Creative worship on Sundays
As part of our worship service this morning, we want to invite you to not only worship through music and singing, but to also engage in a deeper experience by using the stations at the back of the auditorium. Feel free to walk to the back of the room during worship to use the prayer stations, pray with a member of our prayer team or take communion.
Mark your calendars for 6 p.m. Sept. 24 for our Annual Meeting. Members will vote to approve the budget for the new fiscal year, elder positions and new members. Childcare will be available. We also will have an Info Meeting to discuss details of the budget at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 17 in the Community Room. Anyone who attends The Sanctuary is welcome to attend the Annual Meeting, but only members can vote.
Take a break from lunch or dinner prep on Sept. 24 and support our missions team by eating at the Romeoville Culver’s! A portion of the sale goes back to the missions team.
BREAKING DOWN WALLS: HOMELESS NOT HELPLESS
SEPT. 30: Bring the family at 7 p.m. as we break down the misconceptions of homelessness, assemble care packages and hear how we can come alongside organizations in our area.
Come find out what makes The Sanctuary unique. You will learn about the DNA of our church during this four-week group that meets at 11 a.m. Sundays starting Oct. 1. Get to know others who are new to The Sanctuary, meet ministry leaders and find out how to take the next step to get involved.
THE FIGHT CLUB
This fall, men will dive into a study, called, “Play the Man.” Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. The Fight Club meets 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. Sept. 23; Oct. 7, 21; Nov. 4, 18; Dec. 2, 16.
Are you longing to connect with God through a time of deep worship and prayer?

Students, pack a lunch and come dressed for Turkey Bowl practice from 12:30-3 p.m. Sundays at Freedom Park, 1600 Park Place in Bolingbrook! Don’t want to play? Come anyway and watch! Everyone is welcome.
