Hello Sunrise family!
 
We are holding in-person services at our church building (with the precautions below in place) each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. For the time being, we are having our main worship service with no Sunday school, nursery, or children’s church.
 
For those who watch online from home or another location, we will live-stream the services from our website (sunrisechurchspokane.com/stream). If you’re able to see the live feed but cannot hear it, check the icon in the lower left corner of your screen. If it has a slash, it’s muted and you can select the icon to unmute. It will take about 20 seconds for the sound to start after you unmute. Also, if you are viewing on a mobile device, you may have to scroll left or right to see the person speaking.
 
To our members and regular attenders, we really appreciate your ongoing commitment to Sunrise, and we’re extremely grateful for all of your amazing efforts in staying close and connected to one another, in whatever ways you can.
 
In Christ’s love,
 
The Sunrise Elders and Ministers
 
 
Reminder of current rules, guidelines, and precautions:
 
  • Please stay home if you feel or appear sick, if you have a temperature of 100.4°F or higher, or if you’ve been around someone with these symptoms. Fever, cough, and shortness of breath are common symptoms of COVID-19.

 

  • You are welcome to visit in the parking lot before the service, and you can even arrive early to do so, but once you’re in the building, please go directly to your seats. After the service, please exit the building as soon as possible.

 

  • We all need to wear facial coverings inside the church building before, during, and after the service. If anyone lacks a covering, additional disposable masks will be available near the main entry door inside the building. Please remember that this is meant to protect the health and safety of others, especially if the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms. This is a way to show that we love and care about others, and that we’re willing to sacrifice to bear one another’s burdens.

 

  • The only exception to the facial covering policy is for those who are leading a song or speaking on stage, as long as they are either alone on stage or at least six feet away from any other person. This exception is granted to assist those who are hard of hearing in being able to read lips.

 

  • Please refrain from direct physical contact (handshakes, hugs, kisses, etc.) with any person who is not in your immediate family in your same household.

 

  • Pathways are marked inside the building to keep the proper distance between people. Pews in the auditorium are also marked off for the same reason.

 

  • The Lord’s Supper emblems will be placed in the front of the auditorium so that people can serve themselves while maintaining proper distancing. Instructions for partaking will be given during the worship service.

 

  • The main restrooms in the lower level of the church building will be open for use, for no more than 2 people at a time. Those who are waiting outside should maintain at least 6 feet of distance between each person.

 

  • Please cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow.

 

  • Please wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer, especially after using the bathroom, partaking of communion, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

 

We want to be good citizens and follow these guidelines, with a focus on protecting the health and safety of everyone. We also believe that if we were to have an outbreak, and it was discovered that we chose not to follow the rules, it would seriously damage our reputation in the neighborhood and community. Despite the different views we may have, let’s pray and strive to maintain unity as God’s people. Our mission to reach this world is more important than any issues that might cause division. As Jesus told us, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35).

Listen to God and Follow the Truth
Continuing in our series through 1&2 Thessalonians, Troy reminds us of the encouragement Paul gave to his readers (including those of us who follow Jesus today), specifically that we should follow the truth and not believe any false teachings that might suggest Jesus has already returned, which would take away the incredible hope we have for eternity. Thankfully, we still have that hope for our lives right now and forever.

    Don’t Give Up and Never Stop Growing
    As we move into Paul's second letter to the Thessalonians, Troy explains how these believers grew in their faith and love for each other during circumstances that should have caused them to do quite the opposite. He also reminds us, as followers of Jesus today, that a big part of having faith is trusting that the goodness and faithfulness of God will answer every aspect of injustice in this age. God’s will is already being worked out in the life of the church, even when outwardly it appears defeated.

    Wide Awake in a World That’s Fast Asleep
    As we move into chapter 5 of 1 Thessalonians, Troy shares Paul's instructions that encourage us to resist the temptation to live in a way that's immoral and self-indulgent, and instead to be awake and alert in the sense of putting our Christian identity and the truth of God into practice. When we're awake in a sleeping world, we make God and other people more important than ourselves, and we live in a way that demonstrates our faith, love, and hope.

    Not Alone: Jesus Can See in the Dark
    Series: Standalone
    As our Youth Minister, Chad, shares with us, we live in a time of great darkness, but Jesus is the light of the world and not only can He see in the dark, but He also calls us to share His light and let it shine so that every person might come to know God and follow His path.

    Walking the Walk (and the Difference it Makes)
    In the latest message from our series, It Will Get Better, Troy shares some encouragement from the apostle Paul that can basically be summarized in this way: "You’re doing great, now keep doing even better!" Troy also reminds us that a critical part of our faith is trusting that God is good, that His ways are better than ours, and that life works much better when we follow Him rather than ourselves.

    Earning a Glowing Report Card
    Continuing in our series through Paul's letters to the Thessalonians, Bud reminds us how much reports matter. They can encourage or discourage. Sometimes they mean life or death. Most importantly, a good report can lead to opportunities for sharing the gospel and helping to influence where someone spends eternity.

    Living to Please an Audience of One
    Continuing in our series through Paul's letters to the Thessalonians, Troy reminds us that when it comes to serving God and following Him no matter what others think, if God is pleased with us, then all is well. Or to phrase it another way, if the master is pleased with what we’ve done, then everything else is okay.

    The Power of Genuine Life Change
    Troy kicks off our new message series, It Will Get Better, which begins a journey through Paul's letters to the Thessalonian church. Knowing that the universe will end with God’s eternal triumph helps us find meaning in what seems to be chaos. And that’s the power of genuine life change: hope for now, hope for the future, and hope for all of eternity.

    Do God’s Work With Him
    The "Great Commission" is really our "co-mission," as we partner with God and allow Him to work through us. God's mission should be important to us, not only because it's His mission, but also because we need hope and we want every person in the world to come to have hope.

    Treat People Like You Want to Be Treated
    As part of our Core 52 Recap series, Rick reminds us how it's easy to treat people like we want to be treated when we're at the church building or spending time with other Christians, but how our challenge is ultimately to understand that every person in the world is our neighbor, and that we are expected to treat each and every person just like we would want to be treated by them.
