This year’s theme is:

Welcome to Sunrise United Methodist Church where we “Share God’s Shining Light”, which is found in Jesus Christ (John 8:12)

Blessings to you all in the Powerful and Loving Name of Jesus,

Our Lord Jesus looked out and saw the multitudes of people milling around and was moved. Matthew 9:36 says “when he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” The Good News is in Christ we have a Shepherd who sees us and cares. He calls out to each one of us who are “thirsty” to come to him and drink. “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him/her (John 7:37-38).” All are welcome here at Sunrise church. Come join us as we fill that quenching of our soul together.

Words of encouragement from Pastor Jim

Blessings to you all in the Powerful and Loving Name of Jesus,

I am sending all of you who visit us here a word of encouragement. No matter where we find ourselves God is there and is working all things together for your good (Rom. 8:28). In these times it is easy to be anxious and fearful. Yet, we can hear Jesus say, “Peace, do not be afraid.” Our Lord knows what is happening and walks with us each and every step. Jesus said, “Come to Me all who are weary and heavy laden (burdened) and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”-Matthew 11:28-29. Please join us for worship on our Sunrise UMC Facebook page and YouTube. God gives us enough for today and will lead us through the wilderness to safety. Proclaim daily Psalm 91:1-7. Peace of Christ be with you.

Pastor Jim Mozley

Sunrise UMC Welcome From Our Pastor:

Hello and greetings in our Lord Jesus.

I am Pastor Jim Mozley here at Sunrise United Methodist Church. First, a bit about me. I grew up in Fillmore, California, a small citrus farming community. My father taught history, political science and other courses at our local high school and nearby community college. My mother, a former fashion model, was a homemaker. My great-grandfather was a missionary in Mexico, where my Grandma Mozley grew up and served the church. I am the youngest of four children, three brothers and my oldest sister. I am married to my lovely wife, Joy, whose father was a pastor for fifty years. Together we have four adult children, three boys and one girl. I am a Fuller Theological Seminary graduate. After my education I ministered for four years in Asia as a missionary assistant pastor. Following that stint I moved to Seattle, WA. in 1999. I have served in churches as a director of youth and education, deacon and chaplain. For three years I was a chaplain intern and resident at Seattle Veterans Hospital.

We invite you to join us at Sunrise, where we are Sharing God's Shining Light.

Our light starts with our dear Savior Jesus, whom God has sent to us. Jesus proclaimed of Himself, "I am the light of the world and that whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness but has the light of life (John 8:12, 9:5).

Jesus, our Light, is the Lamb of God who took our sins on the cross, atoning for us through His blood. He rose victoriously from the grave defeating death, our deep pain and sin, for you and me. Know that you are a wonderful creation of God and that our Creator desires to have a loving relationship with us through Christ.
