Local Outreach

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, in the name of Jesus Christ.  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.  The culmination of this effort had led us to focus on providing overnight housing for any kid in the Beaverton School District, who needs it. 

The first phase of this plan is to partner with the City of Beaverton to support the launch of Family Promise of Beaverton. (FPB) is modeled after a successful national program that 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.

This new ministry focus on homeless kids & families dovetails beautifully with the additional existing compassion ministries listed below

Family Promise Host WEEK

Host Week: Jan 6-13

Sunset Pres. hosts up to 4 families in our church 4-6 times a year. During these “host weeks” we provide breakfast, lunch and dinner a place for the families to sleep. Each “Host week” requires ~60 volunteer slots to be filled. These slots include Setup, Tear Down, Evening Host, Dinner Host, Breakfast Host, Overnight Host and Laundry Host. Each person must first be trained and once trained, may sign up for one or more volunteers slots.

  • 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.
