As we prepare to launch our weekly worship services this summer, I put together a 4-page document that I am calling our church plant’s Launch Packet. It outlines specific prayer needs for our launch season, 2 unique serving opportunities we are hosting all throughout the summer, as well as projects/initiatives that need financial underwriting. I will be sharing 1 page for our Launch Packet each day for the next 4 days. Thanks for journeying with us as we plant Rising Church in Leesburg, VA!
Email Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive the Launch Packet in its entirety.
Short-term Mission Weekend
We are offering 4 short-term weekend mission trips during the summer of 2015. These weekends are designed to give your team exposure to the life of a church plant and what it can look like to serve a community. In addition to serving our church and community, our hope is that your team will be inspired by their time with us and see how easy and accessible it is to serve your own community. The mission weekends are scheduled for July 10-12, July 24-26, August 7-9, and August 21-23.
4:00pm Arrive in Leesburg, VA / check into hotel
4:30pm Meet up with the Rising Church team
5:00pm Community event: movie or live music on the lawn
10:00pm Return to hotel

The cost of a short-term mission weekend is similar to a 1-Day Serve but you will also need to include your hotel rooms and both lunch & dinner on Saturday. For more information about participating in a weekend short-term mission trip, email Jason at email@example.com.
