Original Post: Romulus is starving for a move of God! Romulus is home to over 24,000 people, but unfortunately Two-Thirds of the city has no religious affiliation; yes thats over 16,000 people that DON'T know Jesus here!
But here’s the good news. We are on a mission to change that, we are here to be salt and light, to be the ones that are known for making disciples. For introducing people to the life change that only Jesus provides.
Here’s the challenge: It’s very difficult for new churches to exist in Romulus as there are not a lot of opportunities to rent a space. When we launched on October 24th 2021, we utilized the only venue in town that could accommodate our new church. We launched with over 200 people in attendance it was truly amazing. Unfortunately due to covid and other challenges, we were informed in December that we could no longer meet in the facility. This has left our brand new church without a facility over the past 3 months. We are utilizing our virtual tools to the best of our ability but we need to physically come together, help each other, lend a helping hand together, in person.
With the current landscape of Romulus, there are a limited number of available properties that can truly accommodate a church. This has resulted in other churches in times past, starting here but not staying here. The reality for a new church in Romulus is: if you are going to plant and make a large impact, you have to have the capital to purchase a facility and make it your own.
Well we found a place that would be the perfect home for Rise in the downtown district. The city of Romulus has a great vision to revitalize this area. They have a great master plan to bring businesses, restaurants, and new opportunities to this area. There’s only one problem, they need an increase in traffic in this area, to help entice entrepreneurs and businesses to come here.
This is where we as Rise Church come in. We dont want to just be a church that meet on Sundays, we want to serve our community daily. We want to help families business owners, people not just in their Christian walk, but make an impact and help them Rise to their God-given potential. We want to partner with our city and city officials to help make this dream of revitalizing a city, a reality.
There are so many things that we can do here to breathe new life into our community. From the vision, we can see, a youth playscape, cafe with public wifi, a nice multipurpose space, classrooms, and a life skills center to help the young people of Romulus be prepared for adulthood and many more programs to lead the charge in making an impact in the lives of Romulus Residents.
Realizing the impact we have as a church, not only will we have a facility as a tool to help spread the mission of Jesus but we can help provide the traffic necessary to populate this area and help bring businesses to this area to spark the growth and change that this city deserves. Literally we as a church will help turn the tide of the city!
We are asking you to jump in and get involved with us! We need your help to make this vision a reality. We are asking if you would consider making a contribution to our efforts of having this facility as the new home for Rise Church. Your contribution is not just going toward a facility for a church, but its sowing into the kingdom of God, to be the church, serve the community, and change the pulse of a city. And we have faith that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ever ask or think.
