Sanctuary Concert Series

Sanctuary Series is dedicated to furthering the mission and vision of Christ Church United Methodist through music. The events are free and open to the public with an offering collected to bless worthy organizations in our communities. Through sacred music, Sanctuary Series invites its patrons to “worship God in the beauty of holiness” (Psalm 96:9) and strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ. Sanctuary Series is funded entirely through private donations.
