    We have completed a time of casting visions and are now claiming that vision and living into God Dreams at Sunset United Methodist Church. Whether you have been a part of this great church family for decades or this is your first time to glance at our community of faith, I invite you lean on the Holy Spirit with us as God does a new thing. As we offer our authentic selves to God and to one another, surely we will all be changed for the better.

 Pastor Keith A. Swatzel II

As a community of faith we can only accomplish our mission of making followers of Jesus when we follow him ourselves.

March 1 (Ash Wednesday 7:15 pm): Imposition of Ashes

March 5: Possessed

March 12: Fan Riddled

In Christian tradition, Lent is a season of 40 days (not counting Sundays) which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness.
Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.
Sunset UMC recognizes the value of Lent as a time to prepare our hearts for the wonder of the resurrection Christ.
Wednesday, March 1, 2017, we begin preparing for Ash Wednesday with a worship service at 7:15 pm for imposition of ashes. Join us for the beginning of this spiritual journey.

Offering left on the communion rail will be used to support UMCOR Sunday, (United Methodist Committee on Relief), also known as One Great Hour of Sharing. Gifts  support administrative needs/expenses so other funds donated go 100% to the disaster relief. UMCOR gets no funds through our apportionments.

The 2016 vision team has completed its work and has set the vision for Sunset UMC.

In the next five year, Sunset UMC will connect with new people in order to grow the church and mentor new Christian leaders.

Now is is sour turn to claim that vision by participating in the ministry team and the goals that will take us step-by-step to our vision.

Add new and engaging elements to worship.

Intentionally welcome everyone and help them connect

Foster small group and spiritual development beyond Sunday morning.

Offer opportunities for inter-generational activity/games.
