September 22-26: Deaf Christian Women’s Retreat.
In 2002, a group of deaf women decided to start a Women’s Retreat for deaf women in the Pacific Northwest. The deaf women are members of a completely different people group with their own rich language and culture. There is an average of 20 women attending the Deaf Women’s Retreat, and the deaf women who attend come from as far as the east coast. They enjoy gathering together – it’s like a family reunion. This year they are hoping to rent a bus to take the women to the coast for the day; however, they do not yet have the funds for this to happen. Also, this year, for the first time, they will be selling shirts with their logo on them to help raise funds for future events. They are hoping and praying they will be able to earn enough money so they can pay the expense for the weekend, and bring in a speaker from another state. If you would like to help sponsor the retreat, you can send a check made payable to “Tabernacle Adventist Church” and mark it for “Deaf Christian Women’s Ministries,” 26 SW Condor Way, Portland, OR 97239.
Event Location: Camp Tilikum, 15321 NE North Valley Rd, Newberg.

Greetings church family,

 My wife shared with me an experience that occurred to her this week and I decided to let her share it with our whole church family. Here is her experience in her own words:

 “It was a typical Tuesday and a run to Costco was necessary. Since my oldest is spending the summer with the Youth Rush program, it was myself with only four kids in tow. You don’t have to know me long to discover that I like things to happen quickly – walking through Costco is no exception. I led them into the refrigerated section, rushing to get through the cold when suddenly a woman zoomed by on a motorized cart, speaking quite harshly. I didn’t catch it all, but her words were directed at my children and she said something about finding your parents so they can teach you to be more responsible. Well, that’s not what any parent wants to hear! As best I could figure out, they must have startled her as they were walking (maybe a slight run?) so quickly past her and she hadn’t seen them coming – they were probably just trying to keep up with their speeding mother!

 At that point, I had a choice to make. I could let the harsh words of a stranger ruin my day, make me yell at my kids, and just generally feel like a failure. What perspective would I take? After a quick discussion about “didn’t mean to” not being enough, but rather we need to be aware of those around us and be intentional about being respectful to everyone, we moved on with our day.

 Just a few minutes later we were standing in line to pay and the cashier started commenting on how well behaved and respectful my children were being. A couple of them stifled a laugh – I knew they were silently wishing the woman from earlier could hear this.

 It is amazing how perspective changes things. Same kids. Same mom. Same day. Same store. One person chose to look at us and see rudeness and disrespect. Another looked at us and saw politeness and good behavior. I can’t help but wonder what else had happened in the life of the first woman to cause her to find fast-moving children so offensive. But that is where my perspective needs to come in. Will I judge her the same way she judged me and my children? Let her ruin my day? Or will I choose to see her as a child of God, loved unconditionally by Him? Tuesday I chose the latter. What will tomorrow bring?”

 As I heard of this experience, it reminded me that we should not be so concerned and worried about what others think or do. We should simply choose to live our lives the way God has called us to. I pray that you will choose to not worry or let others affect your days in negative ways.

 Blessings to you and yours,

Pastor Juan Fresse

Dear Family,

Jesus says, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”

I think if you want to know what the crux of Jesus’ point is here you have to go to the next sentence. “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Where is your treasure?

In Luke chapter 10 Jesus speaks to a friend about where her treasure is.

Luke 10:38-42

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mary’s heart was at the feet of Jesus. And it showed. If you were to look at Mary’s checkbook ledger, if she would have had one, you would have seen that priority reflected. Mary’s treasure and her heart were reflected in how she lived her life.

In the book Steps to Christ, Ellen White asks a simple question and gives a simple answer; her question? “By what means shall we determine whose side we are on?” The next paragraph doesn’t look at the outward appearance, it looks at the heart. Here’s her answer: “Who has the heart? With whom are our thoughts? Of whom do we love to converse? Who has our warmest affections and our best energies?”

The answer to these questions will be found in what is found in the stores of our hearts.

Pastor Mark Witas

June 29 Communiqué

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

John 1:5

 

Dear Family,

It has been another full and blessed week at Sunnyside, complete with SunnyCity on Sunday, preparations for VBS this weekend, a Business Meeting and phenomenal Chamber music by 21st Century Initiative (who will be playing again Saturday evening for those that missed out Thursday night), along with many other things squeezed in between! As I reflect on this week, the Business Meeting stands out, not only because of the way people stayed on to chat with each other (I love that about our church family), but also, because of the incredible storm that we experienced that evening! I have to confess, that I am quite a fan of storms – I could sit out on a veranda and watch them for ages! As a child in PNG, I used to really enjoy running out into the warm tropical rain. On the flip side, those same storms can also do a great deal damage.

It really came down Wednesday evening, more than I have experienced here in Portland. Yesterday, it threatened to do the same again. The clouds were building, the sky darkening, but as I looked out from my deck, a stunning rainbow could be seen over the city. It stopped me in my tracks, reminding me of God’s sovereignty in our lives, and close presence in the stormy darkness that we experience in our journeys. May it be of encouragement to you this weekend – the darkness will not prevail.

