Rooted Young Adults

Ages 18–25 | Year-Round

Rooted is our community for young adults and college students. We gather weekly on Tuesdays to help each other grow in our relationships with God, each other and the church family. Find your identity centered in Christ, pursue God-given dreams and goals, have fun together and ultimately enjoy a deep support system during all the transitions of young adulthood.

Upcoming Events for Adults
Starting Point


In Starting Point classes, you can explore questions about God and Christianity. Discussion leaders walk the group through topics like beginning faith in Christ, prayer and reading the Bible. It’s a low-pressure environment and we don’t mind hard questions!

We offer believers’ baptism several times a year. While we don’t believe salvation depends on this, it’s a wonderful act of obedience to Jesus to make a public declaration of your faith.
