Greetings church family,

Papaver rhoeas

 I know in the United States we must distinguish between Memorial Day when we remember those who have died in service of our country and Veteran’s Day when we honor those who have or are doing military service. In some specific areas of the world, at this time of year, we remember by wearing poppies. This is the poem that comes to mind.

In Flanders Fields
By John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

While those who died are also remembered, Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military — in wartime or peacetime. In fact, Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living veterans for their service.

To all Veterans connected with Sunnyside, Thank You!

Pastor Dave Allen

November 3 Communiqué

Don’t miss other Announcements  &  Week At a Glance (Click here)
Or visit our website at:

Greetings church family,

It was interesting to sit in a morning worship this week at Portland Adventist Elementary School and hear all the prayer requests for there to be no rain.  The rain is not usually bothersome to those who have grown up around Portland.  This night, however, was to be a special night when they would get to go around and collect candy.  I can imagine that in the mind of most kids this whole candy collecting thing might seem like heaven.  They get to go around and for no apparent good reason, people just give them candy to take home.  Even though these small kids were only concerned with candy we at Sunnyside think also of something else.  We take this opportunity to do something a little more beneficial to more people.

The Sunnyside Pathfinders take this opportunity when so many people are willing to open their doors to go around and collect as well.  They go around and collect cans and non-perishable food items.  The Pathfinders do this while dressed in their Class A uniform.  It’s always interesting to see the look on people’s face when young people in Pathfinder uniforms ask them for non-perishable food items that will be given away in food baskets for Thanksgiving.  The people are so amazed that these young people are so concerned for the people around them to help them out.  This works out to be a win- win- win.  People hear about the Sunnyside Pathfinders and their desire to help our community.  There is a supply of food collected that is of great help in putting together food baskets.  Lastly, the Pathfinders get to do something positive and still have some candy too.  People sometimes give them more candy because of what the Pathfinders are doing.

We choose to view this as an opportunity when we can teach these Pathfinders what it could look like to be in the world but not of the world.  Since we are in a world where people choose this night to open doors and be out and about, we might as well use that openness to help with something we do for God’s glory and honor.  We are out when so many other people are but with a different purpose and vision.  As these young people continue to grow older we pray that they will choose to continue to be in the world but not of the world in their daily lives and positively impact the world around them.

Blessings to you and yours,

Pastor Juan Fresse

Dear Family,

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Dear Family,

Yesterday I visited a beautiful woman whose presence has been a blessing in my life, and who is not far from resting in Jesus. As I held her hand and sat in her presence one last time, I was reminded again of the wonder and privilege that we have in relationships. We often think of “the body of Christ” in a functional way; everyone has their giftedness and special role in the church. This is true – we do, and I am so thankful that the responsibilities are shared! However, God’s vision for His children is far deeper than functionality. It is joy. Sheer joy of connecting, witnessing, sharing, laughing, crying, living life with one another. And so in this whirlwind that often is life, I encourage you to pause in the coming week and make time to connect with someone who perhaps, you have not had the joy of connecting with in a little while. Prioritize it.

This morning I leave for Canon beach, where I will enter my third Doctorate Intensive. I will be away one week, returning next Wednesday evening. It marks a half way point in my studies and I wanted to thank you for the prayers and encouragement that you have given me in this endeavor. You are a blessing to call family.

Pastor Kara Johnsson

Greetings church family,

I am always amazed at how the members of our Sunnyside Church family are involved in so many church and community projects. I am proud of the way our volunteers minister to the needs of people here, there and (it seems) everywhere. Last Sunday I attended an event that celebrated these many ministries from the perspective of Portland Adventist Community Services and was delighted to witness the 2018 Director’s Award being handed to our very own Lloyd Wescott. Lloyd has volunteered at PACS since the agency was located on Powell Boulevard. He and Lorrie were joined by their children for this recognition ceremony and their church family join them in extending our heartfelt thanks and special congratulations. Sunnyside is a proud constituent church supporting Adventist Community Services and is grateful to the many other members who volunteer there so faithfully.

October 13 Communiqué

Don’t miss other Announcements  &  Week At a Glance (Click here)
Or visit our website at:

Greetings church family,

In our current atmosphere there has been a lot of call for prayer.  The calls have gone out from the Oregon Conference all the way up to the General Conference.  By the time you read this, the Annual Council meetings will have begun on the evening of October 11 and continue until October 17.  You might be wondering what you can pray for during this time.

I was recently impressed with a verse that I feel expresses what our church needs.  The verse is found in Malachi 4:6 and says, “He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” This verse at the end of Malachi is referring to the end of time and the Elijah message that God will send, “before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD.” (Malachi 4:5)  I believe that this verse will have a literal fulfillment but I think we can also pray for a figurative application of this promise.

There is a rift that has been developing between different levels of our church organization. Last year there was a lot of fear and trepidation about where the divide would lead at those Annual Council meetings. Praise be to God that His influence allowed for love, patience and understanding to be paramount. There were no unnecessary actions taken that might have exacerbated the tense situation. We need to pray that God would send His Spirit once again in even greater measure. That He would restore and turn the hearts of all His children back to each other. We must ask that the Holy Spirit would help all those involved in these upcoming meetings to love and forbear like Christ.  We must ask that once again the Spirit of God would hold sway and prevail. I encourage you to join me in praying for our worldwide church and the Annual Council meetings.

Blessings to you and yours,

Pastor Juan Fresse

October 6 Communiqué

Or visit our website at:

Dear family,

This morning I write to you from a comfortable Amish Guesthouse in the countryside of Pennsylvania. We arrived late last night to find fresh milk, homemade jam, and butter in the fridge, freshly baked goodies on the table, and many other touches of hospitality that make you feel loved without even knowing anyone! They are touches of grace, extras that were not in the contract that I signed and they remind me of the Father’s heart towards us. So often He can be painted in our minds as one who we can expect the basic “bread and butter” of life from, but definitely not “jam and baked goods!” He does not have time for that! And furthermore, “the mission” does not have time for that! The voice in the back of our minds tells us to, “Get a hunk of bread and eat it while you march!”

But that is not the heart of the Father.

I encourage you to take time to enjoy His goodness, be mindful of the touches of grace, to “taste and see that He is good.” (Psalm 34:8)

May you be blessed this coming Sabbath as you worship together as a family. I will be praying for you all, and look forward to sharing with you on the following one.

In Him,

Pastor Kara Johnsson

September 29 Communiqué

Don’t miss other Announcements  &  Week At a Glance (Click here)
Or visit our website at:

Greetings church family,

Last week I had the privilege of visiting with Jack Betz on the occasion of his 97th birthday. As we meet in this Sunnyside Church facility from week to week, we don’t often recall that it was Jack, his son Ray, and Frank Reynolds who were the core building team producing this place we call Sunnyside Seventh-day Adventist Church. As I greeted Jack, his firm grip was as strong as ever. Those hands had built my church!

Tomorrow, during our second service, Jack’s great-grandson, Mack, will be dedicated to the Lord. He will be in the company of his parents, Kirk and Christine Betz, grandparents, family, and friends.

It is rare that we can formally acknowledge four generations of a family as a living part of our Sunnyside Church Family.

We are blessed.

Happy Sabbath.

Pastor Dave Allen
