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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
