Start your new year off right by gaining a better understanding of the big questions of life. Join us in January as we launch a new sermon series, “Explore God.” Whether you are exploring faith or you’ve been a Christian for many years, we all have questions about God, the Bible, suffering and other tough topics. Invite a friend to this sermon series that will explore those questions in an authentic way.
There will be a discussion group during the 11 a.m. service starting Jan. 20 for those that want to actively participate in dialogue around the questions during the series. You can find the discussion guide here or on The Sanctuary app.
PRAYER FOR THE SANCTUARY
We would like to set aside time every Sunday between services and Tuesdays at 6 a.m. 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 weekly prayer.
Jan. 13: Mark your calendars for our next Multisite Conversation at 6 p.m. as we explore the possibility of joining with Highpoint Church in Naperville. Highpoint leaders will give details about the ministries of Highpoint and how the two churches could potentially work together to reach more people for Christ.
As we continue the conversation about possibly joining with Highpoint Church in Naperville, we would love to hear from you! Would you please take a few minutes to give us some feedback by filling out this form? Sanctuary leaders would love to hear your thoughts, questions and concerns. https://thesanctuarychurch.ccbchurch.com/goto/forms/42/responses/new
