Are you longing to connect with God through a time of deep worship and prayer? Join us the first Wednesday of each month at Surge, which is an extended worship service designed to help us step out of the busy pace of life and Revive, Regroup and Recharge. The next Surge is Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. We will have childcare for birth to fifth grade.

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.

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.

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 limited childcare available, with cheese pizza for their dinner. Please RSVP at

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.

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. Oct. 7, 21; Nov. 4, 18; Dec. 2, 16.

Our junior high and high school ministries meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays for student-led worship, large group teaching, small group discussion and tons of FUN! Feel free to arrive at 6:30 for hangout time.

Students, pack a lunch and come dressed for Turkey Bowl practice from 12:30-3 p.m. Sundays at Freedom Park, 1600 Park Place in Bolingbrook! Don’t want to play? Come anyway and watch! Everyone is welcome.

Parents, plan to attend one of the short meetings scheduled after both first and second services to hear about plans for our junior high and high school students during the upcoming school year. This 20 minute meeting will be held in the church office Oct. 1.

Our college and young adult group meets in the Community Room Sunday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m. (with the exception of the last Sunday of the month). New people are always welcome! Contact Rebecca at 815.980.0127 with questions.
