UMC Missionary Support

Each year, Sunrise sponsors a missionary that has been recommended by the NC Conference of the United Methodist Church. At the beginning of the year, the Missions committee reviews and discusses potential candidates, and then selects the missionary that we feel most strongly led to support. We make a significant contribution through the Missions budget, thanks to your generous giving! This donation helps to fund this missionary’s work in the name of Jesus Christ, which touches the lives of many people.

Please keep our missionaries in your prayers!

This year we are supporting Ellyn Dubberly and her husband Brian Dubberly, who are missionaries in El Salvador from Rocky Mount, NC. For more information on their mission projects, or to contact them with a word of encouragement, click on their websites below.–Ellyn-Benson
