The Youth Ministry at Risen Savior exists to serve the 6th-12th graders of our church by offering events, retreats, serving opportunities, and weekly programming that allows them to grow closer to God and to each other.
High School Ministry (9th-12th grade) :
Risen Savior high schoolers have many options to be involved in fun, life giving events and and leadership positions. There is a weekly worship service every Wednesday night called Sanctuary. Students are also able to attend different retreats, mission trips, and leadership training opportunities, such as our SWAT team.
Middle School Ministry (6th-8th grade) :
We have a lot of fun opportunities for middle schoolers to connect with one another and grow closer to God. Students in 6th-8th grade can attend a Wednesday night fellowship time called Wave. There are some awesome middle school specific retreats, such as our Fall and Spring Castaway Retreats, which are always a highlight of the year!
Partnership with Side by Side Ministries
Side By Side is partnering with your church and other church communities in the Twin Cities to establish clear vision for building effective youth ministry and to provide excellent resources for Youth Ministry programming. We exist to reach youth with the life-giving message of Jesus Christ, to connect them with God and Christian community, to help them grow in their faith, and to empower leaders to serve young people as effective ministers through the power of the Holy Spirit. We hope that these events will be a great opportunity to bless the youth in your church!
