Foundations of our Church
Introduction to Sunrise Chapel

sunrise chapel


aka "New Church 101"

This 8-week series of small group/classes highlights the main teachings of our church, and helps give insight into what the New Church movement and the global organization is all about.
Open to anyone whether you are a recent newcomer or long-time member who wants a refresher.
One of the things I love about this course is the questions people bring!! It’s an opportunity to ask and discuss any question, no matter how basic.
This course is scheduled on an "as needed" basis - Contact Nathan Gladish for more details or to be added to the "event notification list."

Everyone is welcome to join whether you are new to Sunrise Chapel or a long time member wanting a refresher.

Starting Sunday, Jan 28

- How do I forgive in a genuine way, where I don't keep getting triggered?

- How do I loosen my grip on the past, and live in the present?

Practicing Forgiveness presents a vibrant, Bible-based program for transforming painful situations into ones that promote love and healing. Designed for small-group participation, this workbook contains activities, meditations, and stories to read and discuss, as well as space for individual reflection.

Each topic will be introduced in the 11 am Sunday church service. Your participation in a weekly small group will allow you to explore the topic in more detail.

Week 1: Why Forgive?

Week 2: Forgiving Others

Week 3: Being Forgiven

Week 4: Self-Forgiveness

Week 5: Transformation

Week 6: Wrap-Up and Celebration

Join this important study at Sunrise Chapel, the church with the heavenly view.


A Labyrinth on Sunrise Chapel Grounds

We are very happy to welcome anyone to enjoy the installation of a beautiful, simple labyrinth on the Sunrise Chapel grounds. This is a wonderful addition to the various paths available to support everyone's spiritual growth.

What is a Labyrinth?

A labyrinth is a prayer in motion, a moving meditation. One can pray a sentence of scripture while walking, simply call the Lord to mind as you walk, celebrate a joy, or share a concern as you move through the space...

It's not a maze, where you are led astray or to a dead-end. It's a path that leads you in to the center and back out again. One way to think of it is letting the Lord flow into you and turn off your "chatting thinker" who wants to solve all problems, not very effectively! Let the Lord lead you, trust the path, and see that you are right where you're meant to be. Notice the rejuvenation and calm that can happen after walking the labyrinth.

The labyrinth was installed on Saturday, October 1, 2016 as a collaborative effort by members and friends of Sunrise Chapel. It was a lovely experience. We want this labyrinth to be a community service, a place of peace and mindfulness for all to enjoy.
