Start Mother’s Day worshiping with us!
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.
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! Save the date for July 31 to Aug. 4 when kids will learn to apply spiritual lessons from Noah’s life, and uncover lots of earthly lessons along the way as they learn about the great flood from the book of Genesis! Sign ups will be coming soon for this week of fun and adventure! VBS will meet from 9 a.m. to Noon.
Men of The Sanctuary meet every other Saturday from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Community Room for breakfast, Bible study, discussion and accountability. The next Fight Club is May 13. Contact Bryan Buckley, [email protected]

Wondering how our building looks so good week after week? We have a dedicated crew of volunteers that prepares our building for worship. The team is looking to grow its volunteer base.
