Welcome to The Rise

December 3rd, 2017

Are you new to The Rise Church? We get that a new church can be intimidating! That’s why we host our “Welcome to The Rise” event. We genuinely want to get to know you and this is the perfect opportunity for you to meet new people, connect with our leaders, ask questions and help you decide if The Rise is the place for you.


Child Dedication

December 10th, 2017

We believe children are a gift from God. Child Dedication is the parents' opportunity to publicly profess that they desire to partner with God as they raise up their child in the ways of Christ. The dedication of a child to the Lord is an important statement by the parents and the church family, based out of the Bible in 1 Samuel 1:21-28.


Water Baptism

December 17th, 2017

Only Jesus can redeem a life, but it’s our job to spread the word. Water Baptism is a public confession of your faith. Going under water symbolizes dying to self, and rising out of the water symbolizes new life in Christ.
