We'd love for you to participate in one of our classes or events detailed below.

PLEDGE UPDATE

Thank you to all of our congregants who have already pledged their gift to the 2019 Stewardship campaign.  We are extremely grateful for your generosity.  If you have not done so, please prayerfully consider a commitment to Sunrise.  We need your support.  Pledge cards and writing utensils are available in pew/chair pockets, by the Joash boxes, or in the Church office.

Kathleen Achenbach, Director of Finance, kathleena@sunriseumc.com

TRINITY BIBLE SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS

Trinity Bible Sunday School Class is starting a new series on the book of Ezekiel led by David MacKay.  Trinity meets in room 224, 8:30-9:30am every Sunday.  Please join them and bring coffee and snacks from Fellowship Time if you wish.  If you have any questions, contact David at david.mackay@comcast.net.

 

STEP BY STEP SUCCESS!

Need a nice cool drink of water or need to fill your water bottle?  Celebrate with us that which was broken and now is fixed!  Enjoy our new water fountain between the bathrooms by the sanctuary, which was generously paid for through our latest Step by Step project.  Thank you to all who gave!  Our next ambitious step is to finish re-flooring the old bathrooms like the nice ones near the new water fountain.  We have one bathroom left to do in the back hall downstairs.  We are also working on a new light board for the Fellowship Hall.  To donate to these projects, write Step by Step in the memo of your check or give through the Sunrise app.  If you have questions, please contact any Trustee or Chairman Chris Morse at 719-660-6166 or cmorse73@gmail.com.

USHERS NEEDED

Would you like to serve as an usher?  Ushers hand out bulletins and Friendship Folders and collect offering during services.  They are scheduled by the Sunday of the month (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.) and the service (8:30am or 9:45am).  An Usher Coordinator is also being sought.  Extra ushers will be needed during special Advent events.  If you would like to join the Usher Team, please email Shawn at samcelheny@yahoo.com.

ANNUAL TURKEY AND GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY

It’s already time to begin to think about our Annual Turkey Giveaway!  This year, Mercy’s Gate expects to need more than 700 Thanksgiving turkeys.  The need is great and we will meet our obligation to Mercy’s Gate.  Every Sunday until the actual Giveaway on Sunday, November 18, the Sunrise Missions Team will be in the atrium selling $35 grocery gift cards and signing up folks to provide frozen turkeys for the Giveaway.
