Grow your faith at Sunlight!
Sunlight’s mission is to gather in and nurture God’s growing family. We work to nurture your relationship with God and help you know and love Jesus more through many ministries. As you can read about below, we offer programs throughout the week that will help you learn more, develop Christian relationships and passionately serve and worship God!
Sunlight is committed to helping every Christian grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18). For this reason, we have established the Sunlight Discipleship Center. Pastor Scott teaches through a two-year curriculum on selected Saturday mornings, which includes four semesters of classes in Systematic Theology, Apologetics and Evangelism, Christian Ethics and Living, and Reading the Bible for All It’s Worth. Through these in-depth classes, we expect to see lives changed, leadership developed and ministries enhanced for the glory of God. We meet at 9 a.m. on scheduled Saturdays. View our Event Calendar to see what classes are coming.
Morning Joy is a women’s ministry that meets for Bible study, prayer and fellowship at 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. Psalm 30:5 says, “Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” We celebrate that, despite the pains, trials and difficulties in this life, we have new hope in Christ. Another women’s group meets on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in Classroom A.
For those who are grieving a loss, Sunlight offers a support ministry called PEACE on Friday nights at 7 p.m. The group name is an acronym for Prayer, Empathy, Attitude, Christ and Endurance. Using the Bible as their guide, those who attend this group find the peace that passes understanding that God offers those who trust in him. They know that God comforts us so that we can be a comfort to one another. For more information, visit our Facebook.
The Bible says, “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Gal. 6:2). In the stories of Scripture, we see the church as a vibrant body in which all members care for each other. We want to be that kind of church! “Give Help, Get Help” is a new ministry our deacons have created in order to connect those in need with those who would like to help. Some need financial assistance or meals delivered to their homes. Others need supplies for a newborn, transportation or light home repairs. If you are struggling with the burden of a need, let us know! If you’d like to offer to help someone with a need, please let us know as well! Forms are available at our information desk in the lobby.
Did you know that 75% of people released from prison will commit another crime. However, that number drops to 14% if they studied God’s Word while incarcerated. Hebrews 13:3 says, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison.” Our church offers several ways to minister to those behind bars. Crossroad Bible Institute is a correspondence ministry in which you can anonymously help prisoners learn important Bible lessons. Kairos is a ministry that visits local prisons and shares the love of Christ, bringing them the freedom that only Christ can give.
