Weekly Newsletter

Rise Fam, 

We had a great time escaping some rooms with you all last week! 

This Wednesday we are back in the Sanctuary. 
Come join us for games, worship, small groups, and as always, free desserts! 6:30pm-8:00pm. See you then! 


We will be starting a new study on the Letter to the Ephesians. 

If you have ever wondered about what Jesus accomplished on the cross, how his death and resurrection creates a new kind of people, and how a 2000 year old letter is relevant to the conversations happening in your schools & on your social media feeds, then we would love to have you! 

We are now inviting incoming 9th graders! 

Bible Study meets most Fridays from 4-5 pm. For more info or to join please contact Joe at 253-409-8344


Students are welcome to submit their own questions about the Bible, Jesus, and what it means to follow him.  

While we won’t be able to tackle every question on Wednesdays, we hope to cover a few of them, and encourage your students that it is okay to doubt, that God invites our questions, and He is big enough to handle them.  

This Week's Question: What does it mean to carry your cross & follow Jesus right now? (From HS student)

Questions can be submitted to joe@maplevalleychurch.org, 253-409-8344, or they can send a DM to Rise_youthmvc on Instagram.
