As our church growes so will the ministries of the church. Listed below are a few of the viatal ministies of Sunnyside Baptist Church
Prayer is a relationship, wherein we humbly communicate, worship, and sincerely seek God's face, knowing that He hears us, loves us and will respond, though not always in a manner we may expect or desire. Prayer can encompass confession, praise, adoration, supplication, intercession and more.
In addition, our attitude in prayer is important. We must not be haughty, but humble (Ephesians 4:2; James 4:10; 1 Peter 5:6, etc.). Seen in this light, to "pray continually" (1 Thessalonians 5:17) means, in one sense, that we must always strive to have a prayerful attitude. Our prayers must come often and regularly, not from legalistic duty, but from a humble heart, realizing our dependence on God in every aspect of our lives.
"…for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7“
"Call upon me and I will answer you, and tell you great and mighty things that you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

We invite you to join us each Sunday morning as we study the Bible and diecover applicable truths that will change your life.Every Bible study group's goal is to Connect, Grow and Reach:
Connect...people to God through worship and the study of God's Word
Grow...believers through the teaching & proclamation of God's Word through the Sunday School small group ministry
Reach...our community and the world with the message of Jesus Christ through ministry & missions

Youth & Children Ministry
Children and teenagers will find a place that believes that they are the hope of America and the world! Our church is fully committed to raising up another godly generation of Christian servants. To that end, we provide weekly Sunday school classes, youth training times, teen soul winning, and other opportunities for service during these important years of development.
Music is a bedrock of worship in the congregation of believers. The Bible clearly teaches that those who know and love God, and who have been transformed by His saving grace, are to be salt, light and a testimony for Him by living a transformed life that glorifies God’s Holy nature.This transformation carries over in a practical way into the music and worship of the church. At Sunnyside Baptist we desire to minister music to the hearts and lives of our people in a way that will encourage them to live lives of blameless integrity.In our worship services we feature music of traditional hymns and lively gospel songs during congregational singing. spirited anthems, and our soloists and music groups use music that honors and reflects God’s holy, pure and glorious character.It is our belief that “worship is the entertainment of God, not the entertainment of man." Our place is to "glorify Him together." Reflecting this belief, the focus of our music and our worship at Sunnyside is upon the glory of God and His response – joy and rejoicing in heaven at the sincere praise of His people. Music Ministry is lead by Music Minister Bro Eddie Hardsiter.
