Summer Activities – 2021

Our summer was a great time for relationship building and enjoying a focus on our kids !  We had 8 weeks of weekly SUMMER FUN nights with games and bible time ,  and we also had an outreach at the end of summer FAMILY FUN DAY with our partners the Dream Center.  These were valuable times of sharing the gospel.



Our moms met each month for our gatherings but we included the kids also for a pool day,  outdoor movie night,  park days.  Relationships were built as we enjoyed time outside.


Pine Valley Camp was yet another great week with 39 kids attending .  As always they did a great job of sharing the truth of Gods word and helping the kids understand HIS love for them.  We had 13 kids make a commitment to Christ.

I truly believe our commitment to camp over these years will change lives for eternity ! We are grateful for a great summer of ministry .

Pine Valley – 2021

We have returned from an awesome week of summer camp.  We received so many donations to sponsor our kids for camp.  We took 39 kids and teens.  The theme was THE WAY – fighting the lies the world throws at us and following Jesus and His word.

13 kids made commitments to Christ and grow in their walk.  It was a great week of fun in the pool, waterslide, canoes,  peddle carts, archery.   The relationships with the counselors that pour into the kids makes all the difference.  What a great staff Pine Valley has each year.

We had 7 teens from our group chosen for CIT training another week this summer. This is for those who have shown a desire to grow and be mentored.  Pray for them , we are proud of them.

Now the work begins as we follow up with these families and children , and make deeper connections. Helping them in their desire to follow Christ.  Please pray for these children to be strong in the days ahead.

A big thanks to all the hands that make this week happen here at Sonshine with registration, nurses, Uhaul drivers, loaders and unloading, donating lunches and supplies as well as praying.  You are all appreciated as you give unto the Lord. You are making a difference. 

Praising God for His work in hearts !

Holiday Review – 2020

Holiday Review               

Sonshine was blessed to be able to help families over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

While we continued our weekly meals and food assistance; we also helped our ministry families with holiday boxes and gift cards donated by many generous people.  150+  presents were purchased to help families at Christmas.

Sonshine Community Christmas

Dec 6 we held  an outdoor Nativity event on our property and lot.  There were over 25 volunteers that helped us tell  the Christmas story outside on a beautiful cold night.  Each family came inside for a family picture that we printed , framed and delivered before Christmas.  A long standing church baked individual cookie packages for each person.

We were thankful we could celebrate the True meaning of Christmas for our families and neighborhood.



Hang 5

meets each Tuesday and our families have remained committed to participate in this program.  We help with homework, read and do a Bible time all the while we build relationships.  Lots of fun each week.  The kids had  great Christmas!

Propel School Painted Our Wall!

Propel School McKeesport has been a partner to Sonshine for many years. They helped monthly at our Food bank for many years and this year did an art project on our wall!

Mr. Gentile had the 7th grade class submit entries for the wall representing our ministry and the community. We picked from those entries and came up with this beautiful mural.

What a difference it makes on Evans Ave. We had beautiful weather and such a great group of students and teachers.

Thank you Propel!
