On Sunday, families at The Sanctuary have an opportunity to be active in the community and make spiritual memories by participating in the School Pray at Bolingbrook High School. Before heading out to BHS, please meet in the Green Room at 12:30 p.m. to share refreshments, and to learn about what prayer is and how God uses it. We look forward to seeing you there!

June 26: The Martian
July 3: Inside Out
July 10: The War Room

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. The last Fight Club of the season is Saturday at 7:30 to 8:45 a.m.
NOW SERVING FAIR TRADE COFFEE
“Every once in awhile God gives us something big to do, but every day he gives us something small to do. Those small things make a difference.” – Jonathan D. Golden

Through direct relationships, fair wages and community investment, Land of a Thousand Hills works closely with Rwandan coffee farming villages, building relationships and helping them to have a better life.
