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.

As always, reading the bible for yourself and doing devotions is one of the best ways to grow in your relationship with God. Learn what devotions are or how to do them here.

    How's your Soul

    Thursday's January 13 - March 17, 2022

    4:00 PM-5:00 PM

    In the rush of living moment to moment, many of us find ourselves simply surviving, struggling daily with frustration, restlessness, boredom, and ever-fleeting joy. But if we would pause, we’d find that the things that matter most in life, what we are searching for in our busyness—stability, peace, hope, love—are rooted in the health of what Judah calls the “inside you.” 

    In How’s Your Soul?, Judah explores that “inside you.” Sharing his own, often humorous, mistakes and foibles, he helps us find our way through the emotional roller coasters of life to discover the soul-healing essentials of rest, responsibility, restraint, and relationships, all rooted in what he calls the soul’s only true home—God himself.

    How’s Your Soul? is an invitation to find lasting emotional satisfaction and stability by bringing our feelings into alignment with God’s truth, moving beyond simply surviving, and learning how to live each day with eternal significance.

    In order to get the most from this small group, please purchase the book and study guide.
