Enjoy Connection and Outdoor Recreation
Recreation Connection is a community playground for all to enjoy. Come anytime!
You and your family are welcome to visit whenever you like. Once you drive onto either our upper parking lot or lower parking lot, drive to the opposite end of the lot and you’ll see the playground and a shelter area.
Community Easter Events
Easter season is a celebration time for the church. It’s also a time when spring weather begins returning to Ohio. We love our community and enjoy hosting a family-fun event during this time of year. It usually takes place about a week before Easter. Our theme changes every year, but there is always fun, candy and a warm welcome! Join us this year for the Easter Car Hop on Sunday, April 10th.
Community Christmas Celebrations
We can’t resist celebrating with our community during the Christmas season! You can visit our calendar each you to see what we’re hosting in early to mid-December. Once again, you’ll find fun, food and a warm welcome! We usually have activities (like cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus) and fun experiences (we had two reindeer last time!).
Community Autumn Festival
As October comes to a close we know the days are getting shorter and colder soon. You can count on us to host another fun activity around then for the whole community to have some fun with the kids outside while we still can! For our last event we had a bounce house, pumpkin decorating, and several other activities. Your family can also enjoy the Recreation Connection playground. Keep an eye on our events calendar in October!
Summer Fun Events
We love summer outdoors here…and we often host a few other parties to enjoy the weather! In June you can expect us to have a community event at the beginning or close of Vacation Bible School (you’re invited to that too!). We usually think of something to do in July and August too. We have the playground, the shelter house, a popcorn maker, a snow cone maker, a hot dog stand…why not have a party!
Kairos Prison Ministry International is an interdenominational Christian ministry in which men and women volunteers bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to prisoners and their families.
Several volunteers at Sunbury UMC serve in Kairos each year. Some participate in ministry visits. Others volunteer to bake cookies and pray over the men and women we visit and serve.
A community blessing box is located on our lower parking lot. Look for the white fence and you’ll find the blessing box near the building between the fence and the Cherry Road. Take what you need, leave what you can.
