Who We Are
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 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
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. A regular night can be summed up this way: hangout, play games, sing worship, hear a message, discuss in Crews. We understand it can be a bit intimidating on your first visit but we promise you our vibe is pretty laid back.
Crews is our small group structure at Uprise. Each Crew has a crew leader that helps facilitate small group discussions on Wednesdays as well as schedules Crew Hangouts that occur once a month outside of Wednesday nights. We have several different groups available, click below to get in contact with a leader and find your Crew!
