Ministry
Celebrating and sharing God's love for over 123 years!
 Welcome to Sunne!

 We encourage you to check us out, both  
 here on the website and in person at the church.  Come and
 experience the presence of God.  We believe that we cannot
 earn God's favor, God's love, or our way into heaven. 
 Instead, we are completely dependent upon God's grace. 
 We live our life in response to God's love.

 On our website you will find all sorts of information
 about God's work at Sunne and who God's people are at
 Sunne.  But most importantly, we hope that you will feel
 welcome to explore how God works throught the family of
 God that gathers at Sunne.

 Sunne is a community that welcomes all people - regardless
 of age, sex, color, religious background, or sexual expression. 
 The community of Sunne enjoys worshiping God, laughter,
 fellowship, singing, praying and learning are all part of who
 we are.

 We hope you enjoy your jouney around Sunne. We invite
 you to experience God's presence in the lives of the family of
 God that gathers at Sunne.  And, if you are so inclined, we
 warmly invite you to experience God's presence first hand
 by visiting Sunne in person.

HOSPITAL VISITS
Both local hospitals have made it extremely difficult for pastors to
 find out who is in the hospital.
 If you, or someone you know,
 is hospitalized and would like Pastor Paul to visit, you can
reach him at 391- 0584. 
Also, if you are a patient at Sanford, please indicate your church as "Sunne".
Campbell's Labels or Education

We, along with hundred of other Lutherans around the country, collect labels from Campbell's products for the Navajo Evangelical Lutheran Mission in Rock Point, Arizona.  The Rock Point Mission then uses these labels to purchase needed items for the Mission.  In past years, several 15 passenger bans have been purchased.  The container for these label is located near the telephone in the narthex.

HALF OF CHRISTMAS
     Every year we encourage God's family that gathers at Sunne to participate in Half of Christmas where we set aside half of what we would spend on Christmas gifts and give to a designated cause.  This year we are encouraging everyone to participate in the ELCA's World Hunger efforts by purchasing goats, chickens, pigs, bees, etc. 
     We've placed a Christmas tree in the narthex.  On this tree are a number of ornaments each with a different animal and dollar amount.  If you would like to participate, please take as many ornaments as you would like, total up the amount, and write a check to Sunne.  Please put "World Hunger" on the memo line or the offering envelope and place in the offering plate.  Then, hang the ornament on your Christmas tree at home.    Please have all offerings to the church by Christmas Eve/Christmas Day.
