Picture3

Dear Church Family,

There are people who will briefly pick up chapters of the Old Testament prophets, and pronounce judgment against what appears to them, to be a God of wanton wrath. However, a closer reading of the text portrays a very different picture. Revealed in the poetry and prose is a God who sees the unseen and aches for them; who witnesses the oppressed, and the abandoned, and advocates for them; who longs to shelter the vulnerable. As He witnesses His chosen nation neglecting the least of these, even participating in their exploitation, He calls for justice. He pleads with this rescued nation, who themselves had once been exploited, to open their hearts to His loving character.

Isaiah 1:17: “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”

The case of the vulnerable, the oppressed, the least of these, is close to the heart of the Father. And so I am so excited to see our church family pressing in further and further to join Him in this cause. During this last week I joined a group of selfless men and women, planning a well-organized strategy to help newly arrived refugees adapt to their new home here in Portland. Not only by helping out with physical needs, but more importantly, committing to build relationships with them, helping them adapt to the new language and culture. Dr. Gingrich and Marie Pierre are leading this Cultural Navigation Ministry and are welcoming further team members. If this is something that you feel the Lord leading you to, then give them a call.

In Him,

Pastor Kara Dale

September 17 Communiqué

Jonathan

Dear Church Family,

I wish you could have been around the church this week to see all the activity taking place. Last night, a group of generous-hearted church members gathered to develop plans for supporting Adventist refugees as they arrive in the Portland area. Another group met together to prayerfully seek God’s direction as we fill our final pastoral position. Two church members, as they do every week, walked through the sanctuary to straighten and re-stock tithe envelopes and communication cards. Others stopped in to re-organize Sabbath boxes for our kids.  Some dropped by to help with lawn care. Others stopped in to help move construction materials or tables and chairs. A few gathered to plan for the maintenance of our facility and parking lot.  Some appeared to rehearse music and prepare to lead God’s people in worship. Dozens arrived at various times to study Scripture together and connect with each other. Many gathered for children’s ministry to inaugurate a new Adventurer year and support the Pathfinder ministry.

Every day, in nearly every corner of the church, generous people gave of their time and energy to support this church community and, in turn, advance the cause of Christ. Without the generosity of so many, this church could not be what it is.

In addition, we’ve been making progress on our ReNew 2.2 goal.  At least check, we had just under $39,000 left to meet our goal. Fixtures and building materials have been arriving daily. Demolition is set to begin in just 10 days. I’m thankful for everyone who has contributed and everyone who will contribute as we partner together to complete our restroom remodel before the holiday season.

The Lord has blessed us with energy and resources to serve in His work.  May we draw closer together as we invest ourselves in His purpose.

Looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow!

Blessings,

Pastor Jonathan Russell

September 10 Communiqué

Picture3Dear Family,

As I write, I am sitting in the living room of a house belonging to one of my best friends. It is new to me but because of her presence, feels like home. I have walked the halls of my alma mater, full of rich memories and wonderful lecturers who still know my name, and again, I feel home.  It has been a wonderful thing to come “home” for just a little bit. Yet as I touched the familiar of places and people, I have also been very aware, that Portland is now home to me too. There is a new familiar that I look forward to returning to.

As I child growing up, my idea of home was a permanent dwelling that would not be left, roots that found themselves in physical soil. However, I have come to experience home in the love of people, the blessings of God, the certainty of His presence with me.

There are many people who long for a place to call home, and through His church, us, God longs to provide it. May we be a place where those who are weary, can enjoy rest, where the broken can find healing and safety, the wanderers community. Sunnyside family, you are dear to my heart, you have indeed blessed me with that sense of home. It is my prayer that we continue to extend that belonging to all those God brings to us.

“I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me – you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40, The Message.

In Him,

Pastor Kara Dale

September 3 Communiqué

Don’t miss other Announcements  &  Week At a Glance in the Church Bulletin (Click here)

Greetings family,

Not long ago, I came home from work to the beaming face of my precious 4-year-old. His smile was so wide, it threatened to tear his face in two. His eyes lit up like the sunrise at my arrival. “Do you hear that?” he asked with wonder. I listened intently for a moment, and heard nothing remarkable. “It’s an echo.” I listened again. Indeed, if I focused enough, I could hear the echo of everyday sounds reverberating back from the walls and ceiling. My dear son has had ear trouble nearly since the day he was born. Not too many infections, but for whatever reason his ears could never clear the fluid after infections. In short, he was as deaf as a post. But with the miracle of tubes in the ears, the fluid drained and within hours he was hearing things he’d never heard.

Throughout that first day, William consistently shrieked with delight at the sensation of hearing. Even a month later he occasionally shrieks and squeals, just for the joy of hearing the ear-piercing reverberations. Recently, he went to the audiologist to confirm what we knew: Now he can hear.

It has made me think about the joy that kids express at things so simple: The ability to hear an echo or the crickets in the woods. The wonder of a flower, blooming through a crack in the sidewalk. The 344 legs of a centipede moving through the garden. For children, the world is full of awe and wonder, sights and sounds that bring joy.

