If you recently started attending The Sanctuary, you are invited to have lunch with the pastors right after second service Sunday! This is a great opportunity to find out more about the mission and vision of the church, get to know the pastors, ask questions, and, of course, enjoy lunch together. Please RSVP here if you plan to attend. Childcare will be available.
YOU’RE IT JOURNALS
During the season of Lent, we are offering a “You’re It” journal to help you focus your daily Bible reading time during the weeks leading up to Easter. The journals are available at the Info Table on Sunday, or you can follow along online at youreit.org. You will see a “subscribe” box on the web site. By entering your e-mail address, you will receive the daily reading in your e-mail.
March is the last month of ARISE, the two-year generosity initiative The Sanctuary launched in April 2012. We are $79,000 away from reaching our $1.9 million goal! If you are new to our church, we want you to know that your tithes and offerings are part of our ARISE One Fund. Thank you for being part of this journey! With God’s provision and your faithfulness, we are praying that we will finish strong at the end of March!
How has God been working in your life since we launched ARISE two years ago? We would love to hear your story! If you are new to the church, tell us what God has done since you came to The Sanctuary. Share your story at sanctuaryarise.org/share-a-story/.
