As we prepare for the Congregational Meeting on Sunday, please continue to pray that our incredible God who has been so faithful, loving and kind to our church for the past 18 years will guide our members to vote their hearts in a spirit of unity. Members will decide the direction for the next phase in the life of our church by voting on whether The Sanctuary Church should merge with Highpoint Church in Naperville.
The merger would require a two-thirds majority vote of the members present. Pastor Ronn explained options in a letter to our church earlier this week. If the merger is approved, Highpoint’s Bolingbrook campus would combine with our church as Highpoint Church, The Sanctuary Campus. We will worship God together before voting at the meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. Members are strongly encouraged to attend, but all are welcome. Childcare will be available for birth to fifth grade.
SHORT TERM MISSION TRIPS
The Reach Global team will be giving details on short-term mission trips available for singles, couples and families at a lunch after second service March 24. The Sanctuary is planning trips both domestically and overseas this summer and fall. Come hear about the trips to decide which is the right fit for you!
PRAYER FOR THE SANCTUARY
We would like to set aside time Sunday between services to pray as a body for the next steps for our church. Please make this a priority and join us in the hallway outside the office for prayer.
