If you love movies, you don’t want to miss our next sermon series, beginning June 19! For five weeks, we’ll unpack Biblical truths from some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. You can enjoy popcorn and movie clips while we dig into God’s Word for direction on challenging topics. Invite a friend and join us for this one-of-a kind experience!
We also want to encourage you to use this as an opportunity to get to know your neighbors. Host a movie night the week before each message to watch the film we’ll be referencing at church. Then, invite them back to The Sanctuary for that week’s message! Here’s the line-up:
June 19: Pursuit of Happyness
June 26: The Martian
July 3: Inside Out
July 10: The War Room
July 17: McFarland USA
GO GROUPS MEETING
As we wrap up our “Sent” series the next couple weeks, we want to start to ask ourselves what it means to be “sent” right where we are living. What could that look like in practical terms? What are the next steps in living a “sent” life? These are some of the topics that will be covered at a “Go Groups” info meeting on Sunday. Sign up on the member website calendar if you would like to attend the meeting, which will include lunch. The meeting will begin at 12:30 in the Community Room.
On June 26, July 3 and July 24 you are invited to gather at one of our local schools in the neighborhood for prayer. Before heading out, we will meet in the Green Room at 12:30 p.m. to share refreshments, and to learn about what prayer is and how God uses it. It is not only going to be an amazing opportunity to be active in the community, but is also a way to create spiritual memories for your entire family.
SUMMER YOUTH CAMP
Whether you love photography, writing, music, art, design, cooking or working behind the scenes, you don’t want to miss “Discover,” a summer camp just for junior high and high school students at The Sanctuary!

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
Ladies, please plan on attending a summer weekly Bible Study, where a new topic will be discussed each week.

Some of the most noted, celebrated and godly men in the Bible made some very big mistakes when it came to raising their children. Bad Dads of the Bible examines these mistakes and gives today’s dads much needed advice on how to avoid them, or repair damage that might already have been done. Between teaching and group discussion, men will tackle this topic together in the next four sessions. Fight Club meets every other Saturday at 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. The next Fight Club is Saturday.
