Ministry is essential to growth. Find one you like and we'll grow together.

Worship Arts

The Worship Arts Ministry at Sunrise exists to help people understand the character, nature, and works of God so that they can worship Him with all of their hearts, soul, mind and strength. This occurs weekly through cooperative worship music, but also can encompass dramas, multi-media presentations, art, dance, and any other creative giftedness that God has put in people’s lives.
