DONATE.

Your donation allows us to continue our weekly function, but further it allows us to connect people in community with each other and in communion with God. Thank you for your faithfulness.

GET INVOLVED.

We believe that our GIVING involves every part of our lives -- our time, tithe and our talents. After we give our finances, we give our time and abilities to see the Kingdom of God advanced. Join us now and make an impact!

growing a mission-minded people

At The Sanctuary we believe that all Christians are on mission for Jesus. Some of us travel around the world, some work hard in our own countries to resource those traveling, some go on short term trips to foreign countries, some serve locally at a food pantry or homeless shelter, but no matter how it looks, we're all called to give, pray, and to go serve somewhere.

PROJECT SCV | VALLEY VIEW 

What if changing the world for Jesus was as simple as walking across the street? Well, it might be that simple. Or at least it can start there. 

We have been reaching out to the elementary school across the street. Valley View Community school recently got a massive facility upgrade, but like anyone, their needs are deeper than structures and programs. That's where WE come in!

With Project SCV, The Sanctuary has been and will continue throughout the year to support specific events and projects with our finances, our abilities and our time. We are partnering with the faculty, the PTA and our own Project SCV leadership team in changing the lives of the kids and families at Valley View.

We are looking forward to coming alongside them in more practical ways this fall by putting our "boots on the ground." This will take many volunteers, giving of your time, to be on campus. We will be serving in areas that will allow the teachers to spend more time with the students.
As we continue to give of our finances, please consider signing up below or at the Welcome Center. As areas of need are presented to us from Valley View we will contact your directly, letting you know when and where your "boots" are needed.

Benefits


why online giving is worth it

At The Sanctuary we understand that the sacrifice you bring to God through your time, your finances and your gifts & abilities is just that -- a sacrifice.  As a result we want to make giving as simple as possible for you. There are several benefits to online giving:

First Fruits - In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the "first fruits" of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution, scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify, you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God for His continued ministry in our church and our community. To gain a deeper understanding of the Biblical principles of giving, we invite you to download our free reader “Giving at The Sanctuary ~ Offering Our Lives to Reach A Community."

Simplicity & Practicality - You will not need to remember if you gave tithes/offerings this month or mail your offering checks when you are out of town.

Security - Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic contribution can't be lost or stolen. For additional information on how The Sanctuary keeps your information and contributions secure, click here.

No Distractions - Instead of worrying about writing a check during our services and events, you can be fully engaged in your participation, knowing that you have already given your offering.

Info & Records - With your private login, you can conveniently view and print a detailed history of your contributions at any time.

Efficiency - If you desire, you can choose to give without the login process... AND you will still have the benefit of specific records.
