Pastor Greg’s Sabbatical Leave

Pastor Greg will be on Sabbatical Leave from The Hill, starting with the first Sunday in June, through the last Sunday in August. He will return to the pulpit on Sunday, September 2, 2018.

We are pleased to welcome The Rev. Catherine Miller as Sabbatical Pastor. Rev. Catherine comes to The Hill with a strong background in interim ministry. She is already well-known at HMBC, having preached a number of times for us over the past year. She will begin her “Official” ministry at The Hill on Sunday June 24. For the intervening Sundays, we have three different preachers, all of whom are in the TABCOM ordination process. Each will bring a unique voice and perspective to the pulpit.

We look forward to an exciting and uplifting summer at The Hill, and we wish Pastor Greg a refreshing and productive sabbatical!
