Come hear about our vision for the coming year, ministry updates and a review of 2017 at our Annual Meeting at 6 p.m. Sunday. Members will vote to approve the budget for the new fiscal year, elder positions and new members. While only members can vote, we encourage all attenders of The Sanctuary to attend this meeting to stay up-to-date about plans for 2018! Childcare will be available for birth to preschool.
TOGETHER PROGRESSIVE DINNER
Since we moved into our facility four years ago, The Sanctuary Church has grown in numbers, but also expanded in ages, stage of life and diversity. It is our hope that during the next two years our entire church will come “Together” around a common vision. We want to go deeper in our walk with Christ and one another, grow wider in our relationships and reach farther into the community and world. Find out more at a special progressive dinner at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 21. Adults will enjoy appetizers, drinks, dinner and dessert in different rooms of our facility as leaders explain what’s ahead. We will have childcare available for the first 30 children to RSVP, with cheese pizza for their dinner.
Take a break from lunch or dinner prep on Sunday and support our missions team by eating at the Romeoville Culver’s! A portion of the sale goes back to the missions team.
BREAKING DOWN WALLS: HOMELESS NOT HELPLESS
SEPT. 30: Bring the family at 7 p.m. as we break down the misconceptions of homelessness in Will County. Those attending will assemble care packages to give to people without homes and learn how to come alongside organizations in the area to help.
If you are looking for an easy and meaningful way to serve in our community, sign up to partner with Morningstar Mission. We have the opportunity to help serve dinner to those without homes 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 14.
Come find out what makes The Sanctuary unique. You will learn about the DNA of our church during this four-week group that meets at 11 a.m. Sundays starting Oct. 1. Get to know others who are new to The Sanctuary, meet ministry leaders and find out how to take the next step to get involved.
THE FIGHT CLUB
This fall, men will dive into a study, called, “Play the Man.” Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. The Fight Club meets 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. Sept. 23; Oct. 7, 21; Nov. 4, 18; Dec. 2, 16.
Are you longing to connect with God through a time of deep worship and prayer?
