JOINING US FOR THE FIRST TIME
We would love for you to visit us in person and be one of our Guest VIP’s. We spend most of our time and energy in creating a worship experience for people just like you. It is our desire that all who walk through our doors experiences the presence of God like they have never before. We know visiting a church for the first time is often overwhelming so we do our best to make your time with us as meaningful and comfortable as possible. During every service we do acknowledge all our first time guest but we don’t make you raise your hand, stand up or make them feel uncomfortable. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” and that’s fine with us! So come in, grab a free cup of coffee, enjoy the service, and see if this is the church for you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR
At Rise Church, there is no dress code. We believe God cares more about the condition of your heart rather than your outward appearance. Feel free to dress up, or come in jeans and a favorite t-shirt, whatever makes you comfortable.
WHEN YOU DRIVE UP
From the moment you pull onto the property, you will feel the excitement of the weekend worship experiences at Rise Church. You will notice our signs and banners in front of Ho’okele Elementary School and along Kapolei Parkway. We want to make sure that you don’t miss us especially if you are visiting us for the very first time. There is plenty of parking at Ho’okele Elementary School and if you need additional help in finding a parking space you will notice that we have parking attendants to assist you.
As you exit your vehicle make your way to the entrance of Ho’okele Elementary School where you will find our guest lounge. We work hard to create an environment that is welcoming. While here you will be welcomed by a few of our greeters and staff to help and assist you in any way. We also have light refreshments for you and your family to enjoy.
SOMETHING FOR YOUR CHILDREN
If you have keiki and you would like for them to experience a fun, safe and secure children’s program designed just for them simply check them in at the Rise Kids welcome area. When you enter the building, you’ll see our clearly marked Rise Kids check-in area. Just follow the directional signs that say Rise Kids or you can simply ask one of the Rise Team Members, they will be happy to walk you over. We have a special line for first time guests to give you a hassle free experience. To make things even easier you can fill out a simple form by clicking the red button below and pre-register your children for our electronic check–in. This allows us to print your child’s tag in a matter of seconds when you arrive. We also make sure that all our Rise Kids staff have had a background check and adequate training.
We currently have Children’s + Student Programs on Sunday Mornings for the following ages: Rise Kids (Infant – 5th Grade) + Rise 678 (6th – 8th Grade).
Rise High (9th – 12th Grade) Currently meets once to twice a month depending on the event. Rise High plays a vital role in the life of the church on Sundays. You will see Rise High Students serving in every area and aspect of the church. We have found that involving our teenagers in serving and leading it shapes them into becoming all that God has purposed them to be.
FINDING A SEAT
As you enter the auditorium you will be welcomed and our ushers can help you find a seat or feel free to sit wherever you are the most comfortable. Once you find a seat sit back, relax and enjoy the worship experience.
WHAT WILL THE SERVICE BE LIKE
We prepare each service to be exciting, creative, relevant and applicable to your life. Services run about 75-90 minutes total, including live music from our Rise Music Team than followed up by a practical, powerful and encouraging message from Pastor Jonathan or one of our Campus Pastors.
If you have any questions along the way, any of our team members would be happy to help you out. We hope to see you soon!
