Introducing Pacific Sunrise

We’re so glad you chose to spend a few minutes with us! We’d like to briefly describe what you’re signed up to receive. Pacific Sunrise is a twice-weekly source of news and inspiration from across the Pacific Union. We promise two things: it won’t take long to read, and it will always include an opportunity to learn about what is happening in our faith community.

The Pacific Union comprises seven conferences spread across five states here in the West. We can’t all gather in person, so we’d like to fellowship here. We believe that coming together in fellowship is one of the ways our community enriches our lives.

That’s Pacific Sunrise.

The Gift of Music

Paradise Adventist Academy received the gift of music in mid-December. When the PAA volleyball team met up with Rogue Valley Adventist Academy in Medford, Oregon, they were surprised with over 50 donated instruments. Click the link below to read more.
