Each week we gather together to devote ourselves to the teaching of the scriptures and for prayer. Week in and out we remember what is so easy to forget: that God is with us, Jesus is Lord, and God has called his people to join him in changing the world.
Sunday mornings therefore are about the people of God embracing and being embraced by God together. It is about setting aside time to be part of a web of faith. It is about hearing the Great Story told over again and it helping us, just a bit more, be able to find our place as actors in God’s drama. It is about being healed by God’s embrace and then being prepared to heal the world around us as we receive forgiveness and love. It is about everyone being challenged to align our lives with God’s heart.
All of these things are part of a Sunday morning experience where our faith is strengthened, our discipleship deepened, and God’s heart to shelter vulnerable people spread among those that have showed up.
A normal service begins with a couple of songs, then a time of offering to support ministry at Grassroots, a couple more songs, a message from the scriptures, a time of communion, and a final song.
Every Sunday morning during the fourth worship song, children are guided to their own spaces to join in the Roots & Shoots program. Our leaders and assistants provide age-appropriate activities designed to help the kids focus on Jesus and get to know Him through study, prayer, and reflection. For Kindergarten, Gr 1-3, and Gr 4-6 students we offer this structured environment with stimulating lessons that encourage questions and spiritual growth. The children are encouraged to reflect, listen to what God wants to say to them, and experience God’s grace on a personal and community level.
The nursery and pre-school rooms offer a safe, welcoming space for children ages 0 – 3 years old. Each space is full of toys and books meant to engage the children.

Everybody is welcome to take part in communion. After the service ends all are invited, if they wish, to linger and chat.
And that’s it, really. Come back next week for more!
Once every month, after Sunday worship, Grassroots hosts a meal for people who want to know more about the church, the vision, the people, and how to get engaged. If you are new to Grassroots, if you have yet to find a role, or if you have taken a breather, this session will help you get to know Pastor Keith, hear the Grassroots story, find out what’s new, and learn how to plug in to the community.
People who have been attending Grassroots for any length of time and want to get more plugged in are encouraged to attend. The session runs from noon to 1:30, lunch is provided, and children are welcome.
