Throughout the year we do numerous events all centered on having a ton of fun, serving others, and growing in our faith in Jesus. The reason we do this is because the basis of Christianity is to live like Jesus. Matthew 22:37-39 “Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love your Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'”
We as RISE Student ministry want to follow Jesus in His teachings with everything we do. Neglecting no one regardless how they act, look, mistakes they have made, nor what life has brought them. We all are in need of a Savior to lead us to a better life. What better life is there than to love everyone and direct them to a redeemer who can allow them a love and completeness like they have never known?

September One Day
In sept as the leaves are falling and we are moving into the fall weather we as a student ministry go into our community and help out. Sometimes it’s cleaning yards, sometimes its serving others at a local establishment, or maybe even just helping out a few people with some around the house chores. Regardless our point of the “One Day” is to get out in our community and be seen. Seen not so much as our church, or look at us, but a reminder to others that they’re people in this world that just want to help and show the light of Christ as he gets the glory in everything we do. Date will be a Saturday, however exact date is unknown do to me the student pastor as we are expecting our first born mid-September. Looking forward to meeting you in our community and making an impact!
Every fall we lean to 1 direction or another and do a progressive diner and bonfire to fellowship. However this year October 7th at 6pm we are putting a spin on it and doing a combo event. We will do a progressive dinner start where we go to homes for different meals to fellowship with the home owners and hear a testimony or encouraging word and the bonfire we do a hay ride and/or food and have a short sermon as we enjoy the fire and s’mores! These two events are always a big hit for the students so definitely don’t miss out!
D-Now will be on November 6th-8th. It’s a weekend where the students get to put the world on hold for 2 and half days and really dive into Gods word. They get to hear great sermons, deep devotions, personal small group discussions and have an incredible blast all wrapped up into one weekend. Out of all the events we do D-now is the most requested and sought after event we do, because the student learn so much and have so much fun doing it. The students get to interact with each other in a group setting, gender specifics and even down to grade level discussion about life and what it supposed to look like to trust and follow God. Make sure to get signed up for this event because you won’t want to miss it!
December ARK Night
Acts of Random Kindness. December for many is one of the best times of the year, but for some its not. Our students have decided to go out in our community and make random acts of kindness not be so random. We want to build up our community and help people with simple or big things going on in their day to day life. Opening a door , loading a car, carrying an item, cleaning something dirty. Our whole point is to make a presence in our community and pray with each person we come in contact with and let them know they are loved and cared for. After this we will end with a desert fun party to wrap it. If you want to see God move definitely don’t miss this ARK night as it will be one to be remembered!
Definitely feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to just visit to get to know each other better!!!
