Outreach Ministry opportunities (local and beyond)

We believe in serving others at SonRise Church. There are opportunities throughout the year to serve at block party events, school field days and even missions trips in the US and Guatemala, where we are apart of a Total Transformation Project in San Felipe!                                                                                  For more information contact Paul Williams: missions@sonrise.cc

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace. 1 Peter 4:10 ESV


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: Nick Morris @ 410-430-2923  0r  mor3132@gmail.com

"So let’s not get tired of doing what is good." Galatians 6:9


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

At Sonrise We are Living Our Lives So Others Meet Jesus.    Connecting them to Jesus; helping them to grow to become more like Jesus and Sharing the hope we have in Jesus.    Evangelism is our core value.  "We will do anything short of sin to reach people for Jesus Christ."  Below are some ways we live this out:
School Partnership events:   Throughout the year we partner with our area schools for events that support them.   We desire to serve our schools and frequently help with the back pack program, movie incentive days, field days, etc.  We also support 'Stephen Decatur High School' for our annual 'Back to School Teachers lunch', 'Taco Night' and 'High School Senior Picnic.'   Please see outreach calendar to sign up and find out more!
Community Events:  We support the town of Berlin on their events and plan our own for the goal of building relationships and prayerfully earning the right to share our faith in Jesus Christ.  See Outreach Calendar for dates and opportunities.
One Day of Service:   Each year, we as a church disperse throughout the entire Berlin, Ocean City area to do service and care projects to bless residents and local organizations.  Please sign up today for "One Day of Service' planned for September 2020.
Taste and See Events:  a few times a year we have events right on our property to bless our church family and community.   We have 'Spring Fair', and the 'Third of July' event to watch fireworks together.  We have quarterly family fun nights that are geared to the whole family.   We also allow our guests to access our facility through tours scheduled throughout the event.   Please see calendar or link to sign up and find out more
Matthew Parties/Block Parties: Throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall we do Matthew Parties in local residential neighborhoods.  We would love to do one in your neighborhood or in partnership with your Life Group/Small group.   Please contact Pastor Tim for scheduling.
411 Gospel Conversation Training:   Want to learn how to share you faith conversational style?   Sign up for the next pathways class called "Life on Mission"   Included in this is the 411 Gospel Conversation Evangelism Training."      Can't attend the class, contact Pastor Tim for training and resources.
