Sunnyside Baptist Church: Toccoa Georgia
What is your Church like?
We are a group of imperfect people seeking to grow closer to God, grow closer to each other, and grow as individuals. We love, encourage, and pray for one another, and we are welcoming to people who want to join our fellowship. Our people are from all walks of life, all stages of life, and a variety of backgrounds. There is a place for you, where you will fit with us at Sunnyside.
How should I dress?
Dress like you dress. We do not ask you to wear anything special. There is no dress code at Sunnyside. We have some that wear ties to worship. There are others who wear jeans and a tee-shirt. We want you to be comfortable, and we want you to know, we will not judge you on your appearance. We care more about you than your attire.
What do you expect of me when I come?
We do not place an expectation on you on your first visit. We will not single you out during worship. We just want you and your family to be with us and allow our Worship or Bible Study to impact you.
What can I expect of you?
You can expect us to care about you. You can expect us to be welcoming to you and your family. You can expect us to allow you and your family to join in and be apart of us.
What type of worship do you have?
As we begin to regather in worship during the pandemic, we currently have two worship services to promote social distancing in worship. We have a 10:00 am. Contemporary Worship Service led by our Youth Worship Leader Corey Phillips on guitar and Wayne Phillips on drums. Also, we have a Traditional Worship Service led by our Choir Director James King at 11:00 am.
We would love to have you join your heart with ours in worship.
What do you have for my kids?
The ministries listed below are suspended right now during this pandemic, but we have begun to reopen worship, and we hope the pandemic ends soon, so we can get our ministries going again. But this will give you idea of our children and youth ministires when they are rocking and rolling.
We love kids. Sunnyside has a variety of ministry opportunities for children. Sundays at 10:00 am. there is a Bible Study class for each age group to teach them the Word of God. On Wednesdays at 6:15 pm. we have Children's Choir, and our children's choir sings each week in our morning worship. We also have a children's sermon in morning worship. Also, on Wednesday's at 6:45 pm. our boys attend RA's, girls GA's, and our preschoolers Mission Kids, which teaches our children about missionaries and mission work. They teach the kids that being a Christian is something you do as well as something you are.
Sunnyside also has an active Youth Ministry lead by Chris Ivey. They have Bible Study on Sunday. They have Youth Fellowship and Worship in Wednesdays. Also, on Sundays, our Youth Worship Team leads our Call to Worship in our Morning Worship Service. We also have youth singing in the Choir and involved in other ministries throughout the church. We believe our young people are not just the future, but also the present of the Church.
Our Children's and Youth Ministry both have special events throughout the year, so check the calendar and get involved.
What do you have for me?
We have a place for fresh starts and new beginnings. We have a place for you to find encouragement and compassion. Because again, we are a group of imperfect people just trying to grow each day through the grace of God through Jesus Christ. We have a variety of ministries from Worship to Bible Studies to Special Events to Prayer and so much more where you can be encouraged to grow. Come and get as involved as you like, and we would be privileged to help you on your journey towards God and towards salvation and towards growth as a person and a disciple of Christ.
