At the end of his fifth year serving as our minister, Rev. Rod Richards will be taking his first Sabbatical from July 1st – September 30th 2017.
The Sabbatical Team has created a plan to assure the smooth functioning of the church during this time.
They will be posting information and updates here to keep everyone informed of the plans and help answer your questions.
Your first resource is HERE – A Guide to Rev. Rod Richards’ Sabbatical. This will answer many of your questions – What is Sabbatical? Who is in charge while the minister is away? What will happen on Sunday morning?
Your Sabbatical Team is available to answer any questions. Watch the News and Notes for details as they emerge, or check back here regularly.
