It’s hard to believe that this Sunday is our last worship service with Jeremiah Higgins serving as our creative arts director. Jeremiah and his wife, Katie, will be departing to begin their next adventure in California where Jeremiah will be serving as a worship director at Resonate Movement in Fremont.
We are so thankful to Jeremiah for his love for God, heart to serve, passion for worship and the many creative talents he brought to The Sanctuary the past seven years. We hope you will join us Sunday as we pray for Jeremiah and Katie and send them off on this next step in their ministry.
We will have a child dedication during the worship services on May 14. If you would like to have your child dedicated to the Lord, sign up at the Info Table.
Our Seventh Annual Biker Sunday is May 21 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 p.m. For more info, go to bikersunday.info.
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 4. 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.
Kids can dive deep into the account of Noah and the flood at this year’s Vacation Bible School!
