Rising to Meet the Need.
Sunday Worship Live Stream at 11:00 a.m.
In order to meet the highest level of safety measures for our congregation and to be a responsible member of our Austin community, upRising worship will be online only (through Facebook Live) until further notice.
We are offering a variety of additional online community activities for all of our members and friends during this time, and you can see a full schedule in our News & Notes electronic newsletter. If you do not already receive our newsletter, you can sign up easily at the bottom of this page. If you have ideas, questions, or needs that you want us to know about, please send an email to upDates@uprisingaustin.org.
Always in Hope,
MCC Austin is now upRising–a church without walls. In searching for our new name, we didn’t want a name that just described one piece of us—just our welcome, advocacy for lgbtq people, MCC roots, or passion for social justice. We wanted a name that said we are people who believe in the good news of the Gospel, that our human nature can be transformed to the nature of Jesus Christ, and that the truest expression of our faith is how we act in the world.
We are people in whom love, hope, joy, and peace rise up. Who will rise up for justice. Who will rise up for the least of these even when, and especially when, we are the least of these. Who inspire others to rise up with us.
We wanted a name that will inspire us never to become complacent. Even in the moments when we are still and know that God is God, our spirits are rising.
We believe our new name captures all of that. We would love for you to come and worship with us or join us for one of our many programs and outreach ministries and experience upRising for yourself.
