Ladies of SonRise July 2023 Update

Summer Series Kickoff

We hope you were able to join us for our summer series kick off in June. We had a fantastic time together! We enjoyed some desserts, and everyone was able to put together a recipe book of all the recipes we collected.  We also began our study of How to Hear God by Pete Greig.  If you missed it check out the video here:

Join us on July 25th at 6 pm!

Do you feel that your prayers are lacking? If you are going through the motions of prayer, and want to reinvent your prayer life, then try using the A.C.T.S Prayer Model. Remember that there is no right or wrong way to pray. In our July summer series, we will focus on prayer and how we can hear from God in our prayer time and make our own prayer journals.  You can sign up at this LINK.
Adoration - When you communicate with God your love for “Who He is...”
There are SO many incredible characteristics of God that are shared in scripture. Make yourself a list of God’s characteristics (and scripture verses that match). Use your list to thoughtfully talk with God about the specific qualities that draw you nearer to Him.

Confession - When you take an honest inventory of your faults (sins), and share these with God (Do this knowing that God already knows all of your stuff!
By humbly admitting your shortcomings you grow in your connection to Christ, and gain the freedom to release the guilt and shame you are carrying).

Thanksgiving- When you take time to thank God for “What He has done...”
Think about everyday blessings that you take for granted. Talk to God about the amazing ways that you see Him working in your life through good and bad times. Express your gratitude!

Supplication- When you “ASK” God to provide for your specific needs and the needs of others. Carefully frame your personal requests. Although you may certainly ask for anything, it is always best to remember that God is in control, and that His plan (not yours) will work all things for good. That being said, you might not get what you want!


As summer sets in, we hope that you are finding some time to soak in the sun or even spend some time around a fire making some s’mores!  Speaking of s’mores…who knew that there are so many ways to make them…with so many different variations!  Check out some of the ideas we have found.
Swaps And Additions
  • White chocolate
  • Dark chocolate
  • An entire candy bar, such as a Snicker’s or a Twix
  • A Reese’s cup
  • Nutella spread
  • Raspberry jam
  • Tahini
  • Peanut butter


Although summer may not bring the slow down that we sometimes desperately need, God is faithful to replenish our souls when we find moments to be still in His presence.  We hope that you are finding some slow down moments this summer.  This song may be an encouragement of slowing down and being still.
