Our Christmas offering is a tangible way to join God, through Sanctuary, in the renewal of all things. Future Builders is our building, special missions and expansion fund where we give over and above our regular giving to build the future of our movement, region, and world.
Every December & January with great faith and vision, our leadership share some key initiatives, partnerships, and projects for the year to come. As a community, we then prayerfully pledge to financially sow into the future.
This Christmas we hope to raise $50,000 for the six initiatives below.
We have a unique opportunity in partnership with Bags Of Hope to purchase 332 personalized, monogrammed duffle bags filled with comfort items and gifts for EVERY FOSTER CHILD in the Providence system.
We also have their names… which gives us a unique and intimate way to pray. After you purchase a bag (online or on Sunday), come take an ornament with a name on it & a prayer guide from the lobby.
In the fall of 2023 we plan to launch a residency and internship program. This past year we have been developing a new immersive experience for those wanting to deepen their discipleship and clarify their calling all while serving at Sanctuary. Both the residency and internship will involve college level course work through courses, direct mentorship, leadership coaching and experiential learning.
Your gift will help fund the human and material resources needed to launch this well.
No Need Among Us
Every year we have multiple opportunities to meet substantial financial needs. 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. Last year, our needs ministry provided around $10,000 worth of direct care.
Love Your City
Support our seasonal outreaches to our city like our foster fall fest, back-to-school drive, and Love PVD days.
Local Refugee Care
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.
Your gift will provide direct and essential care for the refugee dream center as well as additional Afghan families with which we have been walking alongside this year.
Let’s Build A Well!
We have a really cool opportunity to finish the building of a well in one of the most under resourced areas in Kenya.
This borehole is being drilled at the site where one of our partner churches exists and will provide potable water to the entire church and all 302 kids in that program as well as the surrounding community!
Every $1 you invest in the Water and Sanitation Priority Initiative creates a $4 return because whole communities spend less on healthcare and more on education and in the local economy.
We are honored to build with you!

STOCK & CYPTO 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.