Somehow, it seems that the older we get, the more we forget. We forget what it was like to see a sunrise for the first time. We forget the sense of accomplishment from taking our first step or riding a bike. As we get older, we forget. Yet I can’t help but think that this is one part of what Jesus meant in Matthew when he said, “become like children.”

God placed us within His creation with a sense of awe. Yet given enough time, the extraordinary becomes ordinary. The awe-inspiring becomes ho-hum. The breath-taking becomes invisible.

My hope for us is that this Sabbath will allow us to recapture the awe of the children, if only for a moment. May God open our eyes to catch a glimpse of His majesty through the eyes of a child.

This Sabbath is a full one as we welcome Bobby McGhee back to lead our community in worship. He has worked hard to organize our worship services and our Saturday evening concert. Looking forward to sharing the Sabbath with you as we worship together.

Blessings,

Pastor Jonathan

August 27 Communiqué

Don’t miss other Announcements  &  Week At a Glance in the Church Bulletin (Click here)

Picture3Dear Family,

I am continually amazed and blessed by the incredible commitment and generosity that I witness here in our family at Sunnyside.

On Wednesday morning, I was blessed to spend time with ladies who gather every week to pray for each other and study God’s word. At the same time a group of men also meet in another room of the church for the same purpose. As I write, others in our family are gathering to help a young single mom and her family get back on their feet. In the office across from me, Rosie is faithfully taking care of all the details that keep our church smoothly running and I can hear Tom’s voice, which means that he is here taking care of maintenance needs.

I am humbled by the selfless love expressed in this community. You truly are the body of Christ, his hands and feet, a bright light in an ever-darkening world. Thank you for your love, thank you for choosing to be a part of our family. It is a joy to serve with you.

In the words of Paul,

I thank my God every time I remember you. In every prayer for all of you, I always pray with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 1:3-6

Pastor Kara

August 20 Communiqué

Don’t miss other Announcements  &  Week At a Glance in the Church Bulletin (Click here)

 JonathanGreetings Church Family,

On Wednesday night, the spiritual leaders of Sunnyside met together at our monthly board meeting. Among the agenda items, the board endorsed a proposal regarding our renovation project that is both challenging and exciting.

The proposal sets forth the timeline for completing the renovation of our four main restrooms. Demolition will begin near the end of September with the project complete by Thanksgiving. It appears that material, supplies, and contractors are aligned to make the plan a reality. That’s the exciting part. The challenging part is that our business meeting has previously decided that we would pursue this project on a cash basis, as funding allows.  This aggressive timeline makes that goal challenging. If you’ve been paying attention to our ReNew Sunnyside (renovation campaign) fundraising progress, you’ll notice that we are about $100,000 short of our Phase 2 fundraising goal. Recently, we received an estate gift, of which $50,000 will be allocated to the ReNew project. This means that to keep our pledge to do this project as cash comes in, our goal is to raise $50,000 in ReNew Sunnyside funding before Thanksgiving. That gives us about 12 weeks to reach our goal. We’re talking about a lot of money. In a short amount of time. Yet as we pull together to contribute as we are able, the Lord can use this faith community to do something amazing.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to welcome our guests in the Christmas season with repaired and refreshed restrooms that are more fully handicap-accessible? Absolutely. And with the participation of every member, the plan can become a reality.

You can participate by marking your gift ReNew Sunnyside.

Blessings,

Pastor Jonathan

August 13 Communiqué

Picture3

Greetings,

When Paul wrote that God placed eternity in the hearts of men, he was not joking. It always amazes me how the grand themes of God’s story are found in so much literature, even movies. Yes, they are there in varying degrees, but they are definitely there! A favorite classic of mine is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It is a musical set in the turbulent era of the French Revolution and at its core, traces the story of a downtrodden man’s salvation juxtaposed by a police inspector’s drive for penal justice.

Jean Valjean is a convict whose desperate hunger one cold winter night, leads him to steal from a priest. When captured by Inspector Javert, the priest chooses to give mercy to Jean Valjean rather than bring him to justice, and graciously sends him on his way. The story follows the two trajectories of the ideologies of grace and works, revealing how God’s mercy can save a life while striving for works will ultimately break you.

It reminds me of Jesus’ comments in regard to the sinful woman whose presence and interaction with Jesus invited condemnation from the ‘less sinful’ guests.

“I tell you, her sins–and they are many–have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” Luke 7:47

I pray that you are experiencing the incredible healing and freedom that comes from God’s grace. May we be a community committed to living this reality, this true identity, that God has given, and in doing so, sharing it with others.

I leave you with the lyrics of the final song, sung by the entire cast, inviting all to join in proclaiming the love and freedom of God.

Do you hear the people sing, lost in the valley of the night
It is the music of a people who are climbing to the light
For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

They will live again in freedom in the garden of the Lord
We will walk behind the plough-share, we will put away the sword
The chain will be broken and all men will have their reward!

Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade is there a world you long to see?
Do you hear the people sing? Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that we bring when tomorrow comes!

Pastor Kara Dale
