This Week's Message
What does it mean to "Love Like Jesus"? This week we begin a new series to explore how to love like Jesus, starting with forgiving as we've been forgiven.
Snacks For Schools
At SonLight, we understand that teachers and staff members work very hard to educate and help teach great values to the children of this community. As a token of appreciation, SonLight would like to occasionally donate some snacks and treats to the Teachers’ Lounges in our county. We have contacted multiple school administrators & got enthusiastic responses. Now we are asking the church to be the church to our local teachers and administrators. We will be accepting donations over the school year for the Teachers’ Lounges. (Fruit or veggie trays, cheese & crackers, granola bars, etc.)
Life Group Kickoff
We are excited to start life groups this fall. We are looking for hosts that are willing to open their homes once a week for a meal (potluck style). If you are willing & able, please contact the church office or email Sheila@SonLightCommunity.com. This session will officially kickoff the week of September 16th and end the week of November 18th. We will, in service September 9th, give vision and insight into what direction we see God leading us as a church. We want to see God move through you!
The next American Red Cross blood drive at SonLight is Wednesday, September 19, 12 pm - 5 pm. To schedule your blood donation appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS or go to redcrossblood.org, sponsor code “sonlightcc”.
Lost & Found
Please check to see if any of your items are in the lost & found at the Connection Center. We have Bibles (some with personalized notes, but no last name), coats/jackets, hats, umbrellas… Any unclaimed items will be donated to people in need at the end of September.

August Studies of the Month:
Adult Study: The Gospel of John Part 1 by Tony Evans
Despite what our culture may argue, there is only one hope that is truly trustworthy, and that is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Join Tony for this 12-session series that will draw you back to the essential truths of our faith and the life found in our King.
Youth Study: Prayer by Francis Chan
If God already knows everything, what's the point of praying? Why doesn't God always answer my prayers? Francis Chan will unpack what the Bible has to say about prayer, helping teens understand how they should pray, what they are called to pray for, and why God invites them to communicate with Him.
Children’s Study: 1st John - What is a Christian?
(August/September Study) With the help of some animated friends, Phil Vischer walks through the entire book of 1 John to answer the question, "What is a Christian?”
