September 11th is "Back to Church" Sunday!

Andy Peck is returning to Arise with his bass to join Adam in leading the praise band in worship. Jessica will be here as well to sing a song or two. We will have some great refreshments, including the return of Tina Cary’s cupcakes. September 11th is the kick-off for Sunday School as well! Mrs. Wagner and Ms. Barb have missed your smiling faces over summer break and are eagerly waiting to teach the kids about God’s love.

We hope that all of you will make an effort to be in church on the 11th. Reach out to people you haven’t seen in a while and tell them you’d love to see them there too. Invite a friend and join us at 10 am this Sunday. 😊

About Our Worship Service

Arise's worship services are warm and friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. We sing a mixture of hymns and contemporary songs led by our praise band. Time is spent on scripture reading, studying, and reciting the church's creeds. We have dedicated prayer time and conclude with a sermon. The sermon averages about 16 to 18 minutes, and the full service closes within an hour.

Who We Are at Arise

We're a group of ordinary people hoping to be used by God to do the extraordinary! We try very hard to accept people as they are. We value gathering together as a Christian community, believing that we're at our very best when we work together to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

We have a keen understanding that the Church is not the building but the people. Woven deep within the DNA of the people of Arise Church is the desire to help people experience the love of God. We help people understand that here, you belong, just because you are a child of God. Arise United Methodist Church is a place "Where Faith & Friends Connect." We invite you to look around and encourage your questions. We are eager to have you visit us in worship soon.

Statement of Faith

We believe

Holy Cross

We believe that there is one God, eternally present in: God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and Earth; God the Son, Jesus Christ; and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus of Nazareth, was and is the expected Messiah. He was fully human and fully divine; conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary.

We believe in His sinless life, in His miracles, and that He voluntarily laid down His life in our place. After suffering under Pontius Pilate, He was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day, He bodily rose from the dead; and returned to heaven. He sits at the right hand of the Father; He will judge both the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit lives today in the church created by the sacrifice made by Christ. We believe that the church founded by Christ is timeless and universal encompassing all people and nationalities.

We believe in the communion of saints. We believe that in confessing our sins, they are forgiven. We believe that our bodies will be resurrected after the example of Christ, and that our life with Him will have no end.

We believe that Christ died for everyone and all are called to faith in Christ. We understand that each disciple's walk will be different, and each disciple grows in God’s time.

We believe that God invites questions, even if they express doubt.

We believe that questions lead to faith, and God’s truth stands up to any challenge.

We believe in the power of prayer. We believe that when we pray, we have to surrender all things to God's will, and offer ourselves to be transformed as part of His plan.

We believe the Bible is divinely inspired, and is the authoritative Word of God. We believe that through it, He speaks to us today.

We believe that the purpose of the church is to draw and form disciples to continue His mission and ministry in the world.
