As an interdenominational church community located in Thundery Bay, ON, Grassroots finds itself captivated by an ancient Jewish calling:
The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11.9)
We believe that this job is not yet done. The world is not yet covered in Jesus’s selfless love.
As explorers of a True Way, Grassrooters cover the earth with the selfless love of Jesus.
Grassrooters want to help people from all walks of life find their faith restored in God.
Shaping Bright Disciples
Grassrooters want to shape disciples of Jesus who are both inspirational and learned. We love watching people spread hope and love to those around them, and we want to think deeply through why we believe what we believe. At Grassroots, there is no checking your brain at the door. Hard questions are welcome and those deconstructing or reconstructing their faith are honoured and cared for here.
Sheltering the Vulnerable
Third, Grassrooters want to be the type of people–both as individuals and as a community–who shelter vulnerable people.
