Don’t miss Easter weekend at The Sanctuary! Join us at 7 p.m. Friday for our Good Friday service. We will have a Tenebrae service, an interactive time of worship as we reflect on the day Jesus died to save us from our sins.
Then, celebrate the resurrection of our awesome Savior on Sunday at 9:30 or 11 a.m.! Jesus rose from the grave to give us life! Invite your friends and family as we celebrate the greatest day in history!
We will have childcare for birth to kindergarten tonight. On Sunday, children from birth to fifth grade will enjoy our KidsTown program.
NEW SERMON SERIES: ALIVE!
Life has a way of getting out of control, leaving you exhausted. Whether it’s stress at work, family conflict, a full schedule, or trying to please everyone, you might be feeling defeated in life. It doesn’t have to be that way. Three words spoken 2,000 years ago changed everything: Jesus is ALIVE! Those words rocked history, and they have just as much power in our lives today. Join us at 9:30 or 11 a.m. Easter Sunday as we unpack important Biblical truths about a timeless message that gives us a fresh start at life.
Imagine how different your outlook on life would be if you had absolute confidence God was with you. Imagine how different you would respond to difficulties, temptations and even good things if you knew God was in all of it and was planning it to leverage it for good. This six week study challenges us to grow BIG Faith. Fight Club meets every other Saturday at 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. The next Fight Club is April 2.
FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS
Men, do you ever feel like it’s a daily fight just to stay ahead of the game? Life can seem like a competition, whether it’s at work, at home or at the gym. But what about the battles that matter most? Join other men of The Sanctuary to eat, connect, laugh and hang out at Friday Night Fights! It’s happening at 6:30 p.m. April 8 in the Community Room. Because in this fight, you aren’t alone. For more info, contact Bryan Buckley: [email protected].
LUNCH WITH THE PASTORS
If you are new to The Sanctuary, make plans to join us for Lunch with the Pastors right after second service on May 1. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our mission and vision, get to know Pastor Ronn and Pastor John and, of course, enjoy lunch together. Childcare will be provided. Sign up at the Info Table if you plan to attend.
We will have a child dedication during the worship services on May 8. There will be a Child Dedication class during Surge April 13 for anyone interested in finding out more about child dedications and having your child dedicated now or in the future. The class will explore the basis for dedicating our children to the Lord and will provide biblical encouragement to parents for raising your children to know and follow Christ. If you would like to have your child dedicated to the Lord or want to attend the class, sign up at the Info Table.
Wondering how our building looks so good week after week? We have a dedicated crew of volunteers that prepares our building for worship. The team is looking to grow its volunteer base. If serving in this way interests you, whether it’s once a week or once a month, sign up at the Info Table or contact Stephani Suwanski at [email protected].
Don’t miss Surge, our monthly midweek gathering at 7 p.m. April 13. Our church will come together at one service for an extended time of worship and in-depth teaching. Childcare is provided for birth to fifth grade.
