Our vision is to invite misfits to experience new life by becoming a new people rooted in Jesus, who passionately love God and purposefully seek the renewal of our city. Together, we explore what it means to be a new people with a new passion and new purpose. This happens both as individuals and as a community! No matter where you are on your faith journey, we invite you to join us as our guest.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON SUNDAYS
Join us for our worship gathering every Sunday from 10 am-11:00 am at Central Lutheran School (detailed directions and parking info).
Each Sunday gathering includes time to worship in song, hear teaching from the Bible, and share communion (gluten-free available) or hear a story from the life of a Roots member. We also have time to meet new friends and catch up with old friends while hanging out over coffee/hot chocolate/tea and snacks. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Bring anyone you’d like to! Most folks describe our gatherings as welcoming and informal. We would like you to feel at ease as we worship and learn about God together.
We love kids and babies! A nursery and kids ministry are available on Sundays. Learn more about Roots’ nursery and kids ministry.
In addition to English, you may hear Hmong and Spanish at our gatherings. Interpretation of the sermon to Spanish is usually available. When you arrive, just let the greeter know you would like interpretation. Ofrecemos interpretación en espanol. Si deseas un intérprete, avísale a la persona que da la bienvenida. Contact us to arrange interpretation at Roots events throughout the week.
Our space is handicap-accessible.
We love to eat together, serve our neighborhood, play games, and hang out. You can find us at Taylor’s Falls, Hmong New Year, Como Lake, and the restaurants of Frogtown and Hamline-Midway.
We strive to live out our identity as a new people with a new passion and new purpose in Jesus. We would like to grow in relational width (serving our neighbors and making new friends) and depth (building relationships of trust with each other and God).
To get involved, check out:

If you’d like to learn more about the Roots community or talk with someone one-on-one, it’ll be our pleasure to meet with you. Contact us or connect with one of our leaders to meet after the gathering or during the week.
ONE FAMILY, MANY CULTURES
We love the multicultural, multiethnic, multi-everything nature of God’s kingdom, and we celebrate it in our community! We’re excited about the opportunity to develop friendships across cultures and backgrounds. Ultimately, we’re growing deeper in a common identity as followers of Jesus Christ.
