Ministries

There are many areas at Sonshine to get involved. Don’t let your connection just be a weekend experience. One of the best steps you can take in building relationships is to plug in to a ministry team and begin serving. Whether you’re brand new to it all or have a great skillset to offer, everyone is welcome at the table!

The first step to getting plugged in is through Growth Track.  For more information about Growth Track, check out the Growth Track Page under the “About Us” tab.

SonKids Ministries

 

Children’s Pastors: Steve & Lisa Speer
SonKids Church (ages 5-12)
SonKids Nursery (up to age 4)
Sundays at 10AM

SonKids Ministry is all about connecting children to God on their level and laying the foundation of spiritual development for their life.  Our goal is for each child that enters SonKids Ministry to have an encounter with God.  Throughout the worship songs, Bible lessons, and activities, the message is about shining for Jesus, the Son of God!

 SonKids Church uses Elevate Kids Curriculum.  Elevate is a Bible curriculum that offers creative teaching through fun characters, games, age-appropriate discipleship activities and kids worship music for  children. Our goal is for kids to remember the Bible Lesson and Main Point they learn during children’s church,  because those will help the children remember how God wants them to live!

SonKids Nursery provides care for children up to 4 years old.  Each week children will engage in songs, activities & crafts with age appropriate lessons to teach them Bible stories & characters, and most of all about salvation and the love of Jesus!

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 is made up 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 usually the last ones they see as they leave.

Greeters welcome people as they enter the facility, get 1st time guest info, give them a bulletin and direct them to the Sanctuary, Nursery/Children’s Mervice locations, restrooms, as well as answer visitor’s questions and extend extra help in seating those who need the assistance.  The goal is to make all guests feel extremely welcomed.

Ushers serve in many of the same areas of Greeters, but in addition, Ushers collect the tithes/offerings, pray over it, assist in counting monies, 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 Kalab Morris at rockingkmcattle@gmail.com
