What to Expect

Relaxed Atmosphere

It's important to us that you can walk in and instantly feel like you're at home.

Casual Dress

Expect jeans, t-shirts, flip flops, and Colts jerseys

Diversity

Just like the world we live in, God's Kindgom is an incredibly diverse place and full of people of all makes, models, sizes, abilities, ages, personalities, and backgrounds. We dream of having a diverse congregation that reflects a picture of Heaven.

Imperfection

Imperfection and brokenness is what drives us to experience life together

Service Time & Info

We host two, identical services Sunday morning at 9:00 & 10:45 a.m.

Rising Hope is located on Cowing Drive, half-way between Wheeling & Oakwood (just a bit north of the Ball State campus.)

Rising Hope Church
1500 W. Cowing Drive
Muncie, IN 47304

There's a big parking lot behind the church building. Simply turn in the drive beside the building and drive around back.

Also, plenty of street parking out front.

After you come in the lobby doors (glass, double doors) you'll find yourself in our church lobby.

Restrooms, kids drop-off, and free coffee are all down the long hallway.

The Auditorium is located right off the lobby... you can't miss it!

Be sure to stop by the Info Desk in the lobby for a special gift for visiting!

Most services last right at 60 minutes, and include a few worship songs to start, then a short time of announcements, followed by a message from one of our pastors, and a final song to wrap up.

You can expect a fun, light-hearted message and a focus on prayer towards the end of each service.

 

You bet! Our kids church (Kids Connection) is available for birth - 5th graders during Sunday service.

Simply head down the long hallway off the lobby to check-in/register your kids.

6th-12th graders attend service with their families and then enjoy youth group on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m.

Groups

We're not meant to do life alone. And part of following Jesus is to open yourself up to other and experience life together

Rising Hope Kids

We come alongside parents and guardians to meet kids where they are, and show them the love of Jesus. Kids of all ages love Rising Hope for the fun activities, bible stories, new friends and more they experience each Sunday!

9:00 service:  Only nursery and toddler rooms open
10:45 service:  All Kids rooms open (Nursery - 5th)

Diversity Matters

Our commitment is to develop a cross-cultural conversation, to foster deeper relationships that will create a Kingdom-focused third culture that embraces biblical ways of viewing God culturally and contextually.

In short, we dream of having a diverse congregation that reflects a picture of Heaven.
Until then, we pray that God will grow our church to be more like Him in every way!
