Are you are interested in taking the next step in your commitment at The Sanctuary? Then plan on attending a Membership Class right after the second service July 16. If after attending the class you decide you want to become a member, you need to fill out and submit the application provided at the Info Table and an elder will contact you to set up a time for discussing your personal testimony. Please sign up at the Info Table to attend the class. Lunch will be provided. New members will be welcomed at our Annual Meeting in September.

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.

There are several opportunities in the next few months to support our short term missions teams. Check out the different ways you can participate:
