Welcome to Sunnycrest UMC. Take some time and look through our website to get a feel for our ministry.
Who we are
Sunnycrest is a community of believers who strive to help others in their faith walk through worship, ministry, and mission.
Our mission statement is Love God, Love Neighbor. We develop all of our ministries around this mission guided by these 5 core values:
- Prayer is essential to a Christ-centered personal life and church. Everything we do starts with prayer and will be how we seek God's Will to guide us and tap into the power of the Holy Spirit to sustain us as we help build the kingdom of God.
- Discipleship is the process of transforming our lives to be more like Jesus and introducing others to the love of Christ and helping them transform as well. This transformation occurs as we continue to grow our relationship with Jesus and each other through prayer, scripture, worship and personal relationships in small groups.
- Service is helping meet the spiritual and physical needs of others. It is the natural response to a faith in Jesus. We will develop ministry opportunities to meet the needs of our community within Sunnycrest church and mission opportunities to meet the needs of our community outside of the walls of the church.
- Relationship is the underlying theme of the Bible, God reaching out to have a relationship with each and every one of us. Relationship is the glue that holds a community together. Opportunities to build relationships will be the guiding factor in our ministries and missions.
- Inclusion is central to the message of Jesus. He defended all sinners. We believe the church is open to all and all are welcome. We are all equal at the foot of the cross.
What to expect
Expect to meet Jesus. You are walking into a community of Jesus followers. Expect friendly. Expect to be greeted
because all are welcome. No dress code, come as you are.
We have two options for worship. We have a traditional service at 8:15 am with traditional hymns, prayer, and a message. We offer two contemporary services at 9:30 and 10:40 am with a full Worship Team (Ignite), prayer and worship.
All services deliver the same message, with services usually lasting around 45-50 minutes.
