Sonrise reaches out in the local community in various ways through-out the year, but we believe in committed support of local organizations that do an outstanding and vital work in the Fort Wayne community. We continually look for ways that God may be leading us as a church to come alongside of local ministries, so if you have information you would like us to review, you may send it by email to Ken Boyd.

Currently, we are involved in several local outreaches including:

Community Harvest Food Bank

Every second Saturday of the month, Brendan Arnold leads a team from Sonrise Church  to work at the Helping Hands Distribution of Community Harvest Food Bank. The team serves from 7:30 until 10:30 and prepares donated food for distribution to over 1,000 families.

If you would like to join this team, even for one outing, contact Brendan Arnold by text at 260-312-8534 or by email at [email protected]

Sonrise is excited to participate in the local ministry of NeighborLink. NeighborLink provides assistance to people in need – from simple assistance to more skilled needs. What we love about NeighborLink is that it is designed to build relationships with our community. Jesus taught over and over again about loving people and building relationships and we are excited that we get to do that in many ways, including with NeighborLink.

Mandy Stout heads up our work with Neighborlink. To get on the contact list for upcoming serve opportunities, contact Mandy at 260-760-7796. If you have the time and talent for small repair projets you can contact Dave Smith at 260-249-8445. Dave works on repair projects during the week and can get you connected.
