ADULTS & SENIORS

ADULT PROGRAMS

Adults of all ages have the opportunity to meet together during Sunday School class, Bible Studies, Life Groups, Food with Friends groups and special church events year round.
We have both men and women’s groups who meet together regularly for Bible Studies and United Methodist Women and yearly women’s retreats.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
Adult Sunday School meets at 10:15 and 11:40 every Sunday, following the 9:00 and 10:30 services.

FOOD WITH FRIENDS
Food with Friends groups get together to share a meal and get to know each other better. New groups form in Spring, Summer and Fall.

UNITED METHODIST WOMEN (UMW)
We invite you to join the 150 year old UMW organization in their Mission work. We meet every 4th Wednesday of the month at 9:00 am. We do not meet over the summer.

GRIEFSHARE
Sanctuary’s GriefShare Group meets on Mondays at 6pm. This group is led by Gary Henry, a Chaplain from Agape Hospice. 

The group helps members to apply biblical principles to the healing process after the death of a loved one, no matter how long ago the loss occurred. 

You don’t have to go through this life changing experience alone.

A testimony from two Sanctuary church members:
”Grief Share helped me through the difficult experience of losing my husband. The films and discussions made a big difference in my progress toward healing”. Jean Kelly

”I found the weekly video program very helpful. It covers several aspects of the grieving process and addresses our various life situations.” Doris Seames 

Some topics that will be covered are “Is This Normal?”, “Challenges and Journey of Grief”, “Why?”, “Guilt and Anger”, and “What Do I Live for Now?”

MEN’S “BREAKFAST AND BIBLES”
On Thursday mornings at 8:00 a.m., men from Sanctuary meet in the fellowship area for Bible study using the Upper Room Devotion. The lesson starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. and lasts an hour. No signup is required.

COUPLES BIBLE STUDY
An ongoing bible study, meeting Thursdays at 6:30p.m.

PASTOR’S LUNCH BUNCH BIBLE STUDY
Meet at the Outlet Mall Food Court for study each 2nd Tuesday of the month. Come and go as your schedule allows. All are welcome to join this monthly study, meeting Tuesdays from 11:30 – 1:00 p.m.

 

SENIORS PROGRAMS

We have an active senior community at Sanctuary. With regular senior luncheons, age related health seminars, and opportunities to meet with others through Life groups or Food with Friends groups you are sure to meet other seniors in the congregation.

A hearing looping system is installed in our sanctuary. The system helps to enhance the enjoyment of our worship services for seniors and anyone with hearing loss.
