At RISING we are intentional about creating a close-knit community and it starts here. We have created the following opportunities and environments to assist you to meet people and take the next step in your faith journey.  It is our goal for everyone who calls RISING Church their faith family to get involved and seek a deeper more vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.

Groves at RISING

As Hebrew 10:24-25 states, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” We were created to be in fellowship with both God and one another.  GROVES, our small groups ministry, are a great way to see both of those needs met. Learn More…

Mission Trips at RISINGMISSION_CITY2_1

One of the ways we pursue and live out discipleship is to be His witness. Every year we offer opportunities to go on a number of mission trips through the church and to support our Ministry Partners and Friends of RISING. Whether you commit to going by yourself or with your family, these trips are a great way to bring the good news of the gospel to others in Gwinnett County, in Georgia and the greater Unites States, as well as, to the ends of the earth. Learn More…

Athletics at RISING

Where can a parent and a child, a student and an adult, or a small group leader and a middle schooler play a friendly game and bond together at the same time?  At RISING Church, that’s where.  RISING Athletics was creating for inter-generational fellowship. We currently have soccer (Spring/Summer), and basketball (Winter) seasons and hope to expand in the not to distant future.  RISING Athletics is open to everyone entering 8th grade in the fall and older.

new member orientation (2)Membership at RISING

Interested in learning more about who we are at RISING and what we are about? Getting acquainted is a two way street.  We want to get to know you too!  At RISING we offer two entry points to becoming a partner with us: Connection Lunches and NEXT, New Membership Orientation.  Connection Lunch is a time of fellowship over a meal designed for anybody new to RISING where you and our staff can get to know each other away from church.  New Membership Orientation is an opportunity for those interested in learning more about making it “official” and becoming a member.  It’s a place to ask questions about what are the expectations of becoming a member at RISING and in turn what can you expect from us.  Each of these opportunities are offered quarterly throughout the year. Learn More…

Prayer Opportunities at RISING

We believe in a powerful God who is able to do that which is beyond ourselves, and prayer connects us to this power both corporately and individually.  At RISING, it’s a foundational piece of all we do.  We encourage you to make prayer an integral part of your daily walk and offer a variety of support opportunities to help make that happen. We currently have Adult Prayer Meetings and Individual Prayer on Sunday morning!

Interested in starting a class or hosting an event at RISING?

At RISING Church, we recognize that the Holy Spirit can work in all members of our church body, and for that reason we want to create an opportunity for when you believe God is leading you to start a RISING Class or a RISING Event.  Has God put a vision on your heart that you believe will lead members in the body of RISING “into a deeper and more vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ”?  If the answer is yes then we ask that you take some time to do the following:

  • Step 1: Pray for God’s guidance as you seek to determine what to do with your vision for ministry.
  • Step 2: Review the “Criteria for Classes & Events” standards and consider if your vision meets the criteria required to establish a ministry area at RISING Church.  (RISING Church Class Event Criteria)
  • Step 3: Having established that your vision meets the proper criteria for a “RISING Class/Event” please complete and submit the online request/application for review.
  • Step 4: Upon approval, the applicant for a RISING Class or Event will be sent notification and a staff member will be assigned as a liaison to help facilitate implementation.
