Priscilla Circle has prepared Christmas decorated bags and jars of their delicious bean soup mix. Each item comes with a variety of dried beans and peas, seasoning packet, and preparation instructions. They make a great gift or a meal on a cold day.
 
They will be selling them today at The Loft at 5:00pm and in the atrium on the dates shown in the image above. You can also order online by clicking HERE or by using the QR Code above; pay for your order when you pick it up.

To all of you that have taken tags from the tree, there are 2 Sundays left to return those gifts. All are due back by December 12. We have also extended the time to make donations to students at Kenya Methodist University to December 12. We are so grateful for your help with these projects.  If you have questions, please contact Annettee Grundmeier at amgrundmeier@icloud.com.

Join Us for In-Person Sunday Worship

Sunrise offers in-person worship services on Sundays at 9:00 and 10:30 AM
 
There will be a children’s message at both services. Children’s Ministry offers Sunday School at 10:30 AM for children in preschool through 5th grade. When arriving at church for the 10:30 service, check in all children who will attend Sunday School at the Children’s Desk in the atrium.
 
The nursery (room 101) will be open during worship services to care for children birth to 3 years old.
 
We are strongly encouraging the wearing of masks, even if you are vaccinated. If you prefer to be socially-distanced, we still have an area on the north side of the sanctuary marked for that.
 
We will now offer a limited number of printed simplified Orders of Worship. To receive one, just ask an usher when you enter the sanctuary for worship.
 
Aim your smartphone’s camera at the QR code posted in the atrium to view our electronic Order of Worship. You can also click HERE on Sunday morning before you leave home. The prompt will take you to an electronic Order of Worship.

Live-Streamed Worship

Live-streamed worship will now be available on Facebook at 10:30 AM mountain time on Sundays (www.facebook.com/sunrisechurch) and available on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzarapWHRC9ngQ4eL9ykJdA) following.
