We believe it is better to give than to receive! Therefore, each Christmas we take up a special offering and give it ALL away.

On December 11th, we are challenging the people of Rise City Church to give above and beyond to help fund this year’s incredible 10th anniversary, “10 for 10” initiatives, as well as your personal nominations of people you want to see receive a special blessing this Christmas.

Learn more about each of the 10 incredible organizations this year’s Rise City Christmas Offering will be supporting.
