If you are new to The Sanctuary, join Fusion, a seven-week introductory small group experience that will meet during the 11 a.m. service, beginning Oct. 11. Learn more about what we believe, your spiritual gifts and who we are as a church. Sign up at the Info Table.


Surge is a monthly gathering of our entire church body the second Wednesday of the month, beginning in October! Bring your whole family for a time of worship and spiritual growth. We have break-out sessions on topics like family, leadership, marriage and more. You also will hear ministry updates and testimony. The first Surge of the year is 7 p.m. Oct. 14.


Ladies, come get refreshed both spiritually and physically with a warm bowl of soup and some Soup for the Soul. The evening will include a testimonial talk, prayer time and a soup-themed potluck at this Women’s Link event, 6:30 to 9 p.m. Oct. 24. Sign up at the Info Table if you can bring some soup to share.


We will be taking a benevolence offering at the end of service Sunday. This is a special offering that goes directly to help those in our church body who have a financial need. Please look for the ushers as you leave the auditorium.


If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and you would like to be baptized, plan to participate in one of our regular morning worship services at 9:30 and 11 a.m. Nov. 8. A baptism class will be offered at SURGE on Oct. 14 to prepare you for the service. Please sign up at the Info Table to participate.


October is Pastor Appreciation Month! Please join us in showing Pastor Ronn, Pastor John and their families how much we love and appreciate them at an all-church potluck right after second service on Oct. 11. We will provide hamburgers and hotdogs. If you are able, please bring a side dish or dessert to share. We also need help with grilling, set up and clean up. Sign up at the Info Table. Please also consider blessing our pastors with a note of encouragement, a gift or gift card, if you are able.
