About Sunbury Bible Church
Sunbury Bible Church in Northumberland, Pennsylvania, exists to give glory to God in all that they do. Empowered by the Bible, they seek to disciple Christians to a mature faith and equip them to reach out to all people in love. SBC demonstrates this love for others in a variety of ways, including engaging in their local community, partnering with like-minded ministry organizations to support missionaries across the globe, and sending teams of church members on short term mission trips. The church reaches out to the Northumberland community by planning vacation Bible school every summer, participating in Operation Christmas Child, putting on a fall festival, and hosting informative guest speakers on a variety of topics. The church also serves their community through the ministry of Sunbury Christian Academy, a private not for profit school that integrates Biblical values with a quality academic program for preschoolers through the twelfth grade. SBC ministers to the members of their own congregation by hosting weekly worship services as well as individual programs for children, youth, young professionals, and adults throughout the week. In every area of their ministry, SBC seeks to mobilize its members to pray and give financially in order to impact the hopeless and hurting in Northumberland and around the world.
The core mission of Sunbury Bible Church is to love God, reach out to others, and love everyone. They believe that by serving others, they are serving God. In 2017, SBC decided to serve both their congregation and creation by installing environmentally-friendly solar panels. The 35,000 square-foot facility used by SBC is over 27 years old, and the church recently made the decision to replace the roof of their aging building. The leadership team decided to take advantage of the necessary repairs to install solar panels, an investment that will enable the church to be good stewards of the earth as well as their finances according to Jim Kohl, the chair of the deacons committee. By choosing to fund their project with CollectiveSun, SBC was able to have a 207.4-kilowatt solar energy system installed on their building. The installation is estimated to save them $700,000 over the next 25 year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 150 tons in the first year alone. Jim Kohl explained that switching to solar energy will allow SBC to expand the vision of the church by saving energy dollars which in turn will mean more money available for other ministries. Kohl said that SBC has been “very happy with the process” of working with CollectiveSun to fund their solar project and further the church’s mission to serve God by serving others.
