Connect

Arise Church Growth Track guides you to discover your redemptive purpose and live the life God created for you. The Growth Track is made up of four steps that equip you to connect to the church, discover the strengths of your purposeful design, develop your personal leadership, and use your God-given gifts to make a difference in the lives of others.

Learn the spiritual journey that God has for each of us: to follow Jesus.

Step One happens the first Sunday of every month.

Explore the ministry of Arise Church and find out how to connect with us.

Step Two happens the second Sunday of every month.

Discover your personality and spiritual gifts and see how they indicate your purpose in life and your best fit in ministry.

Step Three happens the third Sunday of every month.

Connect to the opportunities available at Arise Church to live out your purpose and serve others by using your gifts.

Step Four happens the fourth Sunday of every month.

Small Group Study: Take It To The Limit – Andy Stanley

Small Group Content: Come back from the edge Overloaded? Maxed out? Our culture encourages us to live as if we have no limits. So we fill our schedules and empty our bank accounts. We do as much as we can, spend as much as we can, and acquire as much as we can—all in an effort to get as much as we can out of life. In this six-part study, Andy Stanley explains that that the secret to getting more out of life is not doing more, but doing less. We must learn to create margin to live the life God intended for us.

Small Group Study: Befriend– Scott Sauls

Small Group Content: Is real friendship too risky? We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat to the safety of our small, self-made digital worlds. Tragically, even the church can become a place that reinforces this isolation. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Pastor and teacher Scott Sauls invites Christians to see the breadth of Christ’s love toward people we often avoid. In this 6-session series, Scott outlines principles for befriending those around us with the love of Jesus.

Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our lives will remain impoverished. Learn what it means to be a good friend in an age of judgment, isolation, and fear.

Small Group Study: Identity Defined – Pete Briscoe

Small Group Content: How would you define yourself? We live in a world that is constantly trying to define us based on achievement, financial standing, appearance, or popularity. Many of us struggle under the force of these lies, and we end up believing false perceptions of ourselves. But if you’re in Christ, there’s good news—He defines your identity! So what is our identity as Christians? In this 6-message series, Pete Briscoe shares how Scripture defines who we are in Christ. He reminds us we are more than any definition society may give us. Pete’s teaching will have you reconsidering who you really are. In Christ, you have a new identity, and if you grasp it, it can change your reality today!
