ARISE fka New Community Church of Seventh-day Adventists

NEW COMMUNITY has merged with IGNITE FELLOWSHIP and we meet at 12420 SW 117th Court, Miami, FL 33186. Our NEW worship service is 11:15am At New Community Church, you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and an upbeat-relevant worship experience.

We’re not about “having it all together” or acting like we do. We are simply journeying together, and seeking to know a God who really understands and loves us. We search God’s Living word the Bible, in order to build strong families, and to live meaningful lives, which will impact our communities and glorify God. No matter who you are or where you come from, God loves you and we hope that you find a home away from home here at our church. VISION It is the New Community Church vision to lead people in becoming committed and authentic disciples of Jesus Christ in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. CORE VALUES EXPRESSED IN OUR VISION Five main values emerge out of our community’s desire to follow Jesus Christ as expressed in our vision statement: JOURNEY “…to lead people” We understand that life is a journey, an experience in progress, and that each of us is at a different stage on this path. Thus we encourage you to “come as you are!” Our desire is to come along side of you and share life together. “Together has power… don’t run alone…” GROWTH “… in becoming” We understand that while our eternal destiny has been redeemed and secured in the Cross of Jesus and our salvation is complete in Him, our character is in constant development and transformation into the likeness of the Son of God. None of us is a finished product, we are all a work of art in progress. “He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Jesus Christ”…(Philippians 1:6) COMMITMENT “…committed” As we have experienced the saving grace of Jesus, we have been called to live for Him! We have been “sanctified,” “set apart” to live for God’s honor and glory. We are devoted to God’s mission in the world through His children! “And this is the will of God, your sanctification…” (1 Thessalonians 4:3) GENUINE “… and authentic” Deep within our heart, we long to be known and loved just as we are… Jesus knows us in this intimate way (John 2:25)! And what’s even more amazing, is the fact that He loves us the same! As we are honest with God, then we can begin to be honest with others. BEING A STUDENT “… disciples of Jesus Christ in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.” Jesus has called us to follow Him (Matthew 4:19). To be a Seventh-day Adventist Christian is to follow Jesus, to learn from Him moment by moment, drawing from His Spirit’s anointing in our hearts and the teachings of His Word. A disciple is a student of the Master Jesus, an apprentice of the one who knows all, and loves all! OUR MISSION To exalt Christ, edify his body of believers, for evangelism and social action. OUR HISTORY With the conviction to create a seeker sensitive environment in 1995, a small group of Seventh-Day Adventist Christians came together. By June of 1996, the New Community group began holding Bible studies and worship services at the Pinecrest Presbyterian Church. In June 10, 2000 NCC was officially organized as a church of the Florida Conference of Seventh-Day Adventists. Later that year, we relocated to our present beautiful church setting at Christ Congregational Church. And in November of 2004, New Community was assigned its first full-time lead pastor. OUR FOCUS At New Community, you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in an upbeat-relevant worship experience. We are simply journeying together, and seeking to know a God who really understands us, who loves us and is able to put all the pieces of our often bizarre existence into perspective. We’re about encountering God’s Living word the Bible, in order to find our individual and corporate sense of destiny. In order to build strong families, and to live meaningful lives, which will positively impact our communities and glorify our great God.

Mission: To exalt Christ, edify his body of believers, for evangelism and social action.

ARISE

Dear Arise Miami Family:

Out of the abundance of caution we are suspending our church services for the next two weeks and will invite all of you to join us for our services online.

https://www.youtube.com/c/ARISEMiami

We will begin our livestream at 11:15AM

All of our Life Groups will immediately move towards an online format to avoid putting anyone at risk. We will provide more information as we are able.

We have been informed that the Miami-Dade school district is suspending school as well as GMAA. Multiple events nation, state, and city-wide have been suspended and as such we do not feel it prudent to keep the church open.

I believe that the best we can do as disciples of Jesus is to NOT be purveyors of sickness. Out of love for our community we need to detach for a time.

Please be in prayer. We are asking for God to give us courage and peace during this time.
Please pray for our civic and church leaders to make good and prudent decisions.
Please pray for our medical community to find a breakthrough to arrest this pandemic.
Please pray for those currently sick for God to place his healing hand on them.

Looking forward to connecting with you online tomorrow and in the coming days.

We will continue to communicate with you all through our social media platforms.

Be of good courage,

Kendall

[07/12/19]   PRESS RELEASE

The Ignite Fellowship and New Community Churches Announce Official Name Change to ARISE. This name represents powerfully who God is calling the merged churches to Be and DO in Miami for God’s honor and glory!

