New City is partnered with Mission Avenue Elementary. This partnership is carrying out the restorative work of the gospel in our city, and is an outward expression of who we are as a church. We are committed to providing support to our students, our teachers and our families this school year.

New Rooted Groups launching! | February 10

rooted.jpg

Rooted is a 10 week experience that redefines how we live life and view our relationship with God and others, giving context to what it means to be part of something bigger! As you make the commitment to be part of Rooted, you will begin to see God in new ways, allowing you to experience life through community, authenticity and generosity.

Rooted is an interactive experience, which will be facilitated in the context of groups. In the
course of 10 weeks, you will get together weekly with a group to talk about what God has been
revealing to you as you go through the week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer. You will
also learn from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage and guide each
member of your group.

Your group will share three experiences together outside of your group time: prayer, serving and
sharing your story. During the last session, all groups will join together to celebrate how God is
working!


Sunday, February 10th • Rooted Kickoff • 5pm at New City
Between these gatherings, Rooted Groups will meet weekly

on the designated day and time.

Sunday, April 28th • Rooted Celebration • 6:30pm at New City