In Him,

Pastor Kara Johnsson

This year they are hoping to rent a bus to take the women to the coast for the day; however, they do not yet have the funds for this to happen. Also, this year, for the first time, they will be selling shirts with their logo on them to help raise funds for future events. They are hoping and praying they will be able to earn enough money so they can pay the expense for the weekend, and bring in a speaker from another state. If you would like to help sponsor the retreat, you can send a check made payable to “Tabernacle Adventist Church” and mark it for “Deaf Christian Women’s Ministries,” 26 SW Condor Way, Portland, OR 97239.

Dear Church Family,

Change Happens!

It feels like much is happening in our busy Sunnyside Church Family life. Apart from the regular church activities, we have a special outdoor Agape Supper on Friday night, Sunny City on Sunday, Business Meeting next Wednesday, and Vacation Bible School the following weekend. Just this selection shows a healthy mix of in- and outreach, ministries both in and from Sunnyside. We are blessed with many volunteer teams that make this happen.

At the same time, we want our members to be aware of a number of items relating to the actual facility that houses our family. Maintenance, upgrades, and changes are happening for the purposes of supporting our ministries, easing our access while making our facility safer and more secure. To name a few:

  1. Our ReNew Committees are active in developing and implementing plans for replacing sanctuary lighting, enhancing our platform area, and bringing a new look to our sanctuary floors, pews, and walls.
  2. HVAC upgrades include replacements of the two main sanctuary HVAC units outside the back of the church building and the replacement of all the thermostats for every zone with digitally managed controllers.
  3. We are asking our members to prepare for change in the way our main and north doors are accessed. In addition to long-needed electronic ADA entrance access at both these doors, each member family will be assigned a unique code for use in entering the church at times other than Sabbath services.

It remains our intention to grow effective ministries in and from Sunnyside while prioritizing safety and security in and around our facility. We are grateful for the many who are involved in effecting these changes.

Thank you!

Pastor Dave Allen

June 15 Communiqué

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

Greetings church family,

During the past week, there have been celebrations at many schools and institutions. They have celebrated the accomplishments of those who have completed a course of study or attained a certain degree. It has been great to see the accomplishments of these young people celebrated. I don’t think we celebrate the good that people have done enough. While we celebrate, it is also important to remember that all these things would not have been possible without God. The Bible tells us, “He is the one you praise; He is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes” (Deuteronomy 10:21, New International Version).

At the various ceremonies that I have attended there has also been an effort to extol the graduates on their continued journey. The reality is that even though they have reached a certain level there is always more to attain. Most of the people celebrating the graduates (and even the graduates themselves) recognize that the graduation is just a step along the journey. There are further steps to come in the continued journey of life. Sometimes when it comes to our spiritual journey we have lost sight of this same fact.

I ask that you ponder your spiritual journey. As you think about that journey, do you feel that you have continued to attain to more in your walk with Christ? Do you feel that at some point you reached a graduation and stalled? I would suggest that (as the graduates have been extolled) we must all remember to continue to grow and learn on our journey. Let us celebrate what God has helped the graduates and us accomplish. Let us remember to continue to attain more in our spiritual walk with Christ. Let these be our words, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14, New International Version).

Pastor Juan Fresse

Shout out to all those who assisted in getting our air conditioners replaced and working during this very hot season! Also, a shout out to those who worked so diligently to get our water system in good working order to keep our grounds green! Thank you to all of you!

Heartfelt “thank yous” come to us from the Walla Walla University nurses for the members of Sunnyside Church taking the time and effort to feed them a marvelous home-cooked meal every Monday night at the nurses’ dorm, and sharing good fellowship. They have sent us many, many notes of gratitude. Special shout out to the “Bread Night” team.

June 8 Communiqué

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

Dear Family,

 I know Dwight Eisenhower. Well, at least I know a lot about him. I’ve been reading a book that detailed many parts of his life from childhood through his heroic influences in World War II. I know about his personal faith. I know who he married. I know what his colleagues thought about him. I know the date he was born and the date that he died. I know how his ideas about war and the war machine were changed through the years and into his presidency. I know Dwight Eisenhower.

Actually, I know a lot about Dwight Eisenhower. I don’t really know him.

Question. Do you know a lot about Jesus or do you know Jesus? As I prepare this week’s sermon on prayer, I’m discovering that there’s a difference between knowing about someone and knowing someone.

If my relationship with my wife was based on how much I’ve studied her, examined her words and actions and read all the things that others have reported that she did, it would fall short of the goal of a relationship of love. Why? What’s missing?

What’s missing is conversation. Talking and listening. Sharing secrets, dreams, and little words of affection. What’s missing are confessions of love, confessions of sorrow, sharing of joy and pain. All these things are the cement of a relationship. And this, my friends, is the difference between knowing about Jesus, and knowing Jesus. In a word, this is what a prayer life can do for you and me.

Pastor Mark Witas

 

Send your “shout-outs” to info@SunnysideAdventist.org so we can include them in next week’s Communiqué. This is a place you can recognize someone for doing well, or going beyond expectations.

A shout out from the Bible Roundtable SS class to the doctors and nurses at OHSU who cared for our classmate Roy Murray. The surgery for oral cancer was a success & Roy has been declared cancer free! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

 Shout out to the dedicated Pathfinder leaders and adults who planned, organized and spent the time last Sunday getting our Pathfinders through 50 bike riding miles for their bicycling honor.   Ed & Erin Betz, Russ & Francie Davidson, Jonathan Russell, and Norman Henry.   Especially Davidsons who were celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary.  That’s dedication!
