Women's Bible STudy


Join us this FALL at Sunset Women’s Bible Study (Sept. 17 – Dec. 12, 2019)


When Jesus said that, “the Scriptures point to me,” (John 5:39), he was referring to the Old Testament, the Jewish Scriptures of that day. If you’ve ever wondered how the Old Testament is relevant to the New Testament, if you’ve struggled to see the Scriptures as a consistent whole, and if you would like to look at Jesus anew, this study is for you. Please join us this Fall, as we take a fresh look at the familiar stories of Genesis, allowing them to point us to Jesus, in The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis, by Mary Guthrie. Come as you are, ask tons of questions, or sit quietly and relax and listen…we look forward to connecting with you.

Small Groups

God is not simply saving individuals, but he is creating a family where relationships deeply matter.  We desire that all people live in an authentic faith community that fosters a vibrant and deepening relationship with God.
 
One of the primary ways we build relationships and cultivate fellowship with each other here is through a network of small groups While we are joined to all believers in the local church, Small Groups allow us to relate more deeply with a small number of people. 

Start a group:  to start a group, contact our Small Group leadership team to learn about Sunset groups and to sign up for an upcoming leader training group.  Then, gather a group of people – family members, friends from Sunset, co-workers, neighbors and get started!  We also provide training for individuals who are willing to meet and shepherd new people who are looking for a group.

MEN's Ministry

Sunset recognizes that Christian men often have difficulty forming strong relationships with other Christian men. It is evident from the Bible (e.g., Proverbs 27:16-18; Ecclesiastes 4:12), as well as Jesus’ lifestyle, that such interactions are essential. We all can lighten our struggles by sharing with others (Galatians 6:2). Sunset offers a variety of activities for men at all levels of spiritual maturity as well as outreach events for their friends. If you are not connected with other Christian men, try one or more of these groups and find your community at Sunset.

MEN'S MORNING WATCH


Saturdays 7 - 8:30 am

Church's East Entry – 2nd Floor – Student Center

Men of all ages meet on Saturday’s to enjoy a high-quality breakfast ($5 donation), great fellowship and a Bible-focused study that encourages openly discussing God’s Word and how to apply it in our daily walk with Jesus.

MEN'S SERMON DISCUSSION GROUP
Fridays 6:30 - 7:30 am, Village Inn in Beaverton
Our focus is to understand better and apply the Sunday message to our life - this includes Bible study, prayer, fellowship and care for each other. The discussion leadership is rotated between several of the regular attendees. There are currently about ten men regularly attending, but this is an open group, and all men are welcome. This men's group had been meeting for several years and strives to help men continue to grow as followers of Jesus.

RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS
Wednesdays 10:30 am - Noon
Righteous brothers, men over 60, meet each Wednesday from 10:30 am –12:00. The first half hour is fellowship and from 11:00 am to noon is Bible study. Approximately 8 - 14 men attend. This is a great place for men to connect and form a strong bond with other Christian men.
Contact Righteous Brothers leadership >

SMALL GROUPS
There are several groups of 5 - 8 men who meet regularly to grow in relationships with other men and God. The fellowship of other Christian men is a gift God wants to place in each man’s life for strength, encouragement, and protection. These groups meet at various locations weekday mornings or evenings.
Contact Small Group leadership >

FOR MEN ONLY (FMO)
Half of all men involved in church struggle with sexual purity issues. They fear to share this battle with their church leadership and community and so they live in daily shame, pain, and isolation –letting this addiction destroy their marriage and family. This is too big of a problem to ignore. FMO works with numerous churches and is making a difference. Hundreds of men have experienced change through Jesus' healing power. We meet in highly confidential small groups to encourage each other and to honestly share our struggles.

GPS Singles

GPS is a community for Single Adults (never married, divorced or widowed) ages 35-55 who want to grow spiritually, enjoy recreation and social activities and serve others together. No, we won’t “card you” if you are a year or two older or younger but we do ask that you respect our desire to be a community that ministers to the needs of people in that general age range.
We encourage Christ-like behavior and expect both men and women to treat one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, respect boundaries and encourage group friendships before pursuing a dating relationship.
(If you are currently separated and not divorced yet, we encourage you to take the time to heal and move through the divorce before joining a singles community)

Young Adults

Mission

Sunset is focused on helping young adults connect with others in God’s Word and intentionally be the Church through involvement with Care Groups and the Church body.


Care Groups

Groups gather in a church member’s home and in the community regularly and are great for fellowship and discipleship. Groups range from specific to gender to mixed gender.  

E-mail Rick Terletzky to join a group that is right for you >


Summer

During the summer we do a variety of activities that take place to engage those returning from college. We also create a summer package, "LightBox", that includes material for you to explore Christ’s calling for you during your personal time.  Talk to someone at the Next Steps Counter or contact Rick to get more information.


Projects

Follow The New Hope Podcast, as a group of young adults use Star Wars
as a way to share the gospel at an entry level. 

Sonshine Treasures Ministry

The mission of Sonshine Treasures is to share God's love with people who have intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and to equip them to become active participants in the Family of God, the church. 

 

Sonshine Treasures is a uniquely designed Sunday School class for individuals with special needs, ages 12 and older.  

 

Sonshine Treasures meets from 11 a.m. to noon every Sunday in the Fellowship Hall of Sunset Presbyterian Church.  Volunteers greet members as they are dropped off by Tri-Met lift buses, group home staff, or parents.

 

Members who choose to go to the Sanctuary join the Congregation in singing worship and praise songs.  Following this time, class members return to the classroom where they enjoy more singing, celebrate birthdays, have a snack, share prayer requests, and hear Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments.  When the Congregation celebrates Communion our class also participates. 

 

Individuals who are interested in the Sonshine Treasure Ministry, either to volunteer, or for more information about this special ministry, are encouraged to call Jackie Davidson at 503-645-1611.
