The Network @ RISE

We are in the process of launching an exciting new ministry at RISE called "The Network". The mission of The Network is to partner Middle and High Schoolers in the RISE community with young adult mentors (college aged and above). These mentor partnerships would meet weekly, likely on Sundays before or after worship, and will provide a safe environment for our teenagers to explore challenging questions, receive support in challenging times, as well as just have fun! 

We are in the process of collecting names of teenagers that may be interested. We are also looking for mentors who want to make a significant difference in the lives of young people and are willing to commit to this incredible ministry. 

Contact riseharrisonburg@gmail.com if you have questions or would like to sign up!

Current Series: Hardly Christian: Finding Yourself on the Outside

We know what you're thinking: "HARDLY CHRISTIAN?! What are you up to RISE?" Rest assured, we haven't gone off the deep end. This month's series is certainly provocative but we also think it is incredibly important. We are asking questions about the intersection of faith, rejection, and shame. You know those moments where you find that you don't feel part of the 'in group' the way you used to? Perhaps even at church? That's what Hardly Christian is wrestling with. We hope you'll join us!

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 60 W. Market St.
