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 June 5. 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.
GO GROUPS MEETING
As we wrap up our “Sent” series the next few 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 June 12. Sign up at the Info Table if you would like to attend the meeting, which will include lunch. The meeting will begin at 12:30 in the Community Room.
Calling all kids in preschool through fifth grade! Join us in ancient Egypt July 11-15. You’ll explore Pharaoh’s palace, experience thrilling “real-life” dramas, play high-energy games, sample tasty snacks, and hear unforgettable music. Plus, you’ll meet lots of new friends! Join us for Vacation Bible School from 9 a.m. to Noon each day, but sign up soon! We have limited space available for 100 kids. Sanctuary families can register beginning today. Registration will open to friends outside our church beginning May 29. Cost is $10. Grab a registration card at the Info Table or go to cometothesanctuary.org/vbs.

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 May 28.
