Attention Men of RISING, this Fall we are planning a special men’s leadership retreat out to Utah. We’ll be exploring what it means to be a man after God’s own heart as we take real-life experiences and object lessons and apply them to how we can be better leaders in our families, work places, community and church. We’ll be doing some pretty epic hikes in both Zion and Bryce National parks as we get out into God’s great creation and spend time with our Heavenly Father and with one another. This will be an adventure you won’t soon forget. We’ll be flying in to Las Vegas on Thursday morning, September 30th and flying home Monday afternoon, October 4th. We’ll spend 4 nights on a peaceful “ranch” outside the east entrance of Zion in a converted stable/bunkhouse, which will be our base of operations. Without flights, the estimated cost per person will be $300 for ground transportation, lodging, park entrance, and most meals. We are working on group airfare which we are guesstimating will fall somewhere between $250-$350, hopefully on the lower end. Our maximum number will be 30, so be sure to register with a $100 deposit as soon as possible to reserve your spot!

Dates: Thursday, September 30 – Monday, October 4
Location:Zion and Bryce National Park, Utah
Cost: TBD; $100 deposit to reserve your spot

RISING Kids Camp

By Events, Giving, Kids Page

We believe that we are all designed individually and intentionally with unique gifts and abilities. Therefore, kids can cater this camp experience to their own interests and skills. In addition to high-energy worship and Biblical lessons, they will get the chance to dig deep into two tracks during the day based on their preferences.

Kids choose one focus for the week that includes two daily tracks:

Drama & Video Production: Kids will be able to work hands-on in our production studio to create fun projects. Kids will learn and practice skills in dramatic performance as they create fun videos.

Art Works & Kitchen Concoctions: Kids will learn and practice art techniques and skills to create true works of art through painting, drawing, sculpting, and more. Then, they get to learn food preparation skills and recipes for kids to dive into the world of cooking and better yet, eating some great snacks.

Building Zone & Discovery Lab: Kids get to participate in building activities for those kids who love to create and design projects. Then, kids will get to explore science through fun learning activities and science experiments.

The cost for the week is $25 per child to cover supplies, snacks, t-shirts, and water bottles. There is a discounted rate for each additional child in a family.

Date: June 7-10
Location: RISING Church
Times: 9AM-12:30PM

EMERGE is hands down the best way to start the summer! This week-long event is the first opportunity our rising 6th graders have to join the SURGE family. It is the perfect time for the new class to get to know the other middle schoolers and create fun summer memories. This year’s theme is EXPEDITION, middle school and life is an adventure and if you don’t plan, prepare, or ready yourself for unexpected obstacles it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

Each night we will meet at the church for dinner, games, worship, a message, and small group. However, each night will look different with Monday being a grill out, Tuesday bowling, Wednesday water games, and an overnight trip Thursday to go rafting.

Date: June 7-11
Location: RISING Church
Cost: $150
Who is Eligible? Rising 6th grade-8th grade
