We have never expected our lead pastor to preach 52 weeks a year, for their well-being as well as for ours. Sean will be away periodically for study weeks, vacation and outside speaking engagements. As we have done for 100 years, those weeks he is away the pulpit will be filled by a variety of other staff members, guests and/or special events.
Q: How can I help?
We ask that you continue to pray for guidance in the transition process. Please pray for wisdom and discernment for the Council of Elders, Sean and the church staff as they build new relationships and share together the process of leading the church forward into our second century of ministry and service. And thank God for His ongoing faithfulness and guidance to Saratoga Federated Church.
