Programs


We continually try to offer new programs to meet the growing needs within our community.  In addition to adding new programing, we continue to offer our tried and true programs which have been an anchor to our ministry.

After School 

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Psalms 90:12

Rise and Shine is committed to offering the much needed resources and opportunities to create a culture of learning and a desire to continue education.  

We do this by offering tutoring daily Monday through Thursday.  Our tutors consist of current and former educators within the Millville School system.  

We offer "Study Buddies".  This is a group of successful high school students who are willing to lend their skills to a younger child.  

Rise and Shine provides all necessary school supplies as well as any supplies needed for assignments and projects.  

We expose our children and youth to resources needed to go beyond high school.  Through programing in coordination with Rowan South Jersey, our youth are informed of what awaits as they take that next step into college or a trade.  We want our youth to have every opportunity to rise above their circumstances.

Summer Camp

After a long school year, everyone needs a break.  Our Summer Camps give us the opportunity to continue to build relationships with our children and youth.  They also give us a time to just have fun!  We offer camps for specific age groups during June and July and open August up to all age groups for our "Beyond Camp".  During camp week the children will learn Bible verses, have Bible lessons, meet speakers from throughout our community exposing them to new topics, resources and career ideas. Making crafts, playing games and building lasting relationships.  There will be field trips.  We think taking trips out of our day to day surroundings is vital to our kids and youths ability to let their guard down and just be kids.  Our Beyond Camp is spent doing missions throughout Millville, working on our reading and math skills, getting ready for school.  Bible lessons and swimming.  All summer we provide breakfast and lunch to all children.  Everything we do is at absolutely no cost to the family, it is through many generous individuals, organizations and grant funding that we are able to do what we do.  To God be the Glory. 

The Lord replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

Exodus 33:14

 

Life Groups

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. 

Ecclesiastes 4:12

Women's Life Group

This group is made up of a very diverse group of women.  Meeting every Monday night we discuss topics, difficulties and strategies through a Kingdom lens.  Working to become the women that God has created us to be.  By setting goals, listening to each others view on issues, various book studies, accountability and the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.

Men's Life Group

This group of young men have come together on a journey to becoming the men God has created them to be.  Most do not know what that looks like, they journey through the Bible to discover men of God, learning to navigate through the social, ethical and relevant issues that challenge the men of today.  Yearly this group of men go on a camping trip where they fish, cook, relax, talk and grow in Christ.

Teen Girls Life Group

Being a teen is difficult to say the least.  In today's culture, being told anything goes...How can you possibly know what to do, where to focus?  By working to understand God's Word.  Together, holding each other up, staying strong, being accountable and falling in love with Jesus.
