Rooted is coming this Fall!


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

Need a break? Been a while since you had a date night? Drop your kids off at New City and enjoy some time for yourself.

Your child(ren) will have a fun night with their friends painting, eating pizza (a gluten free option will also be available), and playing games! We will be using water based paints and will have smocks to help keep paint off your child's clothes, but you probably still don't want to dress them in anything you aren't willing to get some paint on just in case.

You'll also be supporting our students as all proceeds go to send our middle and high school students to Move and Mix this summer. Cost is $10/child to be paid the night of the event.

if: gathering | march 9-10

IF: ALBUQUERQUE is a 2-day gathering of local women asking what IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? This year IF: ALBUQUERQUE is hosted at North Church (4700 San Mateo Blvd NE) on March 9 @6:30pm and March 10 @9am. At IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired. We all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees.
