Jesus devoted his life to serving, helping and healing people.
He embraced the forgotten, loved the rejected and had compassion on the broken. God designed us to carry this same heart and provide spiritual hope and practical help for the lost and hurting people in our world.
God’s Mission is Our Mission
God is on a mission to change people’s lives and he invites us to join him. We embrace the privilege of sharing his message of grace and love with others. We rejoice when we see people experience the joy of becoming a follower of Christ. But it doesn’t stop there. This mission also calls us to spread his love to those around us by reaching out and blessing those in our world.
It Starts Right Here!
We believe our mission starts right here in our own backyard. That’s why we’re intentionally investing in our city – both financially in local organizations who are doing amazing work and in building relationships with the people of our city.

Arab American Learning Center
The AALC provides services and guidance to Arab and Afghan refugees who have settled in the Sacramento area. The center provides a wide range of services: basic transportation and social services assistance, childcare, women’s and youth groups as well as classes in English as a Second Language. The center also conducts outreach events such as summer camp at Alliance Redwoods, Soccer camp, Back to School outreach, and Thanksgiving and Christmas outreach events. Their goal is to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the Muslim refugees that God has brought to their community. But ultimately, the goal of the AALC is to lead the local refugees to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.
For the last two years, SunHills has supported the ‘Love Your Neighbor’ shoebox drive by providing Christmas shoeboxes for refugees via the Christmas outreach event. Attenders of SunHills have also supported the Thanksgiving outreach and provided basic transportation services to refugees through the AALC. We are looking to expand our partnership with the AALC in the coming year by participating in work days and/or other outreach opportunities.

A Heart for the Nations
Jesus left his followers with clear instructions: “Go… and make disciples of all the nations (peoples), baptizing them… and teaching them to observe all I have commanded you.” It is our earnest hope that all peoples come to hear and understand the life-giving message of Jesus. As a blessed people, we must never see our blessings as something to be hoarded or spent solely on ourselves. Instead, we understand that we have been blessed in order to bless all the families of the earth.
