ASHBY -- Sanctuary, a brand new church in Ashby, is ready to launch with its Grand Opening Celebration on Sept. 22, at 10 a.m.

What began with only 12 people meeting in homes in town has now grown to over 50 people meeting regularly at the Ashby Elementary School each Sunday morning.

Sunday services are full of young families, dancing children, uplifting music and other offerings from the arts, including dance, drama and visual art. It is not your typical church, but has been created to reach those that would not feel comfortable in a traditional church.

Lead Pastor, Debbie Moylan, began this journey of planting a church in Ashby over three years ago. Her heart is to make a positive impact in her home community and the surrounding area. Some of the long-term goals of this new church include a youth center and performing arts center.

The Grand Opening is open to the public and will include giveaways and a light lunch.
