What is RISE? Based on the story from Mark 2: 1-12 with the four friends, the paralytic, and Jesus, RISE is aimed at forming disciples through intentional small groups (Boys and girls in separate small groups). It is here that teens get to share their lives with one another, form community rooted in Christ, and respond to the command, “RISE” by going out, living as disciples, and bringing others to Christ. Small groups are led by Core Members – Catholic adults who desire to form authentic relationships with the teens while offering support for them (and their families) on their journey.

Structure of RISE? Gather (fellowship, dinner, game/icebreaker), Proclaim (message), Break (small group), and Send (prayer experience). These nights will typically be serious based, spending 3 weeks on a specific theme.
