Groups

Rooted

Rooted is a life-building small group experience that goes beyond Bible study or the usual small group format of study, fellowship, and prayer.  Rooted helps those who are new to the Christian faith, or reconnecting to it again, understand what it means to follow Jesus through seven rhythms:  
  1. Daily Devotion
  2. Prayer
  3. Repentance
  4. Sacrificial Generosity
  5. Serving
  6. Sharing our Stories
  7. Worship

During the 10 weeks that your Rooted group meets, you will share in experiences such as prayer and serving the community to enhance your understanding of discipleship.

If you are interested in participating in the next group, please contact Rev. Anne Havrilla.

Ascend Small Groups

Ascend is a practice for those growing to be more like Jesus. Using the rhythms of daily prayer and weekly conversation with others, Ascend invites us to reflect on how we are growing in three areas: gratitude, surrender, and calling.

Our next read, beginning November 14 is ROOTED: The Hidden Places Where God Develops You by Banning Liebscher. 
“Finding your identity in Christ is so important in today’s world.  ROOTED gives you the fundamental skills to guide you into being fully grounded and established in Christ, producing fruit that lasts. "  - Luke Ridnour (NBA veteran)

“In every generation a heart comes along that beats so loudly for God, the sound is heard around the world.  Banning Liebscher possesses this kind of heart- a heart whose soil continues to be tilled, watered, tended, and tested by fire—producing lasting fruit that nourishes the nations.” - Christa Black Gifford, (speaker, songwriter and author)
We encourage and welcome you to join us!
