10% of every offering goes toward outreach.
Outreach at Rise is all about compassion, unity, selflessness, and service. Together we partner with organizations that are making a difference in our community and the world. The goal is to make Jesus famous through our service, and we are thrilled at your desire to join us.
Many churches feel called to serve the homeless, so they start a food kitchen or shelter. Or maybe they feel called to serve families in need, so they start a food pantry. Rather than spread people and resources thin by trying to reinvent the wheel, we believe in partnering with other ministries and organizations that are already making a big impact. By doing this, we can add volunteers and financial resource to projects that are already making a huge difference in our community.
There are opportunities to use your time and talents to support one of our partners or projects every week of the year.
OUTREACH PROJECTS & PARTNERS
CITY WITHOUT ORPHANS
The world has an orphan crisis. There are approximately 147 million orphans in the world. Every number has a name. Every name has a story. We don't call them orphans, but in our community, we still have thousands of orphans who have gone into the foster care system due to abuse, abandonment or neglect. God is calling us to care.
City Without Orphans operates as a bridge connecting the needs of foster & orphaned children with the calling and resources of local churches. They help mobilize the church advocacy, education, support & events.
VISALIA RESCUE MISSION
The Visalia Rescue Mission is a faith-based, non-profit organization, which serves the local community by providing programs, shelters, and meals to homeless men, women, and children. Staffed mainly by volunteers, their food kitchen serves two meals per day, 365 days per year. Sign up to serve meals in the community kitchen.
