The Backpack Ministry is a program that SonRise offers to help feed school children that may not always have meals available for them after school and on the weekends. The Backpack ministry provides a bag every week filled with food that is easy to open and prepare, so they have food to eat over the weekend. The students we serve are in Buckingham and Berlin Intermediate school.
How can you help?
- Help pack and deliver bags on Tuesdays
- Donate food items (I will provide a list)
- Make a tax-deductible donation
- Let us know if you know of a child in need

SHARING THE HARVEST
In 2009 SonRise began the Sharing the Harvest Ministry. This ministry is a mobile food pantry that serves Maryland’s Eastern Shore. We work in conjunction with the Maryland Food Bank as well as many community partners to provide food to those in need.
Check out the Sharing the Harvest Website to learn more, serve on their team, or find out when and where the next distribution will be held.
SonRise Cares Ministry is a ministry that comes alongside people in time of need, to provide meals, transportation, visitation, and other needs. SonRise Cares 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.
If this ministry excites you and you are interested in joining our team, or you or someone you know is in need of the assistance that this ministry offers please contact:
"So let’s not get tired of doing what is good." Galatians 6:9
