What To Expect

At SonRise, you'll be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are excited to see you. Here's an idea of what to expect when you arrive on Sunday. All you have to do from here is come as you are and find out more for yourself!


At a weekend service, you can expect:

  • Each service to last about one hour and 15 minutes.

  • Thought-provoking and engaging messages based on the Bible.

  • A contemporary service mixed with classic hymns

  • Fun teaching for your kids.

  • A church family of imperfect people happy to invite you in.

Q & A:

Is there a place for my kids to go? 

At Sonrise, we love kids and work hard to make sure they have a good time at church. SonRise Kidz Church is for children through the 5th grade and meets in the downstairs of the church.  Nursery and toddler age children are welcome to be checked in downstairs before the service while the rest of our kids join us for singing and a special children's sermon on the stage with Pastor Dustin.  After the children's sermon, we take a 5 minutes break to greet one another and check our children into Kidz Church.

Does the church have a dress code? 

The dress code at SonRise is "Please do". Feel free to wear jeans, shorts or whatever makes you feel comfortable. 

Are you going to ask for money? 

At SonRise, we don't ask our guests to give any money. Our church is supported by our members and regular attenders of the church. We encourage you to fill out a communication card instead, to stay informed and discover opportunities to take your next right step with God.

Did this church used to be Atkinson Congregational Church? 

Yes. SonRise, has a heritage that goes back to 1863 as Atkinson Congregational Church.
