On Father’s Day we heard testimony from 3 fathers who took their children of varying ages on the Mexico mission trip. We are excited to let you know we are already putting plans together for next summer’s “family” mission trip to Mexico. We’ve set the dates for Saturday, May 30th through Saturday, June 6th. This mission trip to build hope for families in need by building homes, will be open to everyone: fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, kids, teens, parents, grandparents, etc. We are having a preliminary informational meeting on Sunday, August 25th, immediately after the service in the Theater, to see if we have enough interest in making this trip happen. Come find out more!
Date: Sunday, August 25th
Location: Theater at NGHS
Time: Following service, approx. 12:15pm

Come join us on Tuesday, August 27th, for our monthly prayer gathering. Are you sick and tired of trying to carry your burdens on your own? Are you seeking a breakthrough in an area of struggle in your life? Come have the elders and prayer team at RISING pray over you! Let’s seek the Lord together. Stop trying to carry our burdens on our own. Being church means carrying each other’s burdens and praying for one another! We’ll be meeting at Aaron & Kimberly’s at 7:30pm (175 W Shadburn Ave in Buford). All are welcome to come!
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!
