Rooted and Growing is an opportunity to grow in our relationship with Jesus. It can happen anytime or anywhere. On this page you'll find some of the opportunities that we have for you to connect with people for various reasons and grow through relationship while studying the bible. We will also provide links to various videos for those times when you are not able to connect with someone but want to know more. Come back and keep checking this page for more growth opportunities.


If you have any questions or would like to speak with someone please contact Pastor Marsha Krieger.

Below you will find Video Links where we will continually attach video links for you to view anytime, anywhere to help you grow.

We will also have "Growth Opportunities" that include bible studies, and small groups that apply to you.

Today's Devotion

Lord, I do want to have the same attitude of mind and one voice as other believers so that I glorify You. Thank You for giving me endurance and encouragement daily. Without Your endurance and encouragement, all that I do would be based on my own strength, which gets me nowhere.
“I LOVE YOU JESUS. AMEN!”

We want to help you as you learn to journal and do devotions.  In this section we will provide a sample of one of Pastor Sheldon's devotions. We hope you will learn from what he is learning as well as learn to journal on your own! Please be aware that as Pastor Sheldon writes his devotions, he addresses them to God.  We want to stay true to what he writes in his journal so you will notice that "You" is in capital letters when he is speaking to God in his devotions.



WORSHIP IN A WAY THAT’S WORTHY


Speak to me: 'Ascribe to the Lord , all you families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts. '  Psalms 96:7-8


Action: If worship is a lifestyle, then I need to live in such a way that is worthy unto You.


Learn: To ascribe means “To attribute something to.” To give You strength and glory seems like I can only accomplish half of that. I can give You glory, but to give You strength, I’m not sure how I can give You strength. You’re the One who gives me strength. To ascribe glory that is due Your name is tough to do, because I will always come up short. I can however bring an offering to You and come into Your presence.


Talk with God:  Heavenly Father, there is no way I can accomplish what You’re asking of me when it comes to worshipping You in a way that You deserve…in a way that is due Your name. I will always come up short. But that’s only if it’s based on performance. The way to worship You in a way that’s worthy, is to do everything with all of my heart…that, I can do. Help me today to worship You with all of my heart in all I do that brings the glory that is due Your name.

“I LOVE YOU LORD. AMEN!”

  • ONLINE WOMENS Bible study

    SATURDAY August 29-November 14

    7:30 - 9:30 AM

    ONLINE MEETING

    Through this 12-week digital bible study we will learn how we can develop integrity as believers. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures—to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers face many of the same trials. This study examines how believers can develop and live with integrity in todays culture, and then explores prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Christ.

  • ONLINE WOMENS BIBLE STUDY

    Friday AUGUST 28-September 25

    4:30 - 5:30 PM

    ONLINE MEETING

    That tiny two-letter word…

    ..is the hinge on the door of possibilities. Some of us are stuck in if only, living lives marked by regret. But God can turn your if only regrets into a what if attitude, a faith that looks forward to the future with holy confidence. There are 1,784 ifs in the Bible. The most significant? “If God is for us, who can be against us?” It’s the game changer! God is always on our side – every day, in every way.

  • ONLINE Single WOMENS SMALL GROUP GATHERING

    Embraced

    Tuesdays & saturdays

    10:00 - 11:00 aM

    ONLINE MEETING

    God doesn’t pull back from your sharp edges. He pulls you close.


    The best kind of embrace is when someone who deeply loves us flings their arms wide open and pulls us close. Our hearts were made for this kind of love and security but many of us know more about the pain of heartbreak and fear.


    In Embraced, Lysa shares her own struggles and doubts while pointing to the Ultimate Embrace: Jesus opening His arms wide on Calvary so that He could pull us close for eternity. And because we have been fully embraced by Him, we can spend our lives trusting His ways.

    When our goals, dreams, and desires sync up with Gods plan for us, we know that those dreams, goals and desires will be sure to come to pass.  The scriptures promise this.  Watch as Jonathan Miyasato, as he takes us through story of Esther, to show us how Mordecai, Esther and the Jewish people had to rely and trust in God's timing.
