The question of “why am I here?” has been on humanity’s mind for millennia - and God has always answered it. Our struggle is with the humility it requires to accept the answer. The reason for why God made us lies in his desires - not needs.

Fear, anxiousness, doubt, worry, depression, and other words we all love. This QnA Sunday dives in and starts to dismantle these issues in our lives.
The validity of the bible & being afraid of God are topics that are discussed all over the world in private & public conversations. Is there a logical or rational way to find the answer? Is it all up to our own experiences and opinions? Or is there an answer in all the arguing?
Today we discuss two topics that are surprisingly related – faith & hearing. Have you ever doubted your own faith? What about the faith of another? How can we reach those that we see are under CLEARLY false teachers or teachings? Then, how can I really know I am hearing God? How do I really know it’s Him and not someone else?
QnA Sunday time again – this week, it’s one topic,but a heavy one: forgiveness. What in your life are you holding onto because it was so evil, so horrible that you can’t let go? What in your past has shaped you today – but negatively? What “issues” do you have today because of what someone did yesterday? Christ died to free us with His UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. When we choose to not forgive, this cuts off our God’s love and makes us God...
This is our 5th Sunday event, Family Integrated QnA Service. We have kids & adults ask questions live and then we answer them!
We can sometimes make our preferences or personal convictions into something that determines our value in front of people and God. Today we tackle two questions thatare centered in that arena: Soul Sleep & Singing
Christianity has been under attack since Jesus established it. Even His teachings of belief-based righteousness were attacked – even though He’s been teaching since time began. Often times we seen historical movements that try to return us to our roots and get us thinking about our past. While they remind us of much, theirs a temptation to think that our past defines our future – it doesn’t. If we forget this and get into a lifestyle that guilts us into faith we get weary. Today’s QnA Sunday tackles just these 2 things – law-keeping & weary faith.
If you’ve listened to the teachings at Rise Chapel for any period of time, you’ve heard the phrase, “the bible is not written TO us but FOR us” That statement forces the student of the scriptures to seek out more than just a personal, feel-good quote but to dig out what is really in the verses being studied. Today’s question prompts that method to be discussed. Want to get more out of your bible today? Check out this QnA Sunday!
This month’s QnA Sunday is powerful – we talk about a very often confusing topic related to prayer & Jesus. Then we jump right into the validity of other denominations and religions. An exciting time discussing some great questions!
This week for Q&A Sunday we have two questions that are very common among Christians and among atheists the first one asks why there is evil in this world and the second one is related to how to share with people about the goodness of God - even if we're new to Him. I hope that you're challenged by this and that you see God differently because of what he shows you today.
Money & Jesus – that’s all we will talk about today. And really, that’s all we struggle with – the mastership over our life can come from our creator, and that will motivate us to HIS goals. Or, the mastership will comes from the created, and that will motivate us to our goals. Which do you choose?
Our preferences and our views on moral dilemmas will form our decisions. Just because we believe we have taken the “above and beyond” moral road we may not be right in God’s eyes. Today we tackle some difficult questions related to sin, marriage (homo/hetero), & parenting. Very difficult topics but God does have a priority structure for us to consider.
We all have a burning question we have wanted to ask. This week we have three great ones! They are related to temptation, the right way to close a prayer, & the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Remember, you can submit questions online at anytime @ risechapel.com/questions
This weekend is just like the other weekends – wild and crazy QnA Weekend! This time we tackle some more sensitive topics (literally and figuratively). First, we discuss seeing the face of God – what is that all about? Second, we delve into a simple but important question, “What is the deal with circumcision?”
The August QnA is here! And so are the GREATquestions. We tackle, “How strong is God?”, “What is the deal with “Losing our salvation” versus “Once saved, always saved”?, and finally, “How can God keep loving us after all we have done and keep doing?”
This month’s Q&A followed the pattern of everyother one – VERY interesting and difficult questions to answer but the answers are life transforming for us all. The topics are: What to do when life is dry with God & what’s all this about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?
Q&A Sunday is always special and this week is no exception. We have: "How do we know that Christianity is the true?", "Are there levels of sin? Meaning, are some worse than others?", "What does, 'Life isn't over until God is done with us' mean?".
QnA Sunday – The May Edition. On the list are some great questions & topics: Prayer for the sick, Communion, & Forgiveness. QnA Sunday has become a huge blessing to many and I challenge all of us to pray about who we will invite to these special days.
