Growing Roots

Grades 2 – 5

Dear Parent:

You are reading this page because your child has expressed an interest in a small discipleship group called ROOTS. This group is designed for children who have a desire to explore the Bible deeper than we can on Sunday mornings. Please read on for information about the vision and structure of this group.

In developing the ROOTS program, Pastor Barry realized that there were two defining moments in his walk with God. The first was accepting Jesus as his savior. The second, was falling in love with the Bible and realizing that it had something significant to say about every part of life. This is the heart behind ROOTS. A passion for the word of God drives us to help children discover the incredible miracle of the Bible.

ROOTS is a small, relational environment for children in grades 2-5 that is all about the Bible. There won't be any fancy program. We will gather every Wednesday after school to build relationships, and work our way through two books of the Bible. This year we will look at Proverbs in the fall and Mark in the winter. We will also tackle 6 theological topics that will help build your child's spiritual foundation. (See below for the schedule.)

Each week ROOTS kids are required to read the assigned Bible passages with a parent (3-4 chapters). In the fall, ROOTS kids join the Club House ministry team, choosing how they'd like to serve twice a month. In the winter semester we take part in a community service project. Once a month supper is provided and we eat together during the session. We'll also plan a hang out time at the end of each semester.


Every Wednesday night 3:30 to 5:00pm.
