grateful to you. We are a very small church (about 40 regular attendees) and 90% of those are over 65. We just had a young couple offer to help us get a Youth Group. Thanks to you, we won't have to do to much to get this off and running for the holiday season. Thanks again! - Kentucky - U.S.
*Disclaimer
*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer
  • 7. So much more.

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
