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

This Week


Thank you to all who donated time and money to our first set of updated bathrooms!  Last week Trustees painted the men’s and women’s bathrooms on the first floor by the sanctuary, beautiful new flooring was put down, and new mirrors, faucets and water lines were installed.  Stop by and see the amazing transformation!  Trustees would like to continue this for the rest of the bathrooms.  They also want to replace the water fountain that is currently out of order.  You may make donations to Step by Step in the offering plate or with the app.  Thank you for your support!


For good food and fellowship, sign up today to participate in Tables of Eight on Friday, July 6.  The Host (or Host Couple) provides the home, main dish, and beverages.  The other attendees are assigned a dish to bring.  Sign-up sheets are in the Friendship Folders, at the Sign-up Counter in the atrium, and outside the Admin Office on 2nd floor.  Call Cindy at 719-282-0424 with questions.  This event is held on the first Friday of each month.


Children’s Ministry invites children and their parents to bring friends and snacks for summer fun at beautiful, new John Venezia Park, 3555 Briargate Parkway.  Popsicles will be provided.  The fun happens at 12:30pm on June 24, July 8 and 22, and August 5.  For more information, email Kelsey at childrensministry@sunriseumc.com.

Looking Ahead


Family and friends are invited to participate with the Sunrise Choir and the Soli Deo Gloria Choir in singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” at the Sky Sox baseball game on Tuesday, June 26 at 6:00pm.  Don’t want to sing?  No problem, you can still join the fun!  Want to practice?  Come to the sanctuary on Monday, June 25, at 7:00pm.  Tickets are for sale in the atrium on Sunday mornings and in the church office during business hours.


Saturday, July 7 (and the 1st Saturday of every month), join Sunrise members and the not-for-profit group “More than a Meal” to feed and serve the needy at Legacy Wesleyan Church, 502 N Walnut St.  Meet in the Sunrise parking lot at 7:30am to carpool; return by 10:30am.  Call Sam at 719-963-7853 to RSVP or for further info.


Uprising is an opportunity for students 4th grade and up to come together and celebrate their individuality.  Join us July 27-29 at John Wesley Ranch.  Moving into Middle School and High School can be tricky, but it’s much easier when you do it with support and friends.  We will be focusing on building relationships, getting to grow in relationship with God, and celebrating summer.  If you have any questions or want to register, email Kelsey at childrensministry@sunriseumc.com.


Rev. Olon and Dena are leading a tour to the Holy Land with an extension option to visit the Valley of the Kings and Queens.  The tour departs in February 2019.  Check out the trip brochure here.  For more information, email olon@sunriseumc.com.
