Ministries

Each of the ministries of The Sanctuary are carefully designed and carefully nurtured to provide fruitful and lasting change for our members. Every leader spends time in leadership training sessions working to make themselves better leaders. Plainly stated, the people that oversee each of these ministries make this church go. They are committed and dedicated people, who put the Lord Jesus Christ first in their every pursuit. Whether it is scouting or home bibles studies, there is a ministry in place to meet the varied needs of our people. Take some time and get to know each of the leaders and their ministry.
