Volunteer Appreciation Mugs

Volunteer Appreciation Mugs

The 2013 National Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 21-27 and it’s a perfect time to show your team how great they really are!  I have to tell you, I have an amazing Children’s Ministry team — they work hard, have fun, and are always coming up with great ideas.    That’s why I try hard to make sure they know how grateful I am to have them around.  Here’s one project I recently completed to thank the team for their excellent service.

Memory Verse Mugs

What You Do:

I decided to write each team member’s favorite verse on the mug, so first I needed a super secret way to acquire his information.  I sent around an email about a month before I started working on the mugs, asking for everyone’s favorite verse for a “special project” for our Wednesday night program.  I’m not sure if this was actually a lie or not.  🙂

Once I secured everyone’s verse, I got to work writing them out on mug.  I wasn’t crazy about the tips on the paint markers, to I gave the Sharpie Permanent Markers, Fine Point a try, but I have since heard that these did indeed wash off after about 10 washes so I wouldn’t recommend it.

The paint markers took a little while to dry, which was nice for me because I could wipe off the mug and start again if I didn’t like how it turned out.  After the writing was done, I put all the mugs on a cookie sheet and put them in a COLD oven.

Turn the oven on to 400 and then turn it off in about 30 minutes.  Leave the mugs in the over until completely cool again.



Just FYI, I wrote the verse on the front of the mug and the Scripture reference on the back.  Then, I filled the mugs with some little candies and chocolates and passed with them.

I’ve heard good things, so I hope everyone liked them!
