Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce
Celebrates the New Southshore Campus
Of ARISE Church
On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) members along with our friends from the Brandon and SouthShore Chambers, gathered to celebrate the new Southshore campus of member, ARISE Church. All who entered were greeted by friendly leaders of the church. Tours of the newly revamped location were provided and refreshments were enjoyed. Many of the church’s pastors were on hand to officially welcome attendees.
ARISE operates with 7 core values – People, Relationships, Authenticity, Growth, The Next Generation, God’s Presence, and Creativity. At ARISE they exist to experience God and strive to create a fun and exciting environment where relationships are more important than a ritual. There is a strong emphasis on youth and the church offers several programs aimed at engaging children and teens. The Southshore location is even equipped with a meeting room just for teens, resembling a café setting with dimmed lighting and a cool, modern ambiance. Campus Pastor Mike Braddock is hopeful that the presence of the church and engaging with the local community will encourage more Southshore residents to join them on Sunday mornings.
ARISE Church has an original location in Brandon and the organization found many of their parishioners were traveling from the Southshore area to join them in worship. The opening of the Southshore campus will bring convenience to their members who were previously making the drive to Brandon and also provide the opportunity to deepen the church’s outreach in the region.
The celebratory ribbon was cut inside the church in the main lobby area. GRCC Past President, Joe Eletto – Century 21 Beggins delivered a proclamation. He recognized October 29, 2019 to be ARISE Church Day! And reminded all who gathered that ARISE Church invites you to come and join The Movement.
The ARISE Church Southshore campus is located at 3048 E College Ave, Ruskin FL 33570. This is just off the exit for 674 College Avenue from I-75 and just across the street from our friends at Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
