First Fruits Prayer Service
Join us for the First Fruits Prayer Service which takes place every Monday at 10 A.M. in the sanctuary.  This is an opportunity for the Sunrise community to come together and pray over the church and ask God to use us as a blessing to everyone we meet.  A Bible study time will follow the prayer service.

Caroling/Children's Celebration
The congregation is invited to go caroling for selected church members around the Harrisonburg and Bridgewater areas on Sunday, Dec. 13. All are welcome, especially families with young children. The group will leave the church at 3 p.m. to go caroling, then come back to the church for a children’s Christmas celebration. Pizza and drinks will be provided by the church; please bring some Christmas treats to share if you plan to stay after caroling. We hope you’ll plan to join us as we offer to others the gift of Christmas joy through music! 

Christmas Eve Service
The church will hold its Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on Thursday, Dec. 24, at 7 p.m. Come gather with us as we welcome Christ’s arrival through carols, a special children’s story, and lighted candles while singing “Silent Night” together. Communion will also be observed during the service. 

Ladies Night Out/Men's Breakfast
Ladies Night Out takes place on the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm.  (Dutch-Treat)  
Our "special" December Ladies Night Out will be on Thursday, December 10th at 6:00 p.m. at Traditions. We will have a Chinese gift exchange for those who would like to participate. Gift amounts should be $5.00 or so and no more than $10.00. Again, I will need everyone to RSVP to me by
noon on Wednesday, December 9th so I can let them know how many to set up for.  The buffet price for that evening is $10.99 and that includes your drink and dessert.

Men's Fellowship
 takes place on the third Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm.  (Dutch Treat)
The next Men's Fellowship will be on Thursday, December 17.  More information will be given in the church bulletins.

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.

Outreach Projects
Open Doors
The Outreach team would also like for everyone to begin saving shampoo and lotion sample bottles (found in motels, etc.) during the summer for the church's collection drive for Open Doors (formerly HARTS) in the fall.
