RISING Weekend

By | Events, Kids Page, Registration | No Comments

RISING Weekend is an all-church weekend retreat to get away from the craziness of our everyday lives and create some time and space for us to connect with God, our families, and one another. Our theme this year is “We are Family”, and the reality is unless we set aside time and space to connect with one another on a deeper level, we’ll never feel like a true family. So we want everyone who calls RISING Church home to carve this weekend out of their busy schedules so we can all get away together and have that necessary time and space to become a family. We want to go from friends and acquaintances to brothers and sisters. This won’t be hard to do as we laugh and play together enjoying everything that Young Life’s Carolina Point has to offer, from the delicious food, to the top-notch deluxe accommodations, to the amazing programming & free-time activities, to the times of worship and teaching. All of this in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains only a 2-hour drive from Gwinnett County. RISING Weekend is for all of us, age 0-100: kids, youth, college students, young adults, singles, married, empty nesters, and everything in-between. Let’s do what it takes to become a family, let’s all go together to RISING Weekend!

Registration is now officially open! Let’s encourage one another to make this weekend a priority, and do everything we can to fill up all of our spots. Registration is easy. Just click the registration button below.

Each player will be drafted on a team for the season and a jersey is included in the cost.
