VBS 2020 – Rocky Railway

VBS has been reschedule for all summer long on Sundays!

Why have VBS for one week when we could have VBS all summer long! VBS will not be held for one week like we usually do, instead we will have VBS every Sunday morning from 11:00am – 12:15pm! Join us for Loco Motion Games, Imagination Station and Bible Adventures! Plan to board The Rocky Railway on Sunday, June 14th!

Pre-K will be a separate group and will have their own stations. Ages K-5th grade will be in 3 groups and will only be together in the FH for opening and the gym for closing and for dismissal.

Register online at events.mysanctuary.org

Celebrate Recovery

Gain freedom from hurts, habits and hangups at Celebrate Recovery!

The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God´s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.” We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God´s grace in solving our lives´ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.

KidzQuest

Sundays at 11am
1st – 5th Grades
