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).

She Never Had a Warm Meal
Series: Standalone
For this year's Mother's Day message, Troy explains how great moms demonstrate the agape love that’s not an emotion, but a decision. It’s the deliberate love that we choose to show, no matter what, and it’s demonstrated through action. It’s choosing to disregard ourselves purely for the benefit of others. He also encourages each one of us to obey God and follow the example of great moms by growing in the areas of love, grace, acceptance, and forgiveness.

    Real Love is Meaning What You Say
    Continuing in our 1 John series, Troy shares what the Bible tells us, that if we say we know Jesus, but do not obey Him, we are liars and the truth is not in us. On the other hand, when we do obey Jesus, we can be sure that we know Him, and have fellowship with Him. It's not that the more we obey, the more God loves us; however, our love for God and our willingness to do what He asks of us go hand-in-hand.

    Proof of Light in the Darkness
    To kick off our new series through 1 John, Troy reminds us that we need to love other people who follow Jesus, but we also need to know that our love for one another is our best witness to people in the world. Troy also reassures us that there was proof that Jesus really became a man, because John and others experienced Him with their senses, including their sight, hearing, and touch. In addition, John shows us that God is light, not the light, or a light, but light itself.

    Spring Mission Sunday
    Series: Standalone
    For our Spring Mission Sunday message, guest speaker Jonathan Turner tells us about his ministry at Key Communications and also encourages us to evaluate our hearts as we strive to love people and share Jesus with them.

    Keep Going (We’re Almost There)
    Series: Standalone
    In this standalone message, Troy encourages us not to give up on our faith (or anything that's important to us). When we're discouraged, and even feeling as though we're in a pit of despair, it's worth it to continue on because our faith affects other people, our standing with God, and our story.

    A Wasted Life: When Hope is Not Enough
    For this year's Resurrection Sunday message, Troy encourages us with the fact that even though we may need to experience what it’s like to have little or no hope, we can also discover that Easter is about more hope than we can handle. The power that rose Jesus from the dead not only changes our lives right now, but also gives us an incredible hope beyond the grave, where eternity is far beyond anything we can imagine.

    Tapping into the Power of Prayer
    In the final installment of our series through James, Troy reminds us that although God can certainly do whatever He wants (He is God after all), He chooses to involve us and partner with us. And as we share our praises, needs, and requests with Him, we should keep in mind that prayer is not about us, but about the object of our faith, which is God.

    Worth the Wait: Don’t Give Up On God
    Continuing in our series through James, our former elder Paul Steele explains that although we don't normally enjoy waiting on things, there is actually great value in exercising patience when it comes to enduring suffering and persevering until God shows up with His incredible mercy and compassion.

    Trusting God When You Can’t Do It Yourself
    Series: Standalone
    In this week's standalone message, Troy talks about the fact that God has made thousands of promises to us, and it’s impossible for Him not to keep His promises. This means we can trust that He will do just that; in fact, that’s really what faith is all about: it’s believing that God is going to keep His Word.

    A Bad Investment: It’s Not All Yours
    In this week's message from our series through James, Troy reminds us of what we learn from the first five verses of Chapter 5, that riches can become a problem depending on the manner in which wealth is acquired, the spirit that wealth can potentially produce in the heart, and the way in which the wealth is used. Through this message, we are challenged to do something practical to love our neighbors and be known as the people who love the ones that Jesus loves.
