Ministries

Sonshine has a wide variety of ministries for the entire family.  There’s a place for everyone to find inspiration, spiritual growth, excitement and FUN, and then be equipped to “serve” the Lord by ministering to others, according to the spiritual giftings God has placed within their lives. We have a vision of every person, not only receiving from the Lord, but also having space to “serve” Him in this multi-cultural, spiritually hungry society in which we live.

Music & Worship/Media Ministry

The Worship Ministry of Sonshine exists to praise and glorify God!

Our purpose is to create an atmosphere where believers can worship God in Spirit and in Truth, and where the lost are convicted and drawn to Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Through our praise and worship, we are given access to the very presence of God by the name of Jesus Christ. When we worship, God will respond! Worship isn’t just for Sundays, but worship is the lifestyle of the believer!

If you would like to get connected to the Worship Ministry or for more information, please contact Pastor Adam at: mradamdenny@yahoo.com or Office: (239) 694-8882

SCW SPECIAL PICS.001

Romans 10:17- So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

We believe that spoken word and song are two of the most important elements in a worship service.

Through the use of a sound system, projection, and lighting our goal is to enhance the worship service so that people can participate in singing worship songs, see the key scriptures, announcements, upcoming events, etc.

If you desire additional information about the Media Ministry or to get connected, please contact Bro. Chris Smith csmith10676@gmail.com

Hospitality Ministry

 The Hospitality Ministry consists of Ushers and Greeters.  In many ways, the ushers and greeters are the “face” of the church, the first ones that people see when they arrive and the last ones they see as they leave.

Greeters welcome people as they enter the facility, give them a bulletin and direct them to the Sanctuary, nursery/children’s service location, restrooms, as well as answer visitors’ questions and extend extra help in seating those who need the assistance.

Ushers serve in many of the same areas of Greeters, but in addition Ushers receive offerings/donations and get to proper location, get a count of people in attendance, present first time guests with special gift, as well as provide any additional assistance to the Pastor and/or guests. They also monitor the facility and parking lot for safety.

If you would like additional information about the Hospitality Ministry or to get connected please contact Ministry Leader Dwayne Stevens at pacesplace1@aol.com

Women's Jail Ministry

The Women’s Jail Ministry is concerned with sharing the love, the hope and the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to those behind bars.  We believe that through the power of Jesus Christ we can make a difference in the lives of female inmates in Lee County Florida.

Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:36 give us the basis for this ministry, “…I was in prison and you visited me…” We are called to share His love, hope and life-changing message to those behind bars.

Each week volunteers from Sonshine and other area churches minister to the female inmates in the Lee County Detention Center.  Through testimonies, the preaching of God’s word, prayer for salvation and deliverance we are seeing lives changed and transformed for the glory of God!