Miami, FL. Release Date: For Immediate Release

The Ignite Fellowship and New Community Seventh-day Adventist Churches of Miami have merged into one church and the new name they have chosen to communicate their prayerful, God-inspired vision is – ARISE.

"I have never been a part of such a focused group of leaders. I can feel the energy for this new direction like never before. Our culture has shifted and I can't think of a brand name that better represents our new found mission.", says Jose Romero, member and volunteer of the media and production team.

After a multi-step, prayer filled process with culture architect Kurt Andre of Transformational Coaching and Consulting International, ARISE, has identified six core values, as well as defined their mission and vision. These elements represent what the brand and DNA of ARISE will be moving forward.

"Our church exists to reach the next generation, leading them to experience Jesus so powerfully they become disciple makers. That is our mission. Our core values at ARISE are Jesus and His Word, Acceptance, Innovation, Service, Reaching The Next Generation, and Making Disciple Makers. As long as it is not illegal, immoral, or fattening ARISE will do #whateverittakes to reach the next generation.", says Pastor Kendall Turcios.

ARISE believes that life is better together and invites the church to gather on Saturday mornings at 10:00 A.M. for Bible and Breakfast and 11:15 A.M. for corporate worship at 12420 SW 117th Ct, Miami, FL 33186. ARISE also gathers weekly for life groups in homes and other locations across Miami. More information, live streaming and on-demand video can be found on YouTube, and the church website at http://www.arisemiami.org.

1. Jesus and His Word

3. Innovation
4. Service
5. Reaching the NEXT generation
6. Making disciple makers

After sufficient prayer, deliberation, and an appropriate process allowing for consistent and continual input the name that emerged is: "ARISE"

ARISE will now reflect the new chapter God will continue writing for His honor and glory.

Forgiving your father - even if it’s painfully difficult. It will help you heal

Today, I want to wish all our fathers a warm and happy Father’s Day.

So often we read about men who are not worthy to be called father. But I know of so many men who have gone beyond the call of duty, so to speak, to care for children who are not their own, or whose father doesn’t care enough to be involved in their lives. Today, I salute you.

There are many kinds of fathers.

I salute those fathers who are teachers and who have to take on the extra roll of being a surrogate father to their students.

I salute those neighborhood men, who although they have children of their own, take it upon themselves to step in to help a fatherless child.

And I salute the spiritual fathers, who head houses of worship with all the responsibility that goes with that job, and yet find the time to counsel and encourage the fatherless in their congregations.

When I was growing up, our dad was an absentee father. My brother Adam, and I didn’t even have a relationship with him until we were young adults with children of our own.

It was at that time we felt we should put aside our anger and bitterness toward him for what he did or didn’t do for us, to let him get to know his grandchildren. It was the right move.

On one particular Father’s Day, my brother and I decided to spend the day with our dad. We loaded our children in our cars and drove to where our dad lived in Central Florida, and took him and his wife to dinner. It was a sad, and yet rewarding time for us.

Dad was so overwhelmed with our visit that he couldn’t eat. He kept his head bowed to keep us from seeing his tears. Men from his era didn’t show that kind of emotion.

He never said why he was crying, but my brother and I knew: Dad was crying over the lost years he had missed out with us — our graduations, my wedding, the birth of our children.

We understood. We had already forgiven Dad a hundred times over. We were there that day because we wanted him to know we loved him in spite of whatever happened in the past. We wanted to wipe the slate clean.

Our reaching out to Dad was our way of letting him know that he was forgiven. And our lives were better because we made the effort to meet with our dad on his special day to let him know we loved him. It was a trip worth taking.

Dad’s been gone nearly 20 years. I still miss him and wish we could have had more time together. But I am thankful for the time we did have with him. And I believe the experience of growing up without a dad helped my brother to be the kind of dad to his children he wished he had had.

I don’t know how many estranged dads and children will read my column today. I am praying that my little story of forgiveness will reach the heart of some son or daughter or father, who is having a hard time being reconciled with their loved ones.

My advice to you is, just do it. Life is too short to hold grudges. Maybe you feel that you suffered so much pain from your dad that you can’t forgive him. But you can, if you understand that not forgiving is keeping you from having the full and happy life you deserve. Forgiving actually is for you. It will make you healthier and happier, because once that burden of unforgiveness is lifted, you will feel so much better.

Children need their fathers, no matter how old they are. Fathers need their children, too. So on this Father’s Day, if you are holding out on forgiving your dad for something he has done to you, try a little forgiveness. Maybe your dad is no longer alive. Forgive him anyway. And maybe he is alive, but doesn’t want to speak to you. Forgive him anyway. You will be the better for doing so.

miamiherald.com On this Father’s Day, reconnect with your dad, even if he may not have been part of your life growing up. Forgiving your father will help you heal.
