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


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.



NOTHING ELSE IN THE ARK


Speak to me: “There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets that Moses had placed in it at Horeb, where the Lord made a covenant with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt.”

‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭5:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬


Action: Once You make a covenant, there’s nothing more that is needed. Your Word is enough.


Learn: When Solomon brought the ark of the covenant to the temple, all that was in the ark was the two stone tablets that Moses placed in it. It was significant because that’s when You made a covenant with the Israelites after the were freed from Egypt.


Talk with God: Lord, there are things You have spoken to me and promises made. There is nothing more that needs to be added to Your Word to me. Your Word is enough. Help me to listen to Your Word and stand on everything You have said.

“I LOVE YOU JESUS. AMEN!”

    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.

    Whisper

    FriDAYS

    8:30 - 10:00 am

    ZOOM MEETING

    Many people have a tough time believing in God still speaks. We’ve learned from Scripture that God spoke to His people in ancient times and in mysterious ways, but how do we hear His voice now? The truth is God still communicates with His people, but He often speaks in a whisper—not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.


    In this 4-session series, Mark Batterson teaches what it means for Christians to discern the voice of God in their lives. He will introduce the seven love languages of God—each of them unique and entirely divine. By learning to tune in and decipher each language, Mark equips believers to hear God’s guidance and grow closer to Him.


    God is speaking. Do you know how to listen?

    God wants us to flourish. In fact, he delights in our flourishing. Life isn’t always fun, but in Christ it can always be fruitful.


    In Chasing Vines, Beth shows us from Scripture how all of life’s concerns—the delights and the trials—matter to God. He uses all of it to help us flourish and be fruitful. Nothing is for nothing. Looking through the lens of Christ’s transforming teaching on the vine and branches in John 15, Beth gives us a panoramic view of biblical teachings on the vine, vineyards, vine dressing, and fruitfulness.


    Join Beth on a journey of vine chasing all over the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, to discover why fruitfulness is so important to God—and how He can use anything that happens to us for His glory and for our flourishing.


    Your life matters, and it can be immensely fruitful.

    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.
