Preaching Sabbath

Preaching Sabbath is a SKMB resource which provides the church an opportunity to grant their pastor a rest from preaching to focus on spiritual renewal, visioning, training, professional development, planning, counseling, etc.  The SKMB Director of Ministry will serve the church by preaching four consecutive Sunday sermons on one of the following themes or biblical sources:

·      Unwrapping John 1:14 (Advent Series)

·      Uniqueness of Christ

·      Sermon On The Mount

·      What Jesus Said About...

·      Parables of Jesus

·      Colossians

·      Rediscovering Worship

·      Hebrews

·      Psalms or Proverbs

·      Quest For Identity

·      Quest For Godliness

·      From Mission-Minded to Missional

·      What Did Jesus Do?

·      Selected Texts

FAQs 

What is the cost of a Preaching Sabbath? 

There is no cost, however, if a church can contribute $500 to help defer travel expenses that would be welcomed.
