Come Back So We Can Leave Again
Series: Standalone
In our final "standalone" message of the summer, Troy describes how we “come back” each Sunday, just so we can “leave again” by going out into the world, shining our light in the darkness, and sharing the good news of Jesus. Our world needs us; our city needs us; and our neighborhood in the Shadle area needs us.

    Give Me a Break (or Help Me Escape)
    Series: Standalone
    Sometimes, we need physical rest and the chance to focus on God and gain spiritual strength. Other times, there's a mental or emotional rest that we need just as much, if not more, than physical rest. And that's when we need to get out of our own heads and just do something.

    No, Please, You Go First
    Series: Standalone
    Left to ourselves, we tend to put ourselves first and do as little as possible for others. But as Troy explains, we all know, deep down, that there’s a problem with that way of living, and we want to be better than that. What if we thought about others more than ourselves? What if we showed grace and kindness to the people who disagreed with us? What if we did as much as possible for them? What if we said, essentially, “No, Please, You Go First.”

    Stay in Your Lane
    Series: Standalone
    The Bible is full of stories with people who stayed (or did not stay) in their lanes when it came to following God's will. In today's message, one of our elders, Bud, shares how we can stay in our lanes as followers of Jesus. He also reminds us that sometimes, instead of staying in our lanes, we actually need to get into our lanes.

    God Reached Down to Us
    Series: Standalone
    As Troy reminds us in this week's standalone message, we were all in a deep hole from which it was impossible to escape, but God reached down to us when He came to the earth in the person of Jesus Christ. He jumped into the hole with us, and He rescued us, because He's been there before and He knows the way out.

    Back in Business, Help Wanted
    Series: Standalone
    In today's standalone message, one of our elders, Dean, talks about the various ministries at Sunrise and the critical importance of people serving in those areas. And just as Jesus “did not come to be served but to serve,” a true follower of Christ will give up his or her own comfort and wishes in order to serve others.

    Remember Where You Started
    Series: Standalone
    In today's standalone message, Troy invites us to remember where it all began, not only in our physical lives, but also in our journeys of faith. We can refresh ourselves and find the strength to go on when we recall how Jesus paid our penalty for us, how all of our sins have been forgiven, and how that leads us to forgive other people.

    Growing Up is Hard to Do
    Series: Standalone
    In a standalone message, Troy shares how there’s nothing like seeing someone grow from birth to maturity, and how there's nothing more fearful than watching someone who should grow to maturity remain a child. The same thing is true in our spiritual lives; we want infants and children to move on to maturity, and we want mature Christians to take under their wings people who are spiritual children.

    Follow the Leader (More than a Game)
    Series: Standalone
