We Come to Sunrise:
  • to worship God
  • to be forgiven and loved by God
  • to experience a community of faith who care, support, laugh and learn together
  • to bask in the light of God’s love
  • to be sent out to share God’s shining light

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.

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.

In Jesus,

Pastor Jim Mozley
