Serve In Our Community

Delmar Volunteer Ministry from SunRise UMC on Vimeo.

Sparrows Nest
We work with the Sparrows Nest marternity home to provide a Christ centered shelter and to educate homeless, pregnant and parenting young women by providing a wide range of services that empower them to make positive and healthy life decisions for themselves and their babies.

The Bridge
“The Bridge” at Centenary United Methodist Church. The first Friday of each month Sunrise provides volunteers to prep, serve, and clean up for the lunch meal at “The Bridge” homeless shelter. Groups meet at the church at 9:15 and carpool to “The Bridge” and return by 1:00.

Our Lady’s Inn
Our Lady’s Inn is a shelter for expectant mothers in need. The residence and their other children live at Our Lady’s Inn during and for a time after their pregnancy. Sunrise provides dinner the second Tuesday of each month. Volunteers can either prepare the food at Our Lady’s Inn or prepare it at home and deliver by 4:00 Tuesday.

Streetlight Project
SunRise will work closely with the City of O'Fallon in helping people in our community with projects that need to be finished. For more info email Jim Blue at
