We Are Rise

Rise is a church that gathers Sunday nights at 4pm & 6pm in Gresham, Oregon to worship God and grow in God's word. During the week we meet in homes to encourage one another and provide a welcoming place to share our real lives. A church is not a building, a mission statement or way of believing. A Church is a people of Jesus. We are the Church. #wearerise

The Advent of Jesus

Current Series - The Book of Nehemiah

Advent is a significant and historic time in the church calendar. Across the world, Christians celebrate Advent by lighting candles, spending more time in prayer, and choosing compassion over consumerism. The word advent means “the coming.” It is a time for celebrating what God has already fulfilled in Christ as we expectantly await His return.

    “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger”. (Luke 2:11-12) . This is a person-gift. There’s nothing like a person-gift. When someone is born, the first thing a new parent experiences is the gift of the little one’s presence. That’s just what is being spoken of by these angel-messengers. They announce the coming presence of the Savior Jesus. . These angels declare that Jesus came into our world. God entered in. He became touchable, holdable, kissable, even killable. The hope here, pronounced by the angels, is the reality that our God and Savior steppe into human existence to be present with us. He came to suffer with us, be known by us, and ultimately suffer for us. Jesus is the person-gift of God for all people, born not just in general but “unto us”. .

    “They would take me grocery shopping with them, text me during the week, ask me out to coffee, and did Bible studies with me. They invited me to be part of their families, and I truly felt that I was. They told me hard truths, shared their lives with me, and asked me hundreds of questions, all of which made me feel known and cared for. These women were not my parents, but really continued the work that my parents had started. They did not sign up to mentor me, nor did they ever make me feel like a project. I think they just chose to do all of this, following the call to be a Titus 2 Woman.” -Lauren Tompkins, Rise Youth Leader . Read the rest of this article, “Raising Up the Women After Us”.

    “Mary had prepared her life to serve God, and she had prepared her heart to believe Him. Often, we might prepare everything for Christmas to arrive: We get the gifts, we decorate, we visit the relatives ... But then, once the actual event hits, are we prepared in our heart to be present with Jesus? Do we believe that He actually has come and is coming back? Do we make room for Him in our hearts, our inner beings, to grow and kick and be present with us? . The message that Jesus brings and the work that He does, these things are deeply transform-ing. We can receive them in faith within our hearts and then move along to the next thing. But if we do not attend to our hearts and give ourselves room to be present with Jesus throughout day-to-day life, we miss out on the sweetest and most transforming aspect of who Christ is: God with us. Jesus is here. Do you believe it?” 🎄 . Above is an excerpt from our weekly study guide! You can download the full PDF by visiting the link in profile, or by downloading our Rise City Church App in the iTunes Store or Google! . #wearerise

    JOIN US TONIGHT as we continue in our Advent series! The Advent, meaning “the arrival” is a historical season when Christians have contemplated the Incarnation, or Jesus’ arrival on earth. 🌏 . We participate in Advent when we resist the temptation to buy into our culture’s glib consumerism and intentionally turn our attention onto Jesus who IS God with us. . So, gather with Rise this evening to focus on Jesus and make more of this season!! 👑 . #wearerise

    DEIDRE MOSS FOR THE WIN!!!! . You know that weekly Rise devotion that you spend time in every week? Deidre spends hours of her time in the Word herself, so that she can lead our church by writing top-notch devotional content that draws you closer to God. She knows the importance of God's Word in our church so she dedicates herself to making it applicable by offering fresh perspective and penning relevant questions that move us closer to truth. 📖 . It's obvious that she gives her all in everything that she commits herself to, including building meaningful relationships with the middle schoolers of Rise, as she serves weekly in Rise Youth. She shows our middle schoolers that they are GREATLY valued by communicating with them right on their level. 🙌🏾 . These are only a few reasons why we appreciate Deidre so much and why she is our December Volunteer of the Month! 🎉 . THANK YOU, DEIDRE!!!! 👏🏽 . #wearerise

    At Rise, we are a people who pray for one another. . Throughout the week, our prayer team is committed to praying over the people of our church. . If you’ve downloaded our Rise City Church App, you can submit a prayer request. We encourage everyone to participate in this feature as it allows us to become more engaged and connected to one another. . Download the app today! 📱 . “I think we need to preach to ourselves that our prayers are part of the causality of the final victory of God. He wouldn’t have asked us to pray that his kingdom come if he didn’t mean for our prayers to be an instrument in the coming of the kingdom.” - John Piper

    Tonight we begin a new series called ‘The Advent of Jesus’. Advent means "arrival". The advent reminds us of Jesus' first coming and simultaneously points us forward to His return. .

Join us TONIGHT as we get a closer look at how our lives change in light of Jesus’ first coming and how we can prepare our lives for His return. 🎄 . #wearerise

    “'Gratitude' comes from the same word as freedom (gratis = free). Gratitude is the freeing expression of a free heart toward one who freely gave." –Ravi Zacharias . We hope your day is filled with gratitude, friends, and family! Happy Thanksgiving!! 🦃🍁🍽

    Instead of having a child dedication tacked on at the end of one of our services, we wanted to dedicate an entire service to the event! 🙌🏾 . Each family took time to carefully choose THREE words they wanted to speak over their children as they grow to follow Jesus. 👶🏽👦🏼👧🏾 .

    Last night, we stood alongside 10 families as they dedicated their children to the Lord—declaring their desire to raise their children to follow Jesus, and to prepare them for a life of Kingdom significance. 🙌🏾👶🏼👦🏻👧🏽👶🏿 . Rise is a church where an investment in the lives of kids and youth is seen as the single most important investment we can make. . We do not babysit children, we disciple small, divine, image-bearing, human beings up into the full image of their savior and creator. . We are not coddling spiritual infants, we are raising up Gospel-Warriors. The children of this church are not a ministry project, a nuisance, or a limiting factor, but rather they are our future. The greatest weapon for Gospel Saturation is a child that has been sharpened week-after-week, day-after-day with the transformative truth that "Jesus loves me this I know”. . So we will be a church radically committed to raising up an entire generation of missionaries, entrepreneurs, pastors, mothers, city group leaders, teachers, church planters, electricians, nurses, worship leaders, husbands, police officers, preachers, and gospel-saturators who will transform our city as they lead this church into a brighter future than we ever imagined. May we not stand in their way, rather let’s lift them upon our shoulders to see further and reach higher than we ever could. #wearerise

    As a ministry of the local church, Rise Worship seeks to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus through music and singing. To make Jesus famous, to tell the world of his love, to encourage those who believe. . “Rather it be during a church service or somewhere outside of it, the worship ministry exists to use music as a tool to minister to people through lyrics and sound in order to lead them into an awareness of Gods presence as they become lost in moments of deep and authentic worship. And for those who haven’t decided to follow Jesus or are unsure, my hope is that through the lyrics that we sing, with the utmost intentionality, they would hear and understand the message of the gospel.” - Tyler Nobes, Rise Worship Team Lead . TONIGHT, we invite you to join us as we worship a great God, who has done great things. See you at the 4PM OR 6PM! 🙌🏾 . #wearerise
