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

TRINITY'S NEW STUDY

The Trinity Class has begun a new study of the Book of Acts.  They meet on Sundays at 8:30am in room 224. Roger Horrigan will facilitate the discussion and they will use the Bible as their primary source.  All are welcome!

WARM CLOTHING DRIVE THANKS!

Sunrise Missions Team would like to once again thank the congregation for their support of the Warm Clothing Drive that just ended.  With your generosity we were able to spread throughout the community: over 200 adult men’s and women’s jackets, 38 NEW JACKETS to High Plains Elementary School, 23 youth jackets to Marian House, 3 boxes of brand new scarves (over 300 scarves), many bags and boxes of hats, gloves, mittens, and winter clothing to multiple agencies within the community. The timing of the drive was blessed by God as winter arrived in a rush.

SAGES (Sunrise Association of Genial Elders, a group for folks 55+) will meet at 10:00am on Wednesday, November 6, in room 210.  Rick Hunt will make a safety presentation. Please bring a snack to share.

Thanksgiving is “just around the corner.”  The Sunrise Missions Team will once again sponsor a Turkey Giveaway on November 24.  Partnering with Mercy’s Gate, we will give away a turkey and a grocery gift card to 75 neighbors.  Please stop by the Sales Counter in the atrium Sundays through November 17 to purchase a $35.00 grocery gift card and/or sign up to donate a turkey.  Due to limited freezer space, bring frozen turkeys on November 24. Contact Sunnie Anderson at billandsunnie@aol.com if you have questions.

Sunday, November 24, offers an opportunity to help UMW with the many missions they support, while enjoying homemade pies and casseroles.  Donations requested for pies are $12 for apple, cherry, and pumpkin, $14 for rhubarb, and $15 for pecan. Donations requested for casseroles are $10.  Please look for this popular annual sale in the atrium before and after the 8:30 and 9:45 services on Sunday, November 24.

CAREPORTAL

CarePortal continues to grow in Colorado.  They have impacted over 5,000 children so far and they offer a big THANKS to anyone who’s helped.  If this is your first time to hear of CarePortal, please go to careportal.org and check it out or contact Annette Grundmeier at careportal@sunriseumc.com or 719-238-7865. They’d love to have more people helping.  CarePortal is hosting a Christmas Party on Saturday, December 7, at Pulpit Rock Church and could use your help. They expect over 300 people of all ages, some 80 families that have taken in family members in need.  They would like to send each family home with a new board game or puzzle that they can enjoy as a family. There will be a box in the atrium to collect these if you feel you can help. Also, let Annette know if anyone has a party skill such as face painting, making animal balloons, performing magic tricks, etc. they could share it that evening.  Thanks for keeping these needy children in your prayers!

CARE CORNER

Pray for Diana Beverlin, Carole Allee, and Lynn Marshall, and for the physical, emotional, and spiritual welfare of law enforcement, first responders, our military personnel, and their families.  

Please pray with John Alcorn, his family, and friends following the recent passing of his mother, Betty Alcorn.

Please notify Rev. Olon Lindemood at prayerandcare@sunriseumc.com of all hospitalizations or if you know someone who needs to be in Care Corner.
