Have you ever been so familiar with something that you never really see it?
For instance, I just noticed that there is a great Burmese Restaurant on my drive to work. I’ve been making that drive for almost two years, every day, but I just noticed this neat little restaurant, that makes great food that I like.
Yet, I saw it for the first time now that I’ve taken a closer look.
Perhaps you’ve been rolling along with our Sanctuary community for a few months, or even a few years, and you keep seeing the promos for our Taking Root and Cultivate classes that we offer on a regular basis.
“What are those?”
Taking Root is a four-week class that helps walk you through some of the basic principles of what it means to be a Christian and to walk with God. Have you been going to the Sanctuary for a few months, but you’re still new to this whole life of faith? Taking Root is a great intro or refresher on the basics of Christianity and how God, Jesus and the Bible fit into our daily lives.
Cultivate is our partnership class that takes four-weeks to learn about the history of our church, our Foursquare denomination, and why we do what we do at The Sanctuary. If who’ve been with us for weeks or for years, and are ready to partnership with our church and call it your home; Cultivate is for you.
Maybe you’ve been hearing about our ongoing classes throughout the month of May. Maybe you’ve passed them by a thousand times. Maybe now is the time you stop and really see them for the first time now that you’ve taken a closer look.
If that’s you, and you want to find our more: our next Taking Root & Cultivate class-cycle starts June 5th.
Hopefully you’ll find something in these classes, wonderful and helpful, hiding right in plain sight.
If you have kids or youth or are interested in hearing about the exciting changes coming to our UTURN and CHAMPS Ministries, join us in the Father’s House Sunday, August 7th at 6:00 PM.
Lately, it’s been a season of firsts for my family, specifically, as it relates to my eldest daughter... Just this last week, she was sitting at the kitchen table with her mom – one generation with another, passing on a very valuable life skill, reconciliation...
As we are going through various psalms in the Book of Psalms this summer, we have heard personal perspectives on how people have been connected to certain chapters. The last couple of teachings have been, at times, hard to hear.
What is Community Care?
Community Care is a food-sharing ministry that began about 7 years ago to help those in need at The Sanctuary and in the surrounding community. Community Care has been successful to-date because of your food donations. Not only have we provided...
Though our poor spelling is a rather clever idea, some of you might be wondering about Psummer Psalms and all the different faces we’ve seen teaching the past few Sundays...
When you think of CHURCH what comes to mind?! There are unique elements to each congregation.
Check out this guest article by our own Dirk Mullenger, as he wrote for another website on how he raised three passionate daughters.
Jeff and Judy Hopkins? Though they’re fairly quiet folks, it might surprise you to know that they’ve been with us at The Sanctuary for quite some time!
Having finished our Fiddler on the Roof production, as a church we might wonder, "What now?" Past the wonderful acting, the sets, the dance numbers and music, we are left with the impact of a simple phrase, “May God be with you...”
