We're a multiethnic church transformed by Jesus and united in service. Thanks for checking us out. Be sure to watch this Welcome Video we made just for you with great info you don't want to miss.
If you're joining us this summer, you may be notice Pastor Rich Johnson is on sabbatical -- an opportunity to reflect and simply be renewed as a beloved disciple apart from the responsibilities of pastoral ministry.
In the interim, we invite you to meet our staff + elder teams and our Interim Lead Pastor, Pastor Micah Morgan. Visit this page to learn more about Pastor Rich's sabbatical.
With Jesus as our model and the Holy Spirit as our guide, we are called to pursue the pure heart of God. We aim to speak with compassion, serve with kindness, build bridges that unite us, and love extravagantly. This is the pathway of reconciliation and this is how God works through us so His righteous justice prevails.
We hope you'll read more about us, our denomination the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC), engage our compelling teaching, learn about amazing local partners we're serving alongside, and consider connecting in one of our Sanctuary Groups. Additionally, we have several resources for your journey to seek justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).
If you're a parent or guardian, learn more about our Royal City Kids ministry for families with young children, and The MX -- middle & high school students.
We’re excited to see families joining a multiethnic church, transformed by Jesus and united in service.
Royal City Kids (RCK) serves infants through 5th grade students. It's a place where children learn to live out this purpose in classes and special events to encourage their growth.
The MX is an amazing group of middle and high school students (grades 6-12) that meets Sunday nights for Bible study, fun games and outdoor activities.
We hold weekly worship services on Sunday at 10 a.m. Come and visit our Connections Table in the lobby and our connection team will make you feel right at home!
You're invited to join our staff and leaders for Meet Sanctuary -- held every third Sunday after service. You'll connect with other people in our church community, hear about our purpose in Columbus and where you might fit into God’s developing story at our church.
Meet Sanctuary is a great first step into our community, whether you're new to faith, asking questions, or looking to grow your faith. We're excited to meet you and join your journey with Christ.
Join the next Meet Sanctuary every third Sunday (email Terry Chi to confirm) following the service.
We are called to not only become a part of God’s universal church but also invest in a local community. A powerful way to do this is to become a Covenant Partner with Sanctuary. Come explore what Sanctuary believes, why and how we live it out. The class will look at our story, faith and practice. Anyone who has not yet taken this class is encouraged to sign up.
Covenant Partners Class is held three times a year -- please keep an eye on our Events Page for details on our next offering.
