You matter to God and you matter to us.
You are of infinite worth.
And we’re so glad you’re here.
A Different Kind of Church
Arise is a casual, mere Christian church located in Fenton, Missouri (a suburb of St. Louis). We're not perfect. And we know we don't have all the answers to the many (many) questions that we ask. But we're doing our best to follow King Jesus anyway as we journey together and try to love God and love people in this crazy world.
What This Means for You
Arise is a place where you can come as you are. We encourage you to bring your questions, your doubts, and your hurts. And we invite you to work through them with us. We strive to find deep and relevant meaning in the Scriptures and in community as we seek God together through thick and thin.
What We Do
At Arise, we focus on four things:
Connecting. We're not meant to go through life alone. So we focus on connecting--as a church, as families, as individuals, on Sundays, and throughout the week.
Gathering. We gather together, on Sunday mornings to worship and learn together, and throughout the week to encourage one another and share life.
Growing. As we journey together through this crazy world, we're committed to learning and growing, spiritually, relationally, and practically.
Serving. Following Jesus isn't just about what we get out of it. It's also about how we're part of the Church throughout space and time. So we serve, in the community and in our church, as a way to show of love to God and others.
Arise launched in September 2020 (which, all things considered, was not a great year to start something new). We got our start through Rooftop Church, and while our launch team was largely composed of Rooftoppers, today, we're made up of people from many different backgrounds and experiences from across the St. Louis region.
