NEWS & EVENTS

Check out Sunrise Church's news and happenings.

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

NEW STEP BY STEP FROM TRUSTEES - DISHWASHER

From large events to regular gatherings, the church has a need for a fast, efficient, and effective dishwasher.  Susan Slider’s Events Team recommended the Noble Warewashing dishwasher to Trustees at a cost of $3,089 plus installation.  Those who hand wash dishes here will be pleased to know that it washes and sanitizes a rack full of dishes in 1.5 minutes for a normal wash and in less than 5 minutes for an extra-heavy wash.  This will benefit UMM, UMW, MOPS, Students, and other internal and external groups.  Lance and Brenda Miller have offered a 2 for 1 MATCH for any donations made to this effort!  If you have any questions, please contact any member of the Board of Trustees, Chairman Marie Hole, or Teri Alcorn in the church office.

SEEKING HELP WITH 2019 GATHERING

Sunrise is hosting the Mountain Sky Conference’s 2019 District Gathering at 9:30am to 3:00pm on Saturday, March 30, and help is needed with greeting and hospitality, providing a continental breakfast for participants, lunch set up, and clean up.  If you have the ability to help, please sign up for a shift by calling the church office at 719-598-7013 or emailing teria@sunriseumc.com.

MATCHBOX - ULTIMATE GAME NIGHT

LA VETA MISSION TRIP

The Spring Creek Fire in Southern Colorado raged from June 27, 2018, until July 31, 2018 and burned 108,045 acres of land in Huerfano and Costilla Counties, on both sides of Hwy 160 between the towns of La Veta and Fort Garland.  This land included beautiful peaks, wildland, and residential areas. Now the area is trying to recover from the burned trees and structures, deal with flash flooding, and clean up their waterways. Sunrise has the opportunity to partner with La Veta UMC to help in this cleanup and restoration.  Come join the team! Applications are available at the church and HERE

AERATION FUNDRAISER FOR STUDENT MINISTRIES

Please support our students participating in the La Veta Mission Trip by hiring them to do lawn aeration ($40) or starter fertilizer application ($10).  Available dates are April 26-28 and May 3-5, weather permitting.
