In addition to our Local and Global Outreach Partners we also have many people in our Faith Family who are actively involved in other outreach ministries. Our desire at Sanctuary is to encourage and empower our members as much as possible to live out the mission God has given them. In doing so, we like to support these ministries through prayer and financial giving as often as we can. We also encourage other members in our body to join them in these ministries as they seek to proclaim the gospel around the world!
Our mission is to bringing the hope of Christ to families living through the challenges of childhood cancer during weeklong beach retreats. Our vision is big- to offer Blue Skies to every family living through pediatric cancer- and, we are dedicated to this dream.
At each retreat, twelve families from all over the U.S. experience a real vacation at no expense to them. Parents and children spend a week with other facing similar challenges, people who can truly relate. As a domestic mission trip, Blue Skies is staffed with volunteers who serve by cooking, cleaning and caring for our guests families so they can focus on having fun together!
