Youth - Rise

youth rise logo Greetings from the desk of RISE Student Ministry! We pray this finds you well as we are already nearly one month in to the new year! While its been a relatively quiet month, we have an eventful and Spirit-filled semester ahead of us!

A look into what is coming up, we'll be having our annual Super Bowl Party, with an added twist: trivia! Students are being encouraged to invite friends and will compete as teams for some cool prizes! This is always a fun night, and we're hoping to see some new faces looking for a youth community to be involved in!

REFRESH Small Groups have met on nearly every Wednesday night of the school year at PJ's Coffee in Gonzales. As a smaller gathering of students, this has been a time for them to come together in the middle of the week and be exactly what the name states: refreshed. We check-in with each other's souls, talk about the week, read scripture together and pray for each other, then depart. For most this is a highly anticipated part of their week as it provides a space between RISE on Sundays for students to be reminded of their calling and purpose in Christ.

We ask that you continue to be in prayer for our students as we move through the semester, praying they keep their attention on the cross and that God would remind them of their place in His story.

Peace in Christ,
Zack Pittman
