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?

Tuesday/Thursday Summer Fun Days
YCW is a weekend where the student ministry goes to Branson for a weekend full of concerts, biblical teachings and fun at Silver Dollar City. We leave at 4pm on Friday the 3rd and plan to return the 5th that Sunday at 5:30pm. This is definitely one of the most requested events of the year, don’t miss out!
End of the year BASH. Normally every year we try to end the School year with a bang and we will do the same this year. We normally get the grills out and have a big cookout and swim and start the fun early for the Sumer. Date for this is May 20th pending schools final days.
The “Mission58” Motto
Mission 58 exists to see students engaging the culture with the Gospel. On the week of camp, we will be doing exactly that. Morning sessions will consist of a time of worship, teaching and small groups. Students will then be able to encounter what God is doing in and through the nations by sitting down with different mission groups and missionaries. We will then depart to put “boots on the ground” and serve the local community.
Back to school BASH
We will have a BIG get together to say goodbye to longer summer days of freedom and students start the fall school as they go back and learn to better our country and pursue opportunities to share there faith with their classmates. We normally do a fun afternoon of food and games that help us grow our community and get to know one another. (This date will determine on the start of school)
During the Summer we start back with our weekly events. This gives students a way to have a lot of fun in the summer and stay connected more. We as a student ministry go every other Tuesday somewhere like water park, bowling, lake day etc. On Thursdays we stay in Clinton and just have a local hangout place we meet up for fun like sonic, the park or maybe at the movie theaters. This is an awesome way for us to get to know each other outside of the church yet allows us to fellowship with people who regularly attend church and those who don’t to see how as a ministry and a church that we just want to love everyone in a growing relationship with Jesus.
Definitely feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to just visit to get to know us better!!!
