Jeremiah 29:1-14 This message speaks to the ways the people of God have thrived over the millennia. At times, they had their own capitol city, temple, nation, and earthly king. At other times, they were in exile and living under the power of pagan rulers who didn't share their values or forms of worship. Which was better for the spread of God's tru…

1 Peter 2 We all know Christians aren't always all we're cracked up to be. One of the most common objections to our faith is the bad examples and hypocrisy that believers sometimes display. We need to find ways to be both authentic and commendable when others watch our lives. When others see our faith, we want them to see what Jesus can do with mes…

Romans 12 This message speaks about culture and who's forming who in our interactions with it? Do we make more of an impact on culture, or does it make more of an impact on us? We all like to keep up with the trends, tastes, and topics society focuses on. When it comes to culture, though, we are either acting as consumers or creators. If we use God…

Psalm 2, Revelation 21:22-22:5 In this message series, we will look into the biblical view of culture. Are we supposed to blend in as believers, cry out as prophets, infiltrate and influence, or bail out and preserve ourselves for God? Or is it a little of all these things? This series will work through passages that help us live as resident aliens…

Mark 15-16 Resurrection Sunday's Message The Bible shows us that Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection are the miracles that unleashed the Church in mission. The transforming power of the living Christ changed the course of human history and is still changing the course of individual lives, families, and people groups. We can certainly attest to t…

Mark 11-13 What happens when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem for the final time in his earthly ministry? He was greeted well, but it quickly became clear that he was more than just a celebrity. At the Triumphal Entry, Jesus rolled into Jerusalem as a new sheriff with higher authority than any of their existing leaders. As he taught and debated religious…

Mark 10:32-52 Human hearts desire greatness and self-promotion. We all want to be noteworthy, and we are all too often caught breaking rules and pushing boundaries to be the best. But Jesus definitely showed us a different way to get to the top; he pursued servanthood and commended it as a way to become great in God's Kingdom. In this passage, Jesu…

Mark 10:1-31 Jesus continues to teach on his way toward Jerusalem. As he does, he confronts several instances of hard heartedness in peole. In each case, people have worshiped an idol, and then become more lifeless, stony-hearted, and dead inside - just like the lifeless things they have idolized! Jesus faced the stubborn hardness of our hearts thr…

Mark 9:1-29 This chapter is full of ups and downs - Jesus takes Peter, James, and John up on the mountain to see him transfigured and revealed in his glory! He also takes them back down the hill to a messy world where people are hurting and full of doubt and fear. It is hard to imagine a clearer picture of Jesus' identity and mission, but Jesus' se…

Mark 8 shows us examples of blindness and we also see Jesus' patience and power in healing it. Sometimes, we disciples are a little blind and a little sighted at the same time; we have a mixture of right ideas and wrong ideas all jumbled up in our heads. Jesus knows how to work on us until we see him fully - sometimes we turn things around after on…

Mark 7 We are very quick to profile one another based on outward appearances and first impressions. It is a skill that can certainly save us some time and some hurts if we do it right. However, it can lead us into the illusion that the material, observable parts of life and people are the most important and substantial parts. But Jesus taught and p…

Mark 6 As Mark continues to show us Jesus' ministry work in Galilee, we see the temperature rise markedly, both in his ministry and in the opposition against him. The battle continued to take on an epic scale and exciting space as his work unfolded. He showed in clearer and clearer ways that he has power over nature, that he cares and natures his p…

Mark 5 - There is a consistent theme through all the gospels of Jesus healing the sick, demonized, and broken. Sin and the harms it brings are so much a part of this world that it makes sense: The Creator shows up, and broken things get put back together, including us! We all struggle with illness, injury, brokenness, and the specter of death. In t…

Mark 4 contains a variety of parables Jesus told to illustrate the surprising and mysterious nature of God's Kingdom and the way it grows. Jesus used these stories to catch people off guard and help them understand that his way of being the Messiah would be different than what many of them expected. He wanted to help them see that sometimes, God wo…

Mark 2 & 3 - In these chapters, Jesus clearly indicated his identity and exposed the sides in a battle. He made it very clear to his listeners that he was equal to God the Father and that he was ministering in full authority and agreement with him. At the time, this was extremely offensive and hard to accept. The bottom line is that, though people …

Revelation 21:1-5; 22-26 While Dickens' story only explicitly encompasses Christmas past, Present, and Yet-to-Come, it also implicitly points to Christmas Forever. The story definitely points to the afterlife and the fate of our souls who die without embracing the charity, freedom, and transformation that comes from knowing and following Christ. Sc…

Matthew 3:1-12 In his peek into Christmas Future, Scrooge saw where his life and habits were going to eventually lead him.

Romans 13:7-14 In our journey with Scrooge, we've talked about the past. This message turns our attention to Christmas Present.

Because of all this we are often too often absent from others' joy and suffering; …

Jonah 4 As we come to an end of the book of Jonah, we also come to the climax of the story - the place where God and Jonah put all their cards on the table and explain their hearts. It is an amazing and convicting picture of the human heart, and how much can go wrong there if we misunderstood the honor and responsibility of being chosen and start t…

Jonah 3 Who is the greatest evangelist of all time? Is it Billy Graham, Ray Comfort, or D.L. Moody? The Apostle Paul, or Barnabas? There are so many people we've never heard of, but who have reached whole tribes and nations with the Gospel. History has forgotten their names, but heaven hasn't. Most of the time, we reach others in small numbers and …

Jonah 1 This message begins a series looking at the life of Jonah, an Old Testament prophet who ended up at odds with God's mercy.

Jonah's story shows us that God's call to evangelism is i…

Psalm 139 We often tell people that they are totally unique and that God knows each of us absolutely and perfectly. The thing nobody talks about is that God's deep knowledge of us can be either comforting or irritating, depending on how we feel about him! If we are trying to hide secrets or feel like we will be rejected if people really know us, th…

Ephesians 3 Throughout our stint in ministry, Sunshine has seen again and again that we can't do anything apart from God's empowering; often, he calls us to do things that make us aware of our limitations, and in those moments, his power really stands out!

1 Timothy 6:11-21 Neither Sunshine Community Church, nor our families, nor our city, nor this planet could endure a single moment apart from the generous and loving provision God offers us.

Romans 3 Through 100 years of history at Sunshine Church, we have definitely learned that God is faithful! Many times, we learned it because he was the only One who was...

John 6:1-15 When thousands followed Jesus into the wilderness to hear him teach, the practicalities of food and planning became very important.

In this passage, we see …

Daniel 1 This message is about Daniel and the example he sets of winsomely and courageously thriving in the midst of a culture different from the one in which he was raised.

2 Kings 22:1-20 Can you imagine becoming a public figure at the age of 8 - much less a king? It sounds like a recipe for pride, entitlement, and foolishness, but that's not what happened for King Josiah of Israel.
