Creating sacred space through conversation

Our mission is to create a community rooted in the way and practices of Jesus for the flourishing of our neighbors and neighborhood.

We believe everyone has dignity in God. So we create space to listen and learn from each other and to discover God anew in community. We go about our mission through conversation, collaboration, and curiosity. We regularly practice the Eucharist by eating together, reflecting on Christian Scripture, sharing our stories, showing care for people and place, and equipping one another for healthy spirituality.

Our Neighborhood

Sanctuary considers the Lawrenceville neighborhood home. Though we meet in a variety of places in surrounding areas, our hearts-- and for many in the community homes, jobs, and spare time-- are in Lawrenceville.

Like any neighborhood, Lawrenceville is not a monolith. It is known for its small businesses, new and younger residents, and an influx of development over the past decade. But it also houses residents who have lived in the neighborhood all of their lives. As Lawrenceville works to be a neighborhood known for new development and affordable housing, responsible bars and community gardens, engaged citizens and neighborhood programs-- Sanctuary seeks to join in what God is up to in it all. And we look for ways to serve in the brokenness of addiction, blight, and growing pains the neighborhood experiences.
