Sunday morning worship services at Sunnyside include singing hymns and newer songs, reading of scriptures, prayers, an offering, and a 20-25 minute sermon, and a time of sharing praises and prayer requests with our church family. Our services usually last about 90 minutes. We enjoy a blend of simple liturgy, or ritual, with elements of informality in our worship. In our worship we integrate spaces both for contemplative silence as well as sharing testimonies or personal stories of how we are experiencing God at work in our lives.
Our time of worship begins at 9:30 a.m., with pre-service music starting at 9:20 a.m.
Christian formation or Sunday School for all ages follows the worship service (usually around 11:15).
Fellowship Meals are held most first Sundays of the month following Sunday School, but not every month.
Greeters will greet you as arrive in the main entrance (look for the name tags) and can answer any questions you may have.
Coffee and Tea are available in the downstairs fellowship hall after the worship service.
Childcare is available for children under 2 in the nursery located off of the foyer when you arrive. Toddlers ages 2-3 are dismissed from the worship service for toddler care during the sermon time but after the worship songs.
Accessibility: The upper entrance is wheelchair and walker accessible.
Dress: Wear what feels comfortable for you. The congregation at Sunnyside wears everything from casual to smart casual to a few wearing jacket and tie or dresses.
Sermons: We believe it’s important to cultivate the gifts of people within the congregation as well as having outside speakers who connect us with the wider church.
