To Sunnyside Baptist Church

Visit Us

Profile Age-wise, we are a mixed congregation. Sunday morning attendance is between 25 and 50 people. Dress trends toward business-casual, though you can find anything from jeans to suits. People are friendly and we are very happy to meet and greet you.  

 

Beginning On Sunday morning at 9:45am we come together for an hour for our Sunday School programs, in which we learn about God’s Word and its application to all areas of life. Following that, we begin our Sunday morning service at 11:00am. As we find our seats in the sanctuary, we sing songs to prepare our hearts for the service. 

 

Music The music we sing at Sunnyside Baptist Church is a blend of old and new. We love the doctrinally rich hymns of the sixteenth century and we find blessing in the choruses of the twenty-first. Most of us who are comfortable with music from one particular era have discovered, while at SSBC, that we have come to enjoy other songs we had not previously encountered. We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, over performed music, which tends to spotlight the abilities of some while encouraging passivity in the rest. 

 

Body of Service Our service formally begins at 11:00am, led most often by an deacon or pastoral staff member. During this time, we sing several songs, offer prayers of praise and confession to God, hear Scripture read, and give our offerings and tithes.      

 

Sermons Preaching at Sunnyside Baptist Church is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around an 40 minutes and are packed with material for reflection. All preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
