Chocolate Sunday is HERE – This Sunday!

Don’t miss Sanctuary’s sweetest annual event!  Make or buy your favorite chocolate dessert and bring it to church.  Desserts will be displayed and available for purchase!  Proceeds will go to Nana’s House.

Sunday’s Guest Minister – Mary Jo Hansen many years our church (and individuals) have been supporting Nana’s House, a safe place for children in Tepic, Mexico.  We count it a privilege that the director, Mary Jo Hansen, will be with usthis Sunday morning!  She is an excellent speaker and minister.  Mary Jo always comes with wonderful testimonies and inspirational stories.

Awana Is Coming!

Awana is a global ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and serve Him.  In the next several weeks you’ll hear A LOT about this outreach ministry Sanctuary is preparing to start.  Would you begin to ask God how He wants to use you?

Jim Mortensen will be leading this ministry.  If you have questions, Jim has answers!  You can reach Jim at 494-4944.

The Word For You Today Daily Devotional!

As of the first of the year we have begun a daily devotional together!  In about 3-5 minutes you can be greatly encouraged, as God will drop His Word into your heart.  Pick one up at the Back Table.

Operation Christmas Child

Last week I mentioned that we will be packing 300 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes this year.  Collection of items has already begun, and so has donating toward the shipping costs of $2700 this year.  If you would like to begin giving towards that goal, please just mark your giving “OCC” or “Shoebox Shipping” and it will be saved for that. 

Ladies – next Friday night, February 16, will be a fun night of fellowship with a potluck dinner at 6:30pm!  It will also include a great opportunity to serve by doing easy projects that will help get items ready for shoeboxes!  Yes, we are starting now because there are lots of boxes to prep for this year.  Yay!!!

Looking forward to a great year serving with you all!



Israel – March 2018!

Our 15-member team will be traveling to the Holy Land March 5-16!  We would really appreciate your prayers along the way.

Sunday, 2/11 –

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)

See ya Sunday!

Pastor Mark
