Pastors in the United Methodist Church are encouraged to take a renewal leave every 7 years. Jason has never taken one in 12 years. The church council and the Harrisburg area district have approved a renewal leave for Jason from August 16 through October 28. We realize that there may be some questions about this. Please feel free to direct your questions to Jason (jschwartzman@susumc.org) or in person before or after a service. We are excited to offer this time of rest and renewal.
