A new place of worship is set to open its doors in Romeoville.
The Sanctuary Church's grand opening services will be Sunday (Sept. 22) at its newly renovated facility—1251 Windham Parkway. The public is invited for an engaging Biblical message, a high-energy kids' program and great music in a casual atmosphere at both the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services, according to a news release issued by communications director Emily Neal.
She said the church—located just off Weber Road, near Life Time Fitness, is housed in 25,000 square feet of what used to be office space. Neal said workers turned the empty space into a church with a 420-seat auditorium, a large lobby area, a wing for kids' classrooms and offices and a community room.
"We can't wait to open our doors to the people in Romeoville, Bolingbrook, Plainfield, Naperville and other communities as a place to worship God together," said Lead Pastor Ronn Smith in the Sanctuary news release. "As our name suggests, we want to be a refuge for those who are seeking community and looking to grown in their faith in God."
