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.
