Tools for School is coming up next week, and there are three ways you can help provide school supplies to kids in DuPage Township!

1. Visit the Chic Fil-A in Bolingbrook from 3 to 10 p.m. TODAY (Aug. 4). Chic Fil-A will donate 20 percent of your order to The Sanctuary Church to purchase additional school supplies for Tools 4 School.

2. Drop off school supplies at The Sanctuary this Sunday! Please place your donations in the bins near the Info Table.

3. Join us at 7 p.m. Monday for a fun, high-energy packing night at The Sanctuary! It’s an evening fit for the whole family, featuring games, music and packing backpacks for children in DuPage Township who might not otherwise have school supplies.


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.


KidsTown is gearing up for their fall kickoff Aug. 14! Children ages birth through 5th grade will be stepping up into their new classes. Krew (4th and 5th grade) will start meeting during second service in the Community Room. Have questions? Contact Rainie Curtiss at .


Thrive and Crossfire will have their fall kickoff meeting Aug. 15! Parents, please plan on attending a parent meeting at 7 p.m. to hear about all the exciting things planned for your student in the upcoming semester. The youth group meets from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays for student-led worship, large group teaching, small group discussion and tons of FUN! Feel free to arrive at 6:30 for hangout time.
