About Uprise

Uprise is our weekly Wednesday night ministry at City Point for students 7-12th grade. It’s an awesome place with worship, friends, small groups, and a message geared towards students and their everyday life. Our heart for students at our church comes out of Ephesians 5:11-16.

Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when eople waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ. Wake up from your sleep, climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light! So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get.

Our goal is to create an environment where students can meet Christ, find community and discover their God-given purpose.

What To Expect


Every student who walks through our doors on Wednesday night is greeted by a group of excited people ready to welcome you to another great night at Uprise! If it is your first visit, that’s awesome. You’ll be directed to a kiosk to give us a little information about yourself. It’s very important for us to know who you are, who your parents are, and how to get in contact in case of emergency and to let you know about upcoming events at Uprise.

Safety is extremely important to us. Our volunteers are background-checked and trained to create a safe, secure environment for every student.


What We Value

We believe every student should know that they matter and that they belong. That's why we do our very best to meet every student where they are at and help them take their next step with God. Whether that's through small group discussions or just hanging out outside of church, having friends & adult leaders in your life can help you experience the full life God has given you.




Students are constantly bombarded with "a way of life" they should pursue and it's our mission to help cut through the noise. By helping students see the lies of the enemy and introducing the new life Christ has for them, they can experience the true freedom found in a personal relationship with Jesus.



It's possible to be saved but still not live in the transformative life Christ died for us. There's plenty of reasons for it; feeling inadequate, fear of failure, sin in your life, peer pressure, lack of support, etc. Whatever the reason, we want to help each student seize the new life that's available to them & remind them of the support they have in Uprise.

What We Do

Wednesday Night Services


We meet every Wednesday, from 7PM - 8:30PM in the City Kids Auditorium at the church. Student drop-off and pick-up is at the back of the building (west side entrance), don't worry you'll see the signs and hear the noise lol. We understand it can be a bit intimidating on your first visit but we promise you our vibe is pretty laid back. A regular night can be summed up this way: hangout, play games, sing worship & hear a message.

Crew Nights

Crew Nights are our monthly small group gatherings. Every 4th Wednesday we split into Mid School & High School groups and meet in separate host homes
High School meets at 1410 Rivercrest Blvd, Allen, TX
Mid School meets at 1209 Wills Point Drive, Allen, TX

Follow us on IG or FB for reminders and any last minute updates for the next Crew Night!

Uprise Social

We get it, sometimes it's easier to connect and get to know others in social settings. That's why Uprise Social exists - once a month hangouts around the Allen area to help build community and foster relationships within the youth group. If Wednesday Nights seem intimidating, come check us out during one of these get-togethers.

Follow us on IG or FB for more details and reminders for the next Uprise Social!

5th Wednesdays

5th Wednesdays are big once a quarter events that happen every, yup you guessed it, fifth Wednesday. While this isn't a normal service with worship & a message, we do try to create a safe & fun environment for students to bring their friends to church and have a great time.

Follow us on IG or FB for details and reminders for our next 5th Wednesday event!
