Serving at Good Roots.

TELL : SERVE : RECONCILE : MULTIPLY


Mission: We endeavor to be part of Christ’s mission to His church, continually seeking out, making, and baptizing disciples. As individuals, families, and church community we are all part of the same journey, growing and maturing as God prunes and nurtures us into the likeness of His Son. Though broken and oftentimes failing, we are confident in God’s grace and at all times seek to share the Gospel with those who do not believe, identifying with them in friendship, loving them in their brokenness and leading them towards a redemptive life with God. Salvation is based on sacrifice. We recognize the costly and oftentimes-painful nature of what God calls us to whether eating with the rich or helping the orphans, widows and aliens. It is impossible to avoid suffering and sacrifice if we want to be more like Jesus, to live a life more abundant, restore our identity within the image of God and live Kingdom lives within a broken, sin-scarred world.

Good Roots Kids

Volunteers in GRC Kids minister to our 0-7 year olds during weekend worship services through singing, telling stories and teaching the truth of God's Word with the children. They serve in the nursery, check in kids, lead classrooms, and provide assistance to classroom teachers.


We're always looking for great individuals to love and serve our kids, and help show the love of Christ to them during our gatherings. If you're someone who would like to serve, or just know a little bit more about GRC Kids, please connect with us.
