At Sonrise, we have a lot going on. At all points in time we have ongoing ministries that are reaching out to the children, youth, and adults of all ages. On Sundays we have Sunday School at 9:30AM and Services at 10:40AM and 6:00PM. During all of our services we offer a nursery so you can worship without worrying too much about your baby or toddler. Then on Wednesday we have a children’s discipleship program, the Youth Group meets, and also an Adult Bible Study and Prayer Meeting. All of that begins at 7:00PM. Wednesday we also offer a free meal for anyone before service that begins shortly after 6:00PM.
As if that is not enough already. We have a women’s missions group called Sonrise Sisters. They meet every month to discuss upcoming missions projects and how to promote missions inside our church.
At various times throughout the year we also host numerous men’s and women’s Bible Studies at our church and in our homes.
We are actively engaging our communities through the benevolent efforts of the Bonne Terre Ministerial Alliance. This is a group that seeks to meet the physical needs of the community through various financial and material goods support. The BTMA also puts us in contact with other nonprofit ministries forging greater bonds and allowing us to further expand the Kingdom of God in the Bonne Terre area. The BTMA also hosts the annual Christmas Food Basket give away at Sonrise. They are also responsible for bell ringing for Salvation Army.
Last but not least are the many things that happen only once throughout the year. We host a VBS every summer that sees over 100 kids attend and many salvations. We have different church camps for boys, girls, and youth every summer. We go on a yearly adult mission trip to another country. We plan smaller mission trips for the youth inside Missouri. We host a free yard sale inside our church gym every year. We host a massive Easter Egg hunt for the kids. We show up at the various area festivals and handout free bottles of water.
Here’s the deal. Whatever God is calling you to be a part of, at Sonrise, we have a ministry for you to pour yourself into.
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” – Colossians 3:17
