“Pastor Brent, Our Executive Leadership Team and our Arise Board made the very difficult decision to suspend all of our public gatherings. We haven’t wanted to cancel our gatherings, but the Bible is clear that we should submit to our governing authorities (1 Peter 2:13-17) and we felt it was the best way of loving our neighbor as we attempt to limit public gatherings and the spread of this virus.
We realize that some will applaud this decision while others will not like it. Just know, this decision was made through much prayer, Godly council and soul searching. We believe that our church will Rise Up and that this will end up being an opportunity for God’s light to shine through us individually during this dark and unprecedented pandemic.
We will be going live often online to keep everyone connected digitally and will still be hosting online services on Sundays, daily live prayer, and other daily content. We are calling this ARISE TV and you can see the schedule for that and for ARISE Kids and ARISE YTH below!”
