    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
