Our Rise Up group is for any student in grades 9-12. 
After meeting via Zoom all summer, we will be back meeting in person in the church parking lot every other Friday night from 6:30-8:00 pm beginning Friday, 9/18.
The youth ministry at Heritage hopes to help students better understand themselves and the world around them in a way that is consistent with the teachings of the Bible.  We long to see students get connected with more mature Christians who can help them become disciples of Christ and good citizens in their community, school, and church.  Youth in grades 9-12 are invited to join us each week for Rise Up as well as other special events.  During the school year we meet every other Friday night, from 6:30-8:00 pm.  

I believe our students are making many decisions now that will be impacting the rest of their lives.  Rise Up recognizes this and functions to help parents as a positive influence in helping the children turn their lives to Christ and his mission on Earth. The teaching focus of Rise Up therefore is to help the students see how living for self glorification will fly in the face of joy, peace, fulfillment, and love whereas glorifying God is the only way to find joy, peace, fulfillment, and love.
