Starting May 31st, you will no longer be able to give online via SimpleGive. If you have recurring payments set up or routinely give through the SimpleGive interface, then you will need to transfer all giving over to The City. You will need to create an account on The City if you have not already, and will need to set up a giving account for your contributions in our giving portal. If you open the video below, it will walk you through this process. Thanks so much for partnering with The Sanctuary Fellowship to see the name of God lifted high in our hearts and lives! If there are further questions, please e-mail us at email@example.com.

Easter is almost here! At The Sanctuary Fellowship, our desire is to honor God in all that we do, and this is especially true when it comes to the celebration of Easter. Because of this, we have made our best effort to provide resources to help families worship together and draw near to the Lord. In the days leading up to Easter, we have a daily devotional including family activities that will help us to humble our hearts before the Lord. We encourage everyone, whether you are a single person, or part of a large immediate family, to take the daily devotions and use them to remember the cross. Be reminded of how terribly offensive our sins are to the Lord and that the only way that they could be dealt with was by His intercession and action. Our hope is that your hearts would be moved towards deep worship of God and a sincere gratefulness for His mercy.
We also hope that you will join us for our Easter service on Sunday April 8th at 10:15AM at Sartartia Middle School!

Sometimes we get asked why we seek/call on the Lord’s presence in our worship gatherings. Isn’t he always with us, as Christians?
I think we are dealing with partial truths, things that are true in and of themselves but are only part of the picture. In the most general sense, God is always with us in his omnipresence- he’s everywhere!
In a more specific sense, he is with us as believers residing in our hearts. But I still think there is something more to this even in the personal sphere of our spiritual walk.
And what about worship? Corporate worship? Isn’t he always with us when we sing songs and gather and read/teach the Bible- surely he’s there.
Again, yes and no. He’s with his people but there seems to be something else that is at play. There seems to be a barrier between us and the Lord’s eternally glorious power and presence moving among us, personally and corporately. I believe that to be our flesh and carnal desires- as we want and are satisfied in the world and its pleasures, we will not seek the Lord nor experience his power.
So, we are admonished in Scripture (both by command and through exhortation) to seek the Lord:
Isaiah 55:6; Job 8:5; 1 Chronicles 28:9; Hebrews 11:6; 1 Chron. 22:19; Psalm 105:4; 1 Thes. 5:16-24
Therefore, we will encourage all who worship with us to fully enjoy the presence of the Lord by setting their minds and hearts on the things above, denying their fleshly desires, and clearing the way for the glorious power of the Lord to be made manifest!
“We worship you, Almighty God! There is none like You! Holy Spirit, rain down! Dwell in our hearts, let your mind be our mind, direct our hearts to be consumed by you, pour out your glory among us!! Amen.”
There will be a string of blogs here only containing pictures of the new location. They are buttoning things up and we are SO CLOSE to having our first worship gathering at the new location! Pray that the Lord goes before us and prepares the way for powerful worship and ministry at the Sanctuary’s new location!
