Rooted is an exciting, vibrant ministry of Brookside made up of students grades 7th through 12th. Rooted is dedicated to the spiritual growth of teenagers with the purpose of making disciples. Our motto is “Love God, Love Others” (Matthew 22:37-39) and sets the foundation for our part in the Brookside mission. In carrying out this motto, it is our desire to "Love God” through our:
Devotion to Him
Dependence on Him
Delight in Him
Additionally, we strive to “Love Others” by:
Serving one another
Suffering with one another
Sharing with one another
Rooted meets weekly for Bible study, fellowship and service on Wednesday nights from 6:45-8:00pm in Room 17.
Our yearly calendar is filled with fun activities, service opportunities and Bible centered events. For those in grades 9th-12th we have an missions program called SMiTE (Student Missionaries in Training for Evangelism) that is intentionally structured for the Spiritual growth of the student. The program concludes with a mission trip in the summer. Additionally, we have opportunities for the teens to attend a week of summer Bible camp.
