Christmas with RISE and Friends!

This past week has been extremely exciting, as we decided at the last minute to put together something we have thought about doing for a long time: a televised Christmas special! With all of the live events that have been cancelled in 2020, we thought that this would be a perfect time to spread cheer, celebrate the birth of Jesus, tell stories, and make music for you to enjoy in the comfort of your homes!

This project started with finding a location, and our good friends Paul and Barb Truesdell were gracious enough to let us film the special in their beautiful home! One of our favorite young musicians and RiseFest artists, Cade Thompson, agreed to be in the show and play some songs we love, and Pastor Adam Weber from Sioux Falls also joined us to tell some stories and talk about what Christmas is really about! Rob's wife, Sharla, even read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to a group of kids that were able to be with us!

"Christmas with RISE and Friends" will air on KDLT, along with our social media pages, on Christmas Eve at 10:35 p.m.! We are so excited to share this project with you, celebrate the birth of Christ, and spend time together in joy!
