Rise Church Small Group Ministries Team provides opportunities for all persons to feel safe, accepted, grow in love, trust and Christian living, both in the church and in the world. The Team supports existing groups, and focusses on creating new groups under five broad categories/interests:
1. Spiritual Growth and Discipleship
2. Sharing and Mutual Support
Recent new groups have included: Short term book studies on listening, making transitions in life, and social justice. Gathering at the Watering Hole – a place to gather, share and build relationships. A trip to the Japanese Museum of Oregon, book study and discussion. Handiworks gathering for knitting, crochet, appliqué work, quilting and conversation. Ageless Wonders – beginner chair yoga.
