All students in 8th grade attending faith formation at CtR for 2016-17 will be attending Rise which takes place from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. You can visit the Rise homepage to learn more about what happens at Rise.
Each 8th-grade student is placed in a small group based on their gender and which middle school they attend. Each small group is facilitated by an adult Core Team member and a high school Teen Leader. Small groups provide a setting where students break open and discuss the topic that was covered in the large group session and apply it to their everyday lives.
If your child misses a Rise night, whether excused or unexcused, they must complete the make-up assignment for that night. The make-up work consists of watching the video of the large group sessions and answering a set of reflection questions. All of the Rise videos and make-up worksheets can be found on the Rise page. Students can turn in their make-up work at the check-in desk the following week at Rise.
The 8th-grade students may also choose to be enrolled in our Home-based Catechesis program instead of Rise to fulfill their 8th-grade faith formation. Please contact Kyle (email@example.com) for more information about our Home-based program.
