Some of the most exciting services at The Sanctuary are Baptism Sundays! You are not going to want to miss hearing the testimonies of those who will be baptized and watch as they make their public confession of faith through water baptism. Join us at either the 9:30 or 11 a.m. service!
LUNCH WITH THE PASTORS
If you are new to The Sanctuary, make plans to join us for Lunch with the Pastors right after second service on May 6. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our mission and vision, get to know Pastor Ronn and Pastor John and, of course, enjoy lunch together. Childcare will be provided. Sign up at the Info Table if you plan to attend.
Join us for a special evening of Student Life at 7 p.m. Monday. We want to create meaningful conversation within our families by looking at the barriers that are in the way.
