Connect with God, the church community, and your purpose in unexpected, life-changing ways.
The Rooted experience redefines how we live our lives and view our relationships with God and others, giving context to what it means to be a part of something bigger. You will begin to see God in new ways, allowing you to experience a different way of life: community, authenticity and generosity.
Spring Session Registration opens October 1st. Dates for Spring Session are February 10 - April 14. More details coming soon.
Rooted is an interactive experience. In the course of 10 weeks, you will get together weekly with your group to talk about what God has been revealing to you as you go through the week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer. You will also learn from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage, and guide each member. Your group will share two experiences together outside of your group time: prayer, and serving. After the last session, you’ll join together with other groups and celebrate how God is working to connect each of you with your passion, your purpose, and your community.

Walking Wounded Movie Night
This event is open to all, but is targeted towards war veterans - Those suffering from the unseen wounds of war. Moral injury may be the signature wound for this generation of veterans, and a possible critical factor in veteran suicide.
About the Film: ALMOST SUNRISE is a story of resilience and recovery. A feature-length documentary, the film follows two Iraq veterans, as they struggle with depression upon returning home from military service. Fearful of succumbing to the epidemic of veteran suicide, they both seek a lifeline and embark on a 2,700-mile walk across America as a way to confront their inner pain. The film captures an intimate portrait of two friends suffering from the unseen wounds of war as they discover an unlikely treatment: the restorative power of silence and meditation. A cinematic experience that juxtaposes the internal struggles of its characters against the wide-open spaces of America's heartland. ALMOST SUNRISE is also the first film to explore "moral injury:" the profound shame that many veterans feel when their experiences of war violate their moral beliefs, and a possible critical factor in veteran suicide.
