Plan A Visit

Service times, and what to expect upon your first visit to The Sanctuary

Getting to know each other

We love Pastor Jim and Jeanie!! Thankful for their kindness, love, and generosity to our family. We have always loved the biblical sound teaching of Pastor Jim and I enjoy and love working with the kids in children's ministry!

The Shawleys

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at The Sanctuary a great one!


The Sanctuary meets every weekend on Sundays at 1624 Northmoreland Blvd. in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

  • Praise & Worship Service: Sundays at 10:00 AM
  • Food Pantry Worship Service: 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM

What can I expect?


In total, a Church service at The Sanctuary is about 90 minutes in length. Services begin with the praise band leading the church in worship - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, children are dismissed to their classrooms and our pastor will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

Expect to meet friendly people! Expect to encounter dynamic contemporary worship with a mix of hymns and gospel songs! Expect to be encouraged by biblical sermons. Expect to be challenged to grow in your faith by employing your gifts and abilities in service to the Lord. Expect the freedom of the Spirit under the authoritative guidance of God’s Word! Expect to ENJOY!

What's the culture like at The Sanctuary?

Sunday's at The Sanctuary are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at The Sanctuary, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Sanctuary Children's ministry the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Sanctuary Kids experience. Sanctuary Kids is offered at every Sanctuary Sunday Church service for kids ages infant through Grade 5.


The vision our youth ministry grades 9-12 is to inspire our young people to take ownership of their church and schools. We want to build teens that fight against the apathy so characteristic of our world and instead to develop young people who are heroic in their leadership for Christ. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for our youth. So if you’re looking for a youth group to plug into come check us out on Sunday morning at 10:00 AM.
