Welcome to the Uprising!

August 28, 2015

Hey New Life,

We have some exciting news with our 6th – 8th grade students at New Life Christian Church beginning this Fall! We are launching our own, unique ministry for 6th, 7th and 8th graders starting September 13th. At this age, students are looking for their own identity and their own place to belong. Because of this, we are really excited to start this so they can discover who they are and who God has created them to be.

IMG_9322We are calling this group: The Uprising.  These students are a rising generation that are seeking to know God, seeking to understand their role in Gods story, and seeking opportunities to influence their friends, schools and communities for Jesus.

The Uprising will meet Sunday mornings during the 11:00am service at New Life. Students will attend worship in the main auditorium and then be dismissed to the Keg Room for our own fun, teaching and small group time. Each week we will walk students through the Bible and help them understand how all of the Bible points to Jesus. Through small group time students will grow in community with one another and their leaders to apply the teachings of the Bible to their personal lives.

The students will also be able to attend a Home Group specifically designed for them. We currently have one that meets in South Riding. Our goal is to have multiple home groups located in the communities that students live in. These home groups meet in a more personal setting that allows for students to further build community and develop their relationship with Jesus. If you are in interested in hosting a home group in your area we would love to talk with you about this opportunity.

To equip you, each week we will be updating you on what the students are learning, upcoming social activities and questions to ask your students to delve deeper with them about some of our discussions. At New Life we believe that the parents are the primary influencers in kids lives. Our mission is to provide you with resources, questions, and advice to do just that.

If you have any questions about The Uprising or would like to get involved, please contact Cory Sullivan. A generation is rising!
