The Rise ministry was launched in order to give everyone an opportunity to serve others, to be the hands and feet of Christ. Rise birthed from the scripture Isaiah 6:8, ‘Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”. For every person involved in rise to have the opportunity to say “here am I send me”. Whether that’s through, serving, giving or even prayer. RISE stands for reaching the hurting, interceding through prayer, serving the community and encouraging the broken. We will have opportunities to do all of that throughout the year, through Rise drives, serving our community, prayer nights and more.
We hope you will join us.
