We’re giving away logo items
Wouldn’t you love to spread the word about The Sanctuary when you are drinking coffee at your desk or toting your stuff around town?
Well, this week we will be giving away logo items from The Sanctuary. And it’s so easy to win.
As a staff, we are so excited about our new online home. But we don’t want our web site to be lonely. We need YOU to visit! So, yeah… we’re even willing to give prizes.
Check it out: Ten people will win their choice of a mug or tote bag just for leaving a comment on our blog anytime this week. The more comments you leave, the more entries you receive.
Receive additional entries if you subscribe to our news feed, become a fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
I know… that was a little confusing. Here is exactly what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post or ANY post between Sunday, June 20, and Saturday, June 26. Each time you comment on a post, you get an additional chance to win. (It’s not hard! Just scroll to the bottom, fill in your name and e-mail address and say something nice.)
Then, get even more entries when you:
2. Subscribe to our news feed, became a fan on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. (That’s right. You get another entry for each thing you do!) Just leave another comment letting us know what you did.
3. Comment on our Facebook page or write on our wall anytime this week for even more entries.
4. Check back here on Sunday, June 27. That is when we will choose 10 winners from all of the entries we receive. (Each person can win only once.) Winners can choose either a tote bag or coffee mug.
So, go ahead. Spread some comment love. We want to hear from you! And we want to give away some cool logo items from The Sanctuary!
Website looks great guys! Thanks to everyone who contribuited to make this place awesome.
Are there certain exclusions that apply…like can the pastor’s wife be entered in this drawing or are employees and family members ineligible? Because I really like both the bag and the mug!
I love this new website and the interaction on it!
The news feed is such a big bonus, I really like having info from my church on my homepage, and for the record, I think if the pastors wife wants a mug or a bag, she should just get them. No contest req’d. But maybe that’s just me…..
Thanks, Michele. I forgot to include the official rules: “Pastors, staff and their family members must enter the contest just like everyone else!” =] Thanks for leaving a comment.
Oh… “Rules are subject to change if the pastor authorizes the purchase of additional mugs to give to his wife and staff without participation.”
Great way to get people to visit the site! I’m already trying to decide if I’d rather have a mug or the tote.
Great Idea! Will the mugs and bags be on sale at some point?
Mug me! It will look so cute next to my Apple mug.
PS- I really do love the new site. Thank you to everyone who put blood, sweat & tears (and most if all, TIME) into it.
I love the new web site!! Great job on all who made this happen! I would love a mug and a bag…you know Emily then I can tote my Bible and my coffee around town and to Bible study!
This is my shot at a mug!
site looks fantastic!
So if we were already FB friends of The Sactuary and signed up for the news feed before the give away period even started, do those count as entries?
everything looks great! excited to get updates and send people to the site.
Elizabeth, Absolutely! You should probably get double points because you did those things without even knowing there would be a prize!
As long as you leave a comment on a blog post this week, then you also get entries if you subscribe, fan on Facebook, follow on Twitter or leave a comment on FB or Twitter. You just need to tell me that you subscribed because that is the only thing I can’t track. If you don’t ever leave a comment, then you don’t get entries for the other things.
So far, you left a comment on Sunday, two on Monday, subscribed, became a fan and left a comment on FB. Great job! Thank you!!
You know me………I love Free! I hope to be drinking from the coffee mug soon! I also really like the site, and yeah that it is up and going!
LOVE THE NEW SITE EMILY!!!! Oh and “something nice!!!”
Oh and I LOVE THE NEW SITE SANCTUARY PEEPS!!! “something nice” :0)
ok last comment…. when I win…I wanna tote!!! …… no pressure!!! TOTALLY KIDDDIIIINNNNGGGGG!!!!!!!! Ok I’m done!
Cool website and cool logo items! I could always use a new bag to carry my books home from the library!
I love free!! Sign me up!
What people will do to get something FREE. I’m one of those folks. But on a serious note, the web site is fantastic. I just may join on Face Book, since I have never done any kind of Face Book yet.
I feel wayyyyy behind, seeing all these wonderful comments already! Website is fantastic!
I already joined on fb and do enjoy having Sanctuary news there… Great job on the website and the bag and mug look fun too!
Thanks everyone! You are all making me feel so good to see all of your encouraging comments. We are so blessed to be part of such an awesome church family.
Don’t forget… You can get additional chances to win when you comment all week long. More good stuff coming!
Website looks great..Nice job guys!
