The Sunrise Community will offer a gift to Kenya Methodist University on World Communion Sunday, October 6.  The funds will be used to purchase goods and services in Kenya to put money into the Kenyan economy and to avoid shipping costs.  Please prayerfully consider what gift you can contribute. Envelopes are available at the Welcome Desk if you would like to make a donation TODAY.  Together we can make a significant impact (Acts 1:8).



Join us THIS Wednesday! Everyone is invited to our new Family Experience at 6:00-7:30pm in Fellowship Hall.  There will be worship, a message, and small groups dedicated to adults, high school students, middle school students, and elementary and preschool students.  There will also be childcare for those who are age 3 and younger. Our theme for the year is IGNITE PASSION! What inspires your family? What keeps you motivated?  Come join our community and build friendships while discovering ways to deepen your relationship with Christ. Questions? Contact Beth at bethj@sunriseumc.com.


Join us for the re-launch of our Young Adult Group:  Ablaze! We’re a college-aged and beyond group for those looking to connect in the next step of their spiritual journey.  Our mission statement is “Hearts, Minds, and Souls on Fire for God” and we seek to engage with the Word through logical, philosophical, and faith-guided study of who God says that He is. Our first meeting is Tuesday, September 3, from 6:30-7:30pm in room 218, and we will meet every other Tuesday after that.  For more information, please contact Gabby at gabbys@sunriseumc.com.
