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 Book of Nehemiah

Current Series - The Book of Nehemiah

The story begins as Nehemiah, the prophet, receives news about the tragic state of his city Jerusalem. Most notably the city walls are in ruins. The heart of Nehemiah is instantly broken for the people of his city. After a time of weeping and fasting for God to move, Nehemiah is given a great burden to rise up and do something about it. Sometimes that's exactly how God moves. We pray for God to do something about the brokenness we see around us, and God answers that prayer by calling us to stand up and do something great.

Meet Esther Yeager! She is starting a City Group this Fall! ๐Ÿ‚ . Q: Why are you starting a City Group? RISE is growing fast and our existing groups are bursting at the seams, which is wonderful! I want everyone to have a place where they can gather with a small group of people and share life together. I want us to become family. I also have a heart for those who may not feel like they belong; unmarried, childless, divorced, students, and those who are undecided about Jesus in the first place. We can all belong at RISE and we all belong in a City Group. . Most weekends you'll find her outside. Hiking, backpacking, climbing, floating. ๐ŸŒฒThe rain won't stop her from a hike or having a Jane Austen movie marathon! ๐ŸŽฌ . If you are interested in joining Esther's group, please email esther@rise.cc. You can find out about more groups by visiting the link in profile!! . #wearerise

This weekend the Team Leads of Rise went on a retreat to be equipped as leaders in our church. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป . This was a weekend not just to get away or relax, but to grow in their skills and capabilities as they serve our church. They explored leadership, trained, and planned. . Why so much work? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ . Because there is no higher or more significant cause than leading the Church that Jesus bought with His blood on mission in a city that matters like Gresham. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ . We are thankful for each Team Lead and thankful for the teams they represent. It's through people rising up to humbly serve Jesus that we will saturate our city with the Gospel as Jesus has called. ๐Ÿ‚ . #wearerise

Meet Justin + Stephenie Olson! They are starting a City Group this Fall! ๐Ÿ‚ . Q.Why did you start a City Group? A. We wanted to start a City Group to get to know others at Rise on a deeper level. To grow and live life with others. A phrase that God has been putting on my heart for the last two years is to "deepen community." Fun Facts: Justin played minor league baseball in the Midwest and Stephenie polevaulted in college. And they have a three legged dog. ๐Ÿถ On the weekends you'll usually find them trying to get outside: Hikes, gardening, yard work, BBQ-ing, or going to a park. ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿผ .

IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT!! . When Nehemiah finds his city in ruins he cries out to YHWH, only to be driven out to unite God's people for this purpose: to rise up to build. To build the walls and in effect rebuild hope within his city. Nehemiah was sent by the God of grace to do something great in his city. . That same call goes out today. You are called to do something great. Journey with us through the story of Nehemiah this fall ๐Ÿ‚ and be challenged to answer the call of God on your life. This series has the potential not only to show you an adventure that happened in 445 B.C., but to invite you into one happening in our city today. ๐ŸŒ‡ . See YOU at the 4PM/6PM!! . #wearerise

One way we can practice Sabbath is by intentionally resting from spending money. In our commerce-driven world, we can easily get caught up in both the convenience and luxury of buying things, even food. However, in intentionally abstaining from spending money on the Sabbath, we can commit ourselves to trusting the Lord for providing for our needs. In addition, we can focus on patterns of injustice those in systematic poverty and those who work to provide our goods often face. . Today, we will be praying through the Lord's Prayer, trusting Him to provide our daily bread and inviting His Kingdom to come with righteousness and justice for those oppressed by our world and its systems. . Pray through the following verses as many times as you feel called. . Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be your name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. . #wearerise

City Groups, our small group communities, are where people from Rise gather together in their homes to spend time growing in friendship so we can encourage each other in life and mission. . THREE reasons why YOU should join one: 1๏ธโƒฃCity Groups are the best way to pursue discipleship in community -- to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus as we do life together. 2๏ธโƒฃCity Groups are the best way to be cared for in your everyday life and means. We come alongside one another like family -- to be known and loved. 3๏ธโƒฃCity Groups make an impact on our city for the gospel -- we challenge one another to take the gospel with you in every area of your life. . Our City Group Block Parties will be September 19th, 20th, & 21st -- all across our city! ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿธโ˜€๏ธ . Check out the link in profile to learn more, and to find one meeting near you!! . #wearerise

We had a killer time together last night at the Rise Volunteer Party!!๐ŸŽ‰ . The mission of Rise City Church is not moved forward by a small group of central leaders, but by an army of believers that humbly serve as volunteers. . We are a community striving to follow hard after our great King Jesus, who knelt to humbly serve us and wash our feet. . THANK YOU to all of our volunteers serving Christ faithfully (๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ1 Cor 15:58). . We give all glory to the Chief Shepherd and lead servant, King Jesus. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

"Prayer is not some small thing. It is not some marginal thing. It is not some incidental thing in the Christian life. Prayer is at the heart of why God created the universe. You may have the modern, secular notion that the universe is really about great galactic events and supernovas and remarkable expanses of time and space and energy. But in reality the center of the created universe is man created in the image of God. And the meaning of man in the image of God is to display God's glory. And the way God delights to display his glory in man is by being depended on through prayer." . At Rise, we want to glorify God through praying. Because of this, we have an incredible team of people, literally on the edge of their seats ready to pray. Head over to our Rise App to submit a prayer request. (This can even be done anonymously!) ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“ฑ . Today, we encourage you to depend on God, through prayer. Depend on Him for the request you think is too small to ask. Depend on Him for the thing you think is to large to ask. Depend on the God who created great galactic events - the Creator of the universe. . #wearerise
