Rooted Middle School Ministry

Rooted exists so that students and families can encounter Jesus, build a Christ-centered foundation, connect with others, and to understand that they are an important member of the body of Christ.


Students are being pulled in a dozen different directions all school year long. Truth can become blurry and pressures can really begin to weigh in. Camps and Retreats can afford students the opportunity to step away from the distractions to think clearly and experience Christ in a fresh way. Jesus sets for us this example, as He would often retreat to desolate and quiet places to seek the Father and pray (Mk 1:35). If we have one hour of quality investment time with your child each week at Rooted (say roughly 50 hours a year), we will nearly match that time together in just the few days we spend away. Winter camp is a high concentration of community, discipleship and fun!

Come join us at the 11AM service in the Hayford Prayer Chapel. We also have a combined Middle/High school Spanish service at 1PM! Come check it out!

A Wednesday youth group service with worship and a Bible teaching happens every week at 7PM! We have some things in the works for an incredible Fall/Winter (including Winter Camp @ Camp Cedar Crest). Feel free to email the youth pastors for more details.

Students can expect to learn what God's Word says and apply it to their lives while enjoying fun activities and engaging conversations in their small groups! Students can also expect times of worship and opportunities not just for them to be ministered to but, to minister to each other! We love to see our young people empowered to operate in God’s purpose for them! Come and join us!
