Breakfast Circle with Special Guests
Potluck - we'll have the basics - please bring something to share.

A Very Special 4th Sunday Circle and Fellowship
with friends of Sanctuary and You!

As a new kind of faith community, Sanctuary UCC is constantly assessing the impact and outcomes of our experiment to "be sanctuary in the city."
 
We are pretty sure that we are doing something unique and much needed as we ask deep questions, have deep conversations, make deep connections and form deep convictions. We also think that doing this through art, film and music is pretty cool and we have discovered that it attracts people who would not otherwise be involved in a church. Sanctuary's "sacred circles" are faithful, formative, inspirational and a blessing!
 
That is not all though -
we're convinced that we have been called to offer...

Please join some of our community partners
for a discussion about the impact Sanctuary is having in the City of Medford.

If you cannot join us, please take a moment to send us some feedback

Bring a friend and some breakfast items to share!!

A Prayer for this week's Sunday Circe and Breakfast:
Draw closer to us, God our Creator,
for sometimes in our desire to be accepted and loved, we try to be someone else; forgetting that we are wholly loved and uniquely made. Amen.
