Do your New Year’s resolutions include getting to know people at church better, exploring God’s Word, or growing deeper in your relationship with God? Then your next step might be to get involved in a Growth Group. If you are interested in getting started, we invite you to sign up at the Info Table on Sunday, or contact Mike and Kara Haas: .
At this month’s Surge, Pastor Ronn will be giving an update on what’s coming up for our church in the new year. You don’t want to miss the important info he is going to share. Surge is an awesome way to revive, regroup and recharge the second Wednesday of the month when our whole church comes together for worship and teaching. If you are wanting to grow deeper in your walk with God this year, we encourage you to join us at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Please take a look at the insert in your bulletin for more details on this month’s break-out sessions. Childcare is available for birth to fifth grade.
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 Jan. 31. 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.
Join us on the first day of Lent as we prepare ourselves for the Easter season ahead. We will be worshipping together at 7 p.m. Feb. 10. Childcare will be available for birth to preschool.
For the last five years, The Sanctuary has had the privilege of bringing “Loved!,” a spa event, to our local domestic violence shelter. We are looking for people who love to paint nails, do make-up and offer hospitality, as well as licensed stylists, massage therapists and aestheticians. We are also looking for some volunteers who want to make a positive impact on the kids staying at the shelter by taking them to the local gym for some high energy games. We have limited volunteer slots so sign up early for this wonderful event 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 13.
