If you can help them, contact Jim Pagonis at pagonis@aol.com to sign-up to be a driver or rider for the pickup trips to Rocky Ford on the Saturday preceding each of the sale dates and help to set-up, sell produce, and tear down on Sunday sale dates.

BIBLE PRESENTATION

Every year, Sunrise gives Bibles to all 3rd grade and preschool students!  This year, we invite you to join us Sunday, September 8, during the Children’s Moment at the 9:45 service.  Children will receive their Bibles and be prayed over. Please register your children ahead of time by checking in at the Children’s Desk in the atrium or by emailing children’s names and ages to Kelsey at childrensministry@sunriseumc.com.

EMPTY NESTERS

Are you the parent of a college student?  If so, join the Empty Nesters for fellowship and assembling care packages for our college students.  They meet four times each school year: early September, early December, early February, and late April.  Each parent (or set of parents) provides an item to include in the care package for each college student. Contact Sherry at 719-232-1941 or sherrydrew00@yahoo.com if you would like to join in this fun ministry.

SEEKING LONG-ARM QUILTER

Sunrise’s Piece Keepers Quilt Group is in need of a long arm quilter to assist with completing the Service Quilts for Sunrise veterans.  They provide quilt tops, backing, and batting, but need someone who will donate their time to complete the tops. If you are able to help, please call Robin Thorne at 719-487-3278.
