Serve Groups

We encourage all to serve within their God-given giftedness and calling so that we are intentionally expressing God’s love both within the church and outside the church. Serve groups are a meaningful, short term, mid sized group opportunity for you to explore serving our community while making new friendships within Sunset.

Next Serve Groups will be in February 2018

    In 2016 we took a church-wide survey and one of the key results was the heart of our congregation to “intentionally provide direct services to the marginalized in our society.” We took this as God’s leading our church and went to work to create focused ministry projects with tangible goals and the necessary funding to achieve them.  This this effort had led us to focus on providing overnight hospitality and shelter for kids who need a place to stay.  The first phase of our plan supports the launch of Family Promise of Beaverton. (FPB) is modeled after a successful national program which uses existing community resources to provide safe transitional living arrangements for families.  Sunset is donating space and finances to open a Day Center onsite and opening our church for overnight hospitality (meals and sleeping space) for 3-5 homeless families (up to 14 people) four weeks of the year.  We want every Sunset attender to serve with Family Promise this year whether it’s by making dinner once or serving weekly in the Day Center- there are lots of options.
