Rise Up! Student Ministry is here to be an example for the believers.  These students meet Wednesday at 6:00pm.  Grow Curriculum is used to create learning environments that are informative, engaging, and sometimes challenging.  Grades 4th through 6th meet as Pre-teens.  We know these years can be complicated.  Students are growing up fast and need a place where they can learn how God sees them.  Older students, grades 7th through 12th, meet to focus on their unique daily walk in life.  This pivotal season also goes by fast and the goal is often to simply survive!  Rise Up! is here to create a community where every student knows they matter and belong.  The road through adolescence may be bumpy, but it doesn’t have to be lonely.

Focus Annual Event and Cowboy Camp are two highlights during the year for Rise Up! students.  Focus is an event hosted by Red River Cowboy Church in the Fall to bring together students from our community for an opportunity to focus of binding Christians in faith.  It’s a time for extreme arena activities, energizing praise music, and enlightening truths from God’s Word.  Cowboy Camp is a summer event where students join other AFCC churches for a time like no other!  Students will want to secure their place as soon as registration opens because spaces fill quickly.  In addition to these events, Rise Up! students help with other outreach programs through drama activities and arena events.  Rise Up! Student Ministry is working to build the next generation of Christians that will keep spreading the gospel.

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity”. (1 Timothy 4:12)
