Reaching Up - Building Up - Rising Up
- to fulfill God's purposesThe women’s ministry is a great place to get connected with other women in the church, to build lasting relationships, and “do life” with others who are living out their faith. Women’s ministry events provide a place where real women can get together in a loving, supportive and encouraging environment to have fun while learning, growing and challenging one another.
VisionThe vision of Arise came from seeking the LORD for His heart and His desires for the women of CFTN and Tucson. Every event and everything Arise does will be to glorify God and to reach those who do not yet know Him.
EventsThe ladies of Arise have many events planned for 2016. See the Events page for schedules and listen to the audio for more exciting details.
Invite, invite, invite.
Accessory Exchange and Breakfast PotluckOn March 11, Arise will be hosting a Anccessory Exchange and Breakfast Potluck. Each woman will bring their 'gently used' accessories that no longer fit their wardrobe (or they just want a change). We will then 'shop for free' and choose new accessories. Bring as many as you like. If you don't want to give up any treasures, come anyway, we'll still let you shop.
Any items leftover will be donated to Butterfly Boutique to benefit Springboard Teen Challenge home for girls 12-17.
OutreachOn April 8, Arise will have an outreach event. Details to follow.
Tea and Fashion ShowOn May 6, will will be hosting a Tea and Fashion show. We will have tables setup so the ladies can get to know one another. If you'd like to be a table hostess and show off your hospitality skills, contact Sally. The girls from Springboard will be showing off some of the fashions from Butterfly Boutique and you will be able to see and shop for some gently used items from Butterfly Boutique. You may even be able to bless one of the young ladies with a new outfit.

TestimonyThe testimony of a life rewritten by the grace and love of Jesus Christ is recounted in the audio below.
