Stephen Farrar Licensing Service
We are proud to announce that a licensing service was held on January 11, 2015 during our worship service for our music director, Stephen Farrar.  Executive district minister John Jantzi was on hand to lead the service.  We are happy to celebrate the call that Stephen has in his life for ministry in the Church of the Brethren, and we eagerly look forward to seeing what God has in store for Stephen as he continues his journey in faith!  Photo highlights of the licensing service and luncheon that followed for Stephen can be viewed on our Facebook page:

Church Anniversary Sunday
Sunrise will celebrate its 14th anniversary on Sunday, February 8.  A special anniversary service will take place at 10 am, followed by a luncheon at 11 am (no Sunday School).  We hope you and your family will make plans to join us on this milestone at Sunrise!

Children's Activities
Our Children's Church meets on the second Sunday of each month from September through May.  Following the children's story in the sanctuary, children from preK through fifth grade are invited to meet upstairs in the Sunday School room for Children's Church.  If you are willing to help with this great experience, contact Lauren Puffenbarger.

Harvest Table/My 2 Cents Worth
The Harvest Table is open for garden items or baked goods that will go towards the Global Food Crisis Fund.   My 2¢ Worth Jar sits on the table in the Entryway each Sunday for your donation to help alleviate hunger in Africa. 

Prayer Chain
Please submit Prayer Chain concerns to either Lura Ritchie or Cheryl Dean.

Upper Room Devotions
Copies of the new Upper Room devotional (January-February) are now available on the entryway table; please feel free to take a copy.
