In the summer of 2003, a group of about 30-40 people started meeting at Alward School on Sunday evenings. This group felt a calling by God to start a ministry defined by a vision of reaching out to the lost, the lonely, the bruised and the broken. Sunrise worship is creative celebration, designed to communicate the “old, old story of Jesus and his love” in fresh ways.
Sunday, October 19, 2003, marked the first Sunday of Sunrise Ministries. Pastor Dave Breen preached the first service, and on March 1, 2004, he was officially called to lead Sunrise Ministries as its Teaching Pastor. At that time there were 35 families that were Sunrise members.
Today over 100 families call Sunrise Ministries home. It is a vibrant and loving place where people feel welcomed and cared for the moment they step through the door. Sunrise continues to be a place that meets people where they are and helps them on their journey towards knowing Christ.