Wow, my little church is growing up just before my eyes! We have a new website and it looks great! I am not 100% sure on who did what but “thank you” Katie, Vince and Emily for completing this task! I am probably missing someone else to thank but please accept my blanket “thank you” for your contributions because I know this task was large.
I think we should allow staff to participate then Pastor Ronn should will get his tote bag and if I am so lucky to earn a gift I will donate a tote bag to Pastor Ronn!
Emily or anyone, do you know how I can make the website my homepage? Thanks again….
Andrea, your three comments in a row cracked me up!
You’re now in my feed reader. And I am seeing what happens if I fill in ALL of the blanks.
The web site is great! What a great way to stay connected.
The web site is great! What a good way to stay connected.
How many times do we get to enter?!
I told my wife that in order to get a mug or bag (both of which she wants) she needed to leave a post on this blog! To which she replied, “You’re the pastor can’t you just get me one?” To which I replied, “You’re a teacher what else are you doing all summer?” Love you Holly:)
Bob, I will be posting some examples on facebook of how real men can use the tote bag! Don’t miss it!
Cathy, you get an entry each time you leave a comment here or on facebook. No limit. (ok… Within reason.)
Ben, can’t wait to hear from holly!
Cathy what Emily means by “within reason” is you can’t post the exact same comment and have it count for 2 entries. Change something, anything!
All right, but I didn’t see the post the first time I did it so I thought I would try again and then there was the original! There was no turning back. I think I should just be done for the week! Is that different enough for you.
Count it! (3) entries for Cathy! C U Saturday:) Tell Jake Happy Belated Birthday from me!
OK, Ben! I think we are going to have to subtract entries from people who discourage other people from playing along! Cathy is doing exactly what I asked her to do!!
We’re going to have to get Holly on here to leave some nice comments to balance you out. Don’t you remember reading in the previous post that I said to say “something nice”?!?!
Something nice! There I said it:)
It’s ok Emily, Holly just has Ben on a tight leash. He knows he has to keep commenting in order to win her a mug or a bag!
Well here goes, my first comment: Emily, I love the blog – you’re awesome! Ben, just focus on getting my bag! Cathy, stop commenting so Ben can win me a bag!
What a fun website. I feel like I am getting to know people I haven’t met yet, just by reading comments. It will be fun to put faces to names as we get more involved at The Sanctuary.
Christina, thanks for coming by!
Andrea, I love your competitive spirit!
Holly, HILARIOUS! You crack me up!
Holly, I’m not stopping now!
Ben, Holly, Cathy and Emily…..You guys are cracking me up! Out of control trying to get free stuff! Love it!
seven ? Just wondering, I don’t want to see any copy cats!
Remember, I am working for Pastor Ronn so that he can use that tote bag at Caribou
I love your creativity, Bob! And thanks for leaving a comment on a more serious post! Those count, too!
BTW, Bob. It’s so caring of you to work so hard on behalf of Pastor Ronn. Hilarious!
Hey m, if admin deletes my comment, does that mean no entry for me? Or do I have to tell you I love the website? I do I do I promise!
Ronn would look good with a man purse slung over his shoulder as him and “Biker Eric” sip on their latte’s:)
Cathy: the more you post the tighter the leash gets over here…cut me some slack!
Emily: don’t say BTW those are my initials and I always think someone is addressing me when BTW is used:)
Bob: thanks for making it so that I have to scroll down the page forever to get to the bottom:) You and Ronn will look great at Life Time together with your man bags!
I love the new website. It’s fantastical! Thanks to all who spent their time and energy using their talents on the new website.
Hey Kendra- I was just thinking about how perfect the tote bag would be to use to carry around the supplies for our cake decorating class and what a perfect conversation starter that would be about our church! If that doesn’t compel someone to give me a free bag, I don’t know what does!
Holly, Kendra, I am still waiting to see some of your creations! Maybe you could use the tote bag to bring some beautifully decorated cupcakes over to my house!
If you’re looking to corner the market in Yao, having me lugging that tote to ESL classes or sipping Joe from that mug during staff meeting would pretty much seal the deal. Glad to finally see the new site. We are praying for Bolingbrook and the ministry.
Oh, BTW, BTW had a Warrioriffic message last week.
Comments have been light the last two days. What’s up with that. Have the winners already been picked?
I am so proud of our church family here at The Sanctuary. This website is a reflection of the work God is doing in the hearts of his people within the congregation, the gifts and talents He has given them, and is a blessing to those who are served by it. I pray that as we live according to the four pillars that we will reach many more people for Christ. To Him be the glory!
