Roots on Sunday Mornings & The Grove on Wednesday Nights

6th-12th graders are invited to go deeper in Scripture, to practice spiritual disciplines to mature in their relationship with God, and to connect with their friends during the school year. Friends are always welcome! 

Roots Sundays from 9-10AM in the MPAC. All 6th-12th graders come together for a big group teaching time and then join their Roots small groups led by our adult Roots Guides. Groups are divided by gender and grade.
