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.


Speak to me: But you are to hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have until now. (‭Joshua‬ ‭23‬:‭8‬ NIV)

Action: You’re my Rock, Fortress, Shield, and Strength. I must continue to hold fast to You as I have been till now.

Learn: Joshua is towards the ending of his life, so he’s giving the people the best of the best advice he can muster up. He knows holding fast to You is what separates successful people and unsuccessful people. It’s a way of life, not a daily option, like what clothes I’m going to wear for the day. Holding fast to You is my life. It’s everything about who I am.

Hold fast: (Hebrew word: dabaq) to cling, stick, stay close, cleave, keep close, stick to, stick with, follow closely, join to, overtake, catch.

Talk with God: Lord help me today to hold fast to You, not only as I have been doing until now, but all the more as I grow in my relationship with You.

    I would like to thank you for your continued understanding as we do our very best to honor God, our community, and our government officials regarding how many people can gather together as a church.  In this season we have chosen to comply with the guidelines from White House concerning the COVID-19 pandemic

    currently facing our nation and the world. Therefore, all 10+ small groups will pause meeting until March 31. We will keep you updated as we adjust!  We are so grateful that we still get to do church together in so many other ways, as we partner with God in bringing hope to our world!
