worship at Court Square Theater

Worship is how we connect with God and with each other as a community. It helps us realize God's dream for God's creation and invites us to live into it throughout the week. Worship gives us an opportunity to learn, dig deeper and experience good news as we wrestle with and explore the difficult questions of life and faith. Worship at RISE takes place every Sunday morning at exactly 10(ish) at Court Square Theater.


Saved: A lenten sermon series

As we move into this season of Lent, we at RISE will be exploring some pretty big ideas. Ideas like sin. And salvation. And what happens after death. We want everyone to know that, in true RISE fashion, this series will seek to ask the great questions, not impose answers upon you.
We also recognize that great questions need places to ask and answer them. So we will be hosting three post-worship small group gatherings at Capital Ale House starting at noon on March 12th, March 26th, and April 9th to wrestle with questions that arise during the series. We hope you'll join us on this journey through the heart of our faith. And remember, don't freak out. This ends well.
