What is eMerge?

As 5th graders round out their elementary careers and move into middle school, RISING Church offers a special Bible school experience just for them! eMerge is designed to help rising 6th graders transition from UpRISING, our elementary program designed specifically for our ‘tweeners, into Surge, our middle school youth group. eMerge is a middle school event for all current 5th-7th graders that allows the group to bond together and welcome the rising 6th graders into their middle school family. It’s a long-awaited event for most of our kids, and it helps them merge into middle school while they emerge as young and growing Christians.

This year we are completely revamping eMerge into a can’t miss “day camp” specifically designed for middle school students!  eMerge will feel like a retreat stretched out over the span of 5 days with all kinds of wild & crazy games, activities, outings such as Malibu Grand Prix, food, small groups, worship and messages.  On Monday & Tuesday we’ll have eMerge from 9am-5pm.  On Wednesday we’ll have a special shortened day from 9am-12pm as we have “messy day”.  On Thursday & Friday we’ll be taking an overnight trip up to the mountains where we’ll do a ropes course, challenge course, rafting, bonfire and other fun.  We’ll kick things off Thursday at 9am and return Friday afternoon around 5pm.  The price for this amazing week of fun, friends & faith is only $170 (which covers all activities, transportation, t-shirt, overnight lodging, and meals — except 2 meals while traveling up and back from the mountains).  If your student brings a friend new to SURGE and RISING, the price drops to $150 for both you and your friend or friends!  So invite your friends and sign up for eMerge now!
