“Ordinary people, empowered by God, making a difference, together, wherever they are.”

Here at SonRise Church, we are dedicated to the PEACE plan. The PEACE plan is a hopeful response to the five giant problems of the world: spiritual emptiness, self-serving leadership, poverty, disease and illiteracy. PEACE is a movement to mobilize Christians in churches to work together to:

  • Plant churches that promote reconciliation
  • Equip servant leaders
  • Assist the poor
  • Care for the sick
  • Educate the next generation

SonRise is committed to seeking out and providing PEACE opportunities so that our church family can be a part of the movement. Please see below for our current on-going opportunity. For seasonal opportunities, please be sure to check our Events Calendar. For information on upcoming PEACE mission trips, please contact us at or call (513) 576-6000.

Backpack Ministry – a local ministry

62% of America’s teachers regularly see kids who come to school hungry because they aren’t getting enough to eat at home ( The Backpack Ministry is an outreach designed to combat childhood hunger and assist the poor.

How can YOU help?

Bring the whole family to the SonRise PEACE Center (975 Lila Ave., Milford) to pack bags of food that are distributed to numerous schools in the Cincinnati area. These bags are given to students on Fridays to take home with them so they have food to eat over the weekend. No sign-up necessary to participate. Backpack Ministry typically meets every Thursday at 6:30 PM, however please reference the Events Calendar for dates and times.
