At Sunrise, we believe we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. As a church, our members share God’s love through a variety of local, national, and worldwide mission ministries. Where is God leading you? What strengths have you been blessed with? Sunrise has many opportunities to participate directly in the outreach work that appeals to you!
