Outreach Ministries

School Partnership Events

Throughout the year we partner with our area schools for events that support them. We desire to serve our schools through the Backpack Program, movie incentive days, field days, and more! We also support Stephen Decatur High School for our annual Back to School Teachers Luncheon, Taco Night, and Senior Picnic. Please see our outreach calendar to sign up and find out more!

Community Events

We support the Town of Berlin and plan our own for the purpose of building relationships and prayerfully earning the right to share our faith in Jesus Christ. Please see the outreach calendar for dates and opportunities.

Each year, we as a church disperse throughout the entire Berlin and Ocean City area to do service projects that bless residents and local organizations. Keep an eye out for upcoming projects!

A few times a year we have events right on our property to bless our church family and community. These include our Spring Fair and our Third of July firework event, as well as quarterly Family Fun Nights that are geared towards the whole family. Please see our calendar to sign up and find out more!

Every year SonRise collaborates with Stephen Decatur High School to put on a Taco Night for the surrounding community. We serve tacos, rice, desserts, and other refreshments. All proceeds go directly to Stephen Decatur High.

Backpack Ministry

The Backpack Ministry helps feed children at Buckingham Elementary School and Berlin Intermediate School that may not always have meals available for them after school and on the weekends. Our team includes public relations specialists, shoppers, packers, and delivery drivers.

Sharing The Harvest

The mission of the Sharing the Harvest mobile pantry is to bring food and other supplies to the poor, the needy, families in crisis, and people suffering from homelessness in the Worcester County area. This ministry is always looking for delivery loaders and unloaders, truck drivers, and people to work the sign-in table at Sharing the Harvest distributions.

SonRise Care Ministry

SonRise Cares Ministry tries to meet the needs of those who are facing challenging times in their life by living out Galatians 6:10: “Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” This ministry involves coming alongside our church family in times of need by providing meals, transportation, visitation, and other needs.
