From Pastor Jim during a time of testing
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. We know at this time of fear and anxiety due to the coronavirus many are worried. Yet, we 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.

WelCome to Sunrise:
We invite you to join us in the journey.
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.
Invitation to join us for God’s Story, your story
I would personally like to invite all to join us in for in an intimate look into God’s Word through the study titled The Story. In it we discover the deep abiding love God has for us and the culmination of it found in the redemptive work of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are going through the entire bible from Genesis to Revelation, hitting all the highlights. Come join a class at Sunrise Methodist Church on either Wednesday at 11:00 AM, Sunday 9:15 AM or evening 5:30 PM. Hope to see you there.
All are welcome here at Sunrise.
Bask with us in the Light of the Holy Spirit as God's love bids all made in His image to come. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, "Come to Me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Come, and let us rest together in God's Shining Light."
May the Lord bless you with His love.
Pastor Jim Mozley
