First Seek 2022


Throughout month of January, we will be praying, fasting, and worshiping together with a dedicated focus to set the foundation and direction for the new year. These four weeks are designed to help us develop a greater hunger for God, and to seek His presence, power, and provision for our lives, church, and city through 2022.

Future Builders


No Comments

Future Builders (formerly advent offering) is our Building, Missions and Expansion fund at SANCTUARY CHURCH, where we give over and above our regular giving and step into sacrificial generosity.
Each year with great faith and vision, our team share the key the initiatives, partnerships, and goals for the year to come. As a community, we then prayerfully pledge to financially sow into the future of our church and its vision for the upcoming year.

Keep an eye out as we feature and share details on these 2022 initiatives.

Future Builders Gala is our thank you to all those who give regularly to help build the future of Sanctuary through giving. Join us for this special night on to build a legacy together through our generosity.

The gala is where the givers in our church come together for a night of new vision, light food, dancing and stepping out together as a church to dream for PVD and beyond.


OUR INITIATIVES AT A GLANCE

RIP Medical Debt

Every day 79,000,000 Americans choose between paying their medical bills and basic needs like food and shelter. We have a unique opportunity to eradicate medical debt at pennies on the dollar in our region.

Family Ministry

here is something of a revival happening in our family ministries. Support our annual family retreat, youth groups and new staff.

No Need Among Us

Each year, our needs fund helps us show the love of Jesus whenever and wherever the need arises– whether providing meals, paying rent checks, providing access to professional counselors, or caring for an array of spiritual and tangible needs. Each year our needs ministry provides over $15,000 worth of care.

Love Providence

Support our seasonal outreaches like our annual backpack and thanksgiving drives.

Afghan Refugees

We have a unique opportunity to help serve in the placement and care of this new and  vulnerable community making their way to our city.

Congo Medical Clinic

Seven years in, continue to build and resource a community in one one of the poorest regions of the world.

South Providence

This year we are partnering with sister churches in this lower income and at-risk neighborhood where many of us live.

City Space

We are stepping out in faith to secure a multi-purpose facility in the heart of the city that will house our training spaces, co-working hub, prayer meetings, youth gatherings, offices and creative studio where we can film videos and projects to enhance our training content.

We are honored to build with you!

STOCK & CYPTO CURRENCY TRANSFER

Donating stock is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give. A direct stock donation means up to 37% more value for your donation because of the capital gains tax savings.


THERE IS NOTHING WE HAVE THAT WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED

TO SPEND EVERYTHING ON OURSELVES AND TO GIVE WITHOUT SACRIFICE IS TO WALK THE WAY OF DEATH

BUT GENEROSITY IS THE WAY OF THOSE WHO CALL JESUS THEIR LORD

WHO LOVE WITH FREE HEARTS AND SERVE WITH RENEWED MINDS

WHO WITHSTAND THE DELUSION OF RICHES

WE ARE DETERMINED TO INCREASE IN GENEROSITY UNTIL IT CAN BE SAID THAT THERE IS NO NEEDY PERSON AMONG US

WE ARE DETERMINED TO BE FAITHFUL STEWARDS OF SUCH A LITTLE THING AS MONEY THAT WE MAY JOIN GOD IN THE WORK OF RENEWAL

ABOVE ALL THINGS WE ARE DETERMINED TO BE GENEROUS BECAUSE OUR FATHER IS GENEROUS

IT IS THE DELIGHT OF HIS DAUGHTERS AND SONS TO SHARE THEIR FATHER’S TRAITS AND TO SHOW WHAT HE IS LIKE TO ALL THE WORLD.

ALPHA / EXPLORING GOD


If you are just beginning a spiritual journey or are interested in exploring Christian spirituality, please join us for Alpha.

WHAT IS ALPHA?

Alpha is a 10 week dinner and discussion series designed for people who wouldn’t describe themselves as Christians. Our volunteers provide Alpha guests with exceptional hospitality and a friendly and respectful environment in which to discuss the big issues of life and the Christian faith.

WHO IS ALPHA FOR?

Alpha is for anyone who would not describe themselves as Christian. Alpha is for people who may not come to a Sunday service or a home group.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Alpha runs across ten weekly sessions with a weekend away midway through. Each session includes food, a short video and a discussion where guests can share their thoughts. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and everyone is free to discuss as much or as little as they wish. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
