The Uprising

Who We Are:  

We are students in grades 6-12

whom God is raising up

to be sent out

to love and serve like Jesus.  

Youth Group

Every Wednesday night at 7:00 we get together for a youth worship service.  We spend the first part of our time worshiping with our youth band.  Then Pastor Julie or a guest speaker will share a message from the Bible.  These messages are meant to:  

               1) Help us get to know God

               2) Encourage us

               3) Give us the tools we need to love and serve like Jesus


Music is a huge part of who we are.  Our youth band is led by Andrew Perry.  Each week at The Uprising, Andrew and the band lead us in worship.  Singing and playing music helps us connect with God by focusing our hearts and minds on Him.  

If you're interested in joining the band, just let Andrew or Pastor Julie know!  

Don't play an instrument?  No problem!  We can teach you!  

Before you know it, you'll be on stage leading worship with the band!


We love finding new ways to love and serve our local community and our world!  Whether we are at home in Van Wert or in another country, we strive to meet people at their point of need, bringing a message of hope and healing

with our words and with our deeds!

Special events

Throughout the year, we take a break from our busy schedules to spend time enjoying God and each other!

We have a TON OF FUN swimming, carving pumpkins, snow tubing, 

attending camps and retreats, and more!
