North Carolina Presbyterian ARISE is a movement of
Christian renewal based in the beliefs of the Christian Church. An ARISE retreat is an encounter with Christ in which the
participants become part of a community abounding in Gods grace. It is a weekend based on faith building and strengthening
of relationships both with Christ and other youth. ARISE is a God centered community, in which a wide variety of youth grow
together in fun, fellowship and worship of Jesus Christ. On your journey of faith, ARISE is a stepping stone that can give
you an awareness of your responsibilities as a Christian. During the three days of an ARISE weekend, youth and adults come
together from all over North Carolina to grow in their faith. For more info, click here to view the guest application.

Adams, a graduated member of the Senior Youth, is an active volunteer in ARISE. After her initial retreat weekend, when asked
about ARISE, she said, "ARISE is my sunshine after the rain, the best thing that has ever happened to me."
