Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour this weekend. Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. We are looking forward to worshipping with you at 9:30 and 11 a.m. You won’t want to miss Pastor Ronn’s message, “Consequences”, in the “My Secret” series.
CELEBRATION OF LIGHT
It can be hard to know how to bridge cultures to share the love of Christ. If you have neighbors, friends or colleagues who are Hindu, or if you have people in your life that need to hear about Jesus coming into the world as light to overcome darkness, here is a chance to invite them to an event celebrating the light of Christ through a holiday called Diwali. Nick and Jamie Howard and Tony and Tintu George are hosting the event at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Community Room at The Sanctuary. The evening will include an explanation of what the holiday means traditionally to Hindus, along with a Christian response to the concept of light entering the world to conquer darkness. Beyond all that, it’s just fun: Don’t miss the fireworks and good food! Invite your friends, neighbors and coworkers who know about Diwali, want to learn about it, or just want to have some fun. Contact for more info.
HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
We are excited to be able to host Hope for the Holidays, our fair trade holiday shopping bazaar, here at The Sanctuary on Nov. 23. Give the gift that gives twice when you shop for handcrafted items from 30 countries! Hope for the Holidays will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Invite your friends for unique gifts, live music and chocolate tasting. Please contact for more info.
If you are a volunteer in any ministry area at The Sanctuary, please make plans to attend Leadership Community 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 24 in the Community Room. This will be an awesome time to come together to learn more about our vision, build leadership skills and huddle with our ministry teams. Childcare is available for children birth to preschool.
LUNCH WITH THE PASTORS
If you started attending The Sanctuary in the past year or so, you are invited to have lunch with the pastors right after second service on Nov. 24! 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 sign up at the Info Table if you plan to attend. Childcare will be available.
NEW MEMBER WEBSITE
We have recently changed our online directory to a new hosting company. We want to encourage you to log in and check out how you can use our database. This is the place we will be posting volunteer schedules for ministry areas, the church wide calendar and registration for events. It’s also your stop to find contact info for others at The Sanctuary.
Here’s how you can help:
- Go to https://cometothesanctuary.org/media/member-login/ . Click the link that says “Sign Up” to create a user name and password. (This is a new database, so you should click “Sign Up” even if you had access to the old system.)
- Check your personal info and your family info to make sure everything is up to date.
- Upload a profile photo.
We are in the process of updating all of our ministry groups so you can use the online directory to check your serving schedules. If your ministry area is complete, you will see it listed under “groups.” You will find the new database much more user friendly than the one we used in the past!
Thrive and Crossfire, our junior high and high school ministries, are in full swing! Both groups meet together for student-led worship and large group teaching, then break off by age groups for small group discussion. Thrive and Crossfire meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays. Students are welcome to arrive at 6:30 for hang-out time.
If you have a prayer request, please feel free to send it to our Prayer Team so they can lift up your needs before the Lord. Contact with your prayer request.
