This summer, Rev. Chris will be taking a sabbatical from the ministry at SJR from July 1st until September 30th. Sabbaticals are an opportunity for not just the minister to rest, learn and regroup especially after these last two years, but also a chance for the congregation to explore and experience different gifted preachers from our local area. And so we’re excited to share with you our summer plans. In the past, we’ve joined with local congregations, and while we didn’t do that officially this year, we hope they’ll join us over the summer!
