Worship Plan for Fall/Winter Please Read Carefully!
Meteorologist are predicting a warm Fall and Winter. Since outside is the safest in regards to COVID we will continue our outdoor worship as long as the weather is accommodating at 10:30am near the playground.
Feel free to bring anything you like to keep you warm except a flask! :)
If it is going to be too cold or they are calling for precipitation, we will:
1) Have a 9 AM Abbreviated Drive-In Service in front of the church (unless heavy rain)
2) Have an indoor 10:30 AM worship service in the sanctuary which will be aired on Facebook live
Please check Sunrise's or G3's Facebook page each Friday or Saturday as the details will be posted for the coming Sunday!
The below safety precautions will be followed for our indoor worship services;
1) Temperatures will be taken at the door. So please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early!
2) Windows and doors will be opened to maximize air flow so dress warm!
3) Masks must be worn the entire time.
4) We will have a scaled down praise team.
5) Chairs will be socially distanced.
6) We will limit capacity
* We may go to a reservation system depending on the indoor attendance. Since space is limited if you arrive late, you may be asked to watch online. We ask for your patience as we work out the "kinks."
**If you are not able to wear a mask while in the building, we lovingly ask you to participate in our drive in service or worship online.
DRIVE IN WORSHIP SERVICE IS NOW AVAILABLE EVERY SUNDAY!
If the service is outside, it will be at 10:30am.
If weather dictates an indoor service, we will have our abbreviated drive in service at 9am.
Weekly Online Services!
A live stream Sunday worship service can be found at either the Sunrise Facebook page or
at 10:30 am.

Faith and Family
How many times have you sat in a room with your family, with everyone on a device or watching TV? Do
you struggle with how to start conversations with the kids or the younger generation in your family?
It is important to remember that we give kids the space to share whatever they want to share. Sometimes
it is easy for someone older to jump in and correct or attempt to sway their opinion. A gift of this increased time at home is the time to practice listening skills within your family. Here are some question/conversation starters:
If I could have any wish it would be…
What really makes me angry is…
I know God is listening to my prayers because…
The place I would like to visit when quarantine is over will be…
What I like best about myself…
If I had a million dollars…
My favorite Bible story or person in the Bible is...
Make sure everyone answers these questions! Hopefully it will spark wonderful conversation and some device-free time for your family.

Cancer Support Group
Cancer has caused much pain throughout our families and community. For some, it can be a long, hard journey of the unknown. And while it is not something we can fix, we can share the burden together and offer a space for prayer, dialogue, and emotional and spiritual healing. If you or someone you know needs a place to share their story or listen to the stories of others, come join us every 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm via zoom.
