Rise Fam, 

We hope you have been able to enjoy time with family and reflect on the meaning of sacrifice and peacemaking this Memorial Day Weekend.

Looking forward to being together tomorrow. Come join us for worship, games, dessert, & small group!  

Plus, this week Pastor Pete will be in the building! He will be answering second most popular question submitted by students: “Why did God put that one tree in the Garden of Eden in the first place?” 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. To join please contact Joe at 253-409-8344
