The Root

Sundays @ 9:30 A.M., PIRO HALL
with Lauren Gerlach, Associate Teaching Pastor

What is The Root? The Root is a new name for the Adult Teaching Ministry at 9:30 before 11:00 worship. The class & sermon in worship complement each other. You are invited to join our 'The Root' faith family & grow with us. 

What can I expect? Each Sunday, we dive beneath the surface of the scripture of our current worship series preached in worship that weekend. We always have a time of community fellowship (i.e. coffee, breakfast tacos, or donuts!) before the class lesson.

Our Mission: To nourish what matters most. We Believe that the Word of God is essential to the formation & shaping of our Christian lives. In the New Testament Letter to the Colossians, a resounding call to endurance & growth sounds like this... 

"As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and establish in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving."  Colossians 2:6-7

Who is a part of The Root? Pastor Lauren Gerlach leads this community of adults. All are welcome! Have kiddos? Sunday morning Children's programming, confirmation class, and youth ministry all run concurrent to our class time. 

Where is Piro Hall? Piro is by the East doors of the Sanctuary (down the hall past the parlor) & down the stairs! Once you arrive downstairs, you'll find the many windows with a gorgeous view of our woodsy campus & the stream that trickles through it.

What if I can't make it every Sunday? Each class stands alone. Out of town for a weekend, traveling, or at a sports tournament? Don't sweat it. Follow along with us on Podcast, YouTube, or Instagram in the meantime. Join us regularly or when you can.
