We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who can't carry a note in a bucket. You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up or just got out of jail. We don't care if you're more Catholic than the Pope, or haven't been in church since little Joey's Baptism.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps or if you don't like "organized religion," we've been there too.

If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you're welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don't work, can't spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding heart... and you!

News and Coming Events!





On Wednesday, December 24, Christmas Eve, the Children's Department at Arise will be presenting a play celebrating the REAL meaning of Christmas!

The play is entitled "The Reason for the Season" and tells the timeless story of what Jesus' birth means to the world from a unique perspective - the 'Christmas-sy things around the house' - a tree, Christmas card, candles, candy canes....well, you get the idea! You don't want to miss this!!!

The play starts promptly at 6:00 pm - so that everyone can still enjoy their Christmas Eve traditions after 7:00 pm!! See you there!!
