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

BARBERSHOP CHORUS CONCERT

The “America the Beautiful” Barbershop Chorus is again offering a Spring Concert on Saturday, June 1, at 2:00pm and 7:00pm in the sanctuary. In addition to our own chorus and quartets, we will feature a great young quartet from California, “The Newfangled Four,” who placed in the top-ten at last year’s Barbershop International Quartet Contest. These guys are great singers and most entertaining! Tickets are on sale now: $10 in advance or $15 at the door, children 12 years and younger are free. You may purchase advance tickets in the atrium on Sunday mornings or at atbchorus.com.

CHANGES TO ELECTRONIC GIVING

We are in the process of changing our electronic giving vendor.  Effective June 1, 2019, our app will temporarily disappear. To continue to give through your smartphone, text 719-270-4478 and follow the instructions.  Our website will take you directly to the new vendor. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will have a new and improved app and giving vendor soon. As always, thank you for your financial support of Sunrise.  If you have questions please contact me at kathleena@sunriseumc.com or 719-598-7013.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

Join Sunrise Children’s Ministry June 17-21, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, for VBS!  Kids will be challenged to raise their game because knowing God and trusting in Jesus fills each of us with the Fruit of the Spirit through our theme POWER UP.  There will be crafts, games, snacks, and more. Registration and Volunteer sign-up is now open at sunriseumc.com. For more information, email childrensministry@sunriseumc.com.

SUMMER OF LOVE

The Summer of Love is a new once-a-month opportunity for members of Sunrise to help others. The first project will be in La Veta, CO. Devastated by last summer’s Spring Creek Fire and concerned with a summer of flooding, La Veta needs our help. Please consider joining our Mission Team June 7-8 for a mitigation weekend. Food and lodging will be provided. Cost is $20 per family. Please email Sam at coloradorebuilds@sunriseumc.com.
