Welcome to Rise!

Here we strive to create an environment where our students can wrestle with their questions and doubts to build a strong foundation of faith. Ezra 10:4 says, “Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We wills support you, so take courage and do it.” This is exactly what we want! For our students to take ownership of their walk and have the tools to share that with others, while knowing that we )the leaders and other students) are behind them, supporting them along the way.

Jr. High (Confirmation)
Our Jr High curriculum is CoLabOrate, from Spark House. During this three year program, our Jr. High students will learn the basics of Christianity, walk through the books of the Bible, and explore Lutheran beliefs and traditions in fun and interactive ways with our passionate teachers and group leaders.

Sr. High
Our Sr. High curriculum is Grow, from Stuff You Can Use. Each month we work through a different series, touching on topics like friendship, prayer, wisdom, identity, and family. After the message, our students meet in growth groups where they not only engage in deeper discussions about the lesson, but also share the lives and build supportive relationships.
