ROOTED

Connect with God, the Church and your Purpose

Register

our dream

Whether you’ve been a Christian for a long time or are new to faith in Christ, Rooted has the potential to have a bigger impact on your spiritual growth than anything else you do this year.

What can I Expect?

10-weeks | Life-Changing Experiences | Insightful Readings | Enlightening Conversations

Mark Twain famously said, “the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” 

Without exception, those days come and go for every person. But at some point in our lives most of us want to find deep connections with God, others and our purpose. Rooted can help you do that. This experience seeks to connect you with others who are figuring out their purpose. This is done in a relational way that helps you build relationships as you pursue the life God has for you. 

This 10-week experience costs $25 per person and includes childcare. Limited partial scholarships are available.

Our next Rooted session kicks off September 16, 4-6pm

Life Groups are where we give and receive help to follow Jesus as a Family of Disciples on Mission.

our dream

Equipping people to live as a Family of Disciples on Mission.

What can I Expect?

Our Life Groups typically consist of 5-15 people who meet regularly, in the community.

Life change happens best in the context of community. As Fearless Followers, we desire to live differently—we call it “fearlessly”. To do that, we need to work together, encouraging each other and supporting each other. This is where Life Groups become tremendously helpful. 

If you’re looking for a circle of friends, an opportunity to grow spiritually and to intentionally engage your social circles, check out our Life Groups.

Get involved

Here are some ways to take some next steps.

There are a few ways to get involved in a Life Group. The primary way we form Life Groups is through Rooted. If you’ve been through Rooted, we can connect you to Life Groups in a couple of different ways. You can contact our office to see what groups are available or you can check out our Term Groups where Life Groups can be formed based on shared experiences or stages of life. 

If you’re interested in forming a Life Group with people you know and need a little help, reach out. We’d love to help figure that out.

Missional Living

City, Region and World.

our dream

We long to reach people with the hope and love of Jesus and to restore what’s broken in our city, region, and world.

What can I Expect?

In our missional activities we work with local, regional and global partners to reach people with the hope and love of Jesus and to restore what’s broken.

Locally we create bridge events where people from our community can interact with our church in a friendly, easy way. We do this with Trunk or Treat, Egg Hunts and the Daddy Daughter Dance. We also engage in local projects to help our city be a welcoming place for everyone. 

Regionally and globally we work with many partners to reach people through church planting, pastoral training, child sponsorships and missions trips. We work to restore what’s broken through foster care and adoption, mentoring, recovery programs and life-skills training. 

There’s plenty of opportunity for every follower of Jesus to engage missionally, whether you’re interested in serving in our city, region or world.
