Rise Up Easter Festival

Rise Up

Saturday, April 1 • 3-5pm

Families of all ages are invited to join us as we celebrate our Risen Savior at Rise Up – an Easter festival especially for kids! Join us for pictures with the Easter Bunny, a petting zoo, trackless train, games, crafts, a preschool egg hunt, an elementary Glow Egg Hunt, face painting, popsicles, and so much more! All are welcome – invite a friend! Additional parking and shuttles are available at the NW corner of Custer and Legacy.


Kids are always welcome in worship, and there is a special moment in the middle of the service that children are encouraged to come forward for. Kids may wish to attend Sunday School, or you may wish to have your youngest infants in our professionally staffed nursery. As soon as you enter the Sanctuary, just ask any of our ushers or greeters and they’ll help you get to the Kids area.
