Who doesn’t love a Family Movie Night? Join us at The Sanctuary Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. for three movies in one night! Adults can enjoy I Can Only Imagine, while kids and teens can watch an age-appropriate movie in two separate “theaters.” Free popcorn and drinks will be available. We’ll see you at the movies!
THIS IS US
What makes The Sanctuary Church unique? Why do we do what we do? How do you fit in? We will answer those questions and more during our new sermon series, “This is Us,” which begins next Sunday. We’ll explain the Biblical truths behind our four-part code of leaving safety for adventure, leaving isolation for community, leaving complacency for commitment and leaving comfort for compassion. Each weekend, we will showcase opportunities for our attenders to get involved through serving, groups and outreach opportunities.
MOVE UP SUNDAY
Children in Kid Life classes from birth to fifth grade will move up to their next grade level on Sunday. Please let your children know they will be going to a new class.
