THANK YOU!!
Our 2023 Weekend Events were a success!! Thank you thank you thank you to those who served, and
to those who attended!

At our Healing Event on August 12, Seven individuals offered their healing modalities and conducted 70
sessions that day! We are truly blessed to have such skilled and caring friends of Sunset Church who willingly
give of their time and talents to help others in need.

Six individuals gave one-hour presentations at our Spirit Talks event on September 9. Again, how
fortunate we are to have those among us who are knowledgeable, allowing us to reap the benefits of their
lifetimes of studies.

Rev. Charles Cox’s Journeys of the Soul class on October 21 was everything we hoped for and more!
Well attended, well received, delightful in every way, our beloved Charles delivers every time!

KEEPING UP WITH THE BOARD by President Karen Lyons
The Board will meet Feb. 4th. After the meeting we will have a service followed by potluck lunch in the dining
room. All are welcome to attend the Board meetings. I am looking forward to seeing you there.
There are currently two projects the Board is working on. We are working with a company from Salina to get
reliable internet access in the church building. Access in the building has been a challenge all along. We have
tried a number of things, but have been unsuccessful. We are still trying. Access will enable our ministers to
provide service remotely as well as broadcast from the church. I have been told anything is possible if you
throw enough money at it. This is a project that will be funded by our upcoming workshops.

The second project we are funding is an update to our electrical system. We have discovered an issue with
our service line. The pole that is owned by the Church is in danger of collapse. To remedy this issue, we can
replace the pole, or bury the lines and never face this issue again. The Board has opted to bury the remainder
of our lines. Several years ago all but these remaining three lines were buried. This project will complete the
job. It is costly, but will last and ensure trouble free service. The only overhead lines belong to Evergy and will
be their responsibility.

The Board is busy planning Camp 2024. Invitations will soon be going out to Workers. Now is the time to
contact the Board if there is a class topic you would like covered, something you would like to learn more
about. If you would like to teach a class, or request a specific presenter, contact the Board soon. Once the
process starts, the schedule fills up quickly.

The first event of 2024 will be here before you know it. The proceeds will be used to fund one of our projects.
Shiitake Mama has a fun time in store for us and I can’t think of a better way to start the year than a fun
weekend spent with you.

This is my least favorite time of the year. In fact, I find myself becoming depressed if I allow myself to focus on
things over which I have no control. I have to remind myself to stay in my lane. When I reflect on the
blessings I enjoy and the people in my life whom I love, I am amazed. Where did you all come from? I have
not yet attained the ability to fully realize the extent of the meaning of the message of Jesus: The Kingdon of
Heaven has come. It is in your heart. Minute by minute and day by day, I come to a better understanding.
You are a part of my Kingdon of Heaven because you reside with me always, in my heart. No matter what is
going on with others or in the world, all is well in the Kingdom of Heaven.
