Greetings Sunnyside family!
If you have not seen it, please, this weekend checkout the church’s new landscape berm along Market Street. It has been “taking shape” through the summer months and on Sunday morning, it was planted. It is designed to have something in bloom almost year around. It was made possible from estate bequests that had Sunnyside named as a beneficiary. A special thanks to the families and loved ones who helped make this happen.
While Sunnyside rejoices to welcome an influx of new members, this weekend we will say goodbye as we celebrate the life of Larry Lewis, on Sabbath at 4:00, and Diane Brunese on Monday at 1:30.
Now on a less melancholy note, this Sabbath Pastor Jonathan will present an address called, “Abnormal.” Come, bring your prayers, your singing heart, and your praises to our Lord and Savior.
Pastor Scott and Staff

Ladies, plan to come and enjoy great meetings and good fellowship. Sabbath, we will have a potluck lunch together; please bring prepared food so we will not need to heat up the kitchen. Following the Sabbath evening meetings there will be a “sleep-over” at Lents Church for those of you that would like to spend more time together or that may be a distance away. Pre-registration is not required. For further information feel free to contact Kathy Pruitt at 360-253-3131.

Pastor Jonathan will conduct a class on using your iPads and smart phones; Roger Rosenquist will present “Techniques to Improve Travel Photography; Video: “The Radicals”– the Anabaptists brought freedom to the world, a crime punished by death. This video “is a call that reaches across all ethnic and racial backgrounds and practices, and discusses what it means to be a disciple of Christ.” ~Myron Augsberger. There will, also, be interesting games and challenges for the children. Don’t miss out, plan now to come and enjoy excellent fellowship.
