Outreach and Justice Ministries
Engaging in Service: A vital part of Sunnyside’s vision is to maintain a grounding in the community as we strive to be the church in the world. We are always looking for ways to help persons grow in discipleship, engage in Christian Practice and form enriching Christian Community that bridges the Church and the world.
