Mother’s Day and child dedication this Sunday!
Don’t forget that Sunday is Mother’s Day! We look forward to worshiping with you as we honor the mothers in our lives. Thank you so much to all of the women who have loved, prayed for and invested in others to help them along the journey of life. We love you, Moms!
Also on Sunday, we will be joining with families who are making a commitment to raise their children to know the Lord. We will be having child dedications during both the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services. We look forward to worshiping with you on this special Sunday.
Join us May 11 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. to participate in the last SURGE of the school year! Bring your whole family for a time of worship and spiritual growth. We will also be celebrating all God has done in our church this year with ice cream! Join us for a time of fellowship after Surge.
We are so excited to be hosting our sixth annual Biker Sunday May 15 after the 11 a.m. service. This is a fabulous morning to invite friends to ride their motorcycles to church. Pastor Ronn will pray a blessing over our guests after the service, and we will host a free lunch and activities beginning at 12:15. To volunteer at this event, sign up at the Info Table on Sunday or use The Sanctuary app.
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 14.
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.
Parents, save the date! The Sanctuary will be offering vacation Bible school to kids in preschool through fifth grade this summer. VBS will be 9 a.m. to Noon July 11-15. We will be announcing all of the details in the next few weeks!
