Rooted in Hope–Young Adult Weekend

Please join us Friday, December 16 - Sunday, December 18 for a time of discipleship led by Jarrett Richardson. This weekend is designed similarly to Disciple Now; where there will be a time of discipleship, a service project, some fun time, and small group time. The cost is $30 to cover your T-shirt and food.

 Jarrett Richardson has been the student pastor at Heritage Park Baptist Church in Webster, Texas since the summer of 2020. God called him to ministry in 2015 in Kansas City, Kansas. After training for ministry at Oklahoma Baptist University and Midwestern Seminary, Jarrett’s heart is aimed towards helping students and young adults learn how to own their own faith and to seeing lives transformed by the gospel! Three of his favorite things: Kansas City BBQ, traveling, and a quality cup of coffee. 

Registration ends December 2.

Rooted Young Adults
You Were Created on Purpose and for a Purpose.
 You will find a home here if:

  • You aren’t perfect but are trying to figure out this journey called life 
  • You want to discover a deeper purpose for your life 
  • You are seeking hope in the midst of a broken world 
  • You want to make new friends 
  • You are open to hearing from the God who sees you, knows you, and loves you 
  • You are open to becoming firmly rooted in the Word of God in order to withstand the storms of life  

Our firm conviction, compelled by the Scriptures, is that regardless of where you have been or what you have done, God wants to meet with you. God is, even as you read this, inviting you into more than what you are currently experiencing in life. Would you please allow us the honor of partnering with you in this journey? We certainly don’t have all the answers, but we are following a God in Jesus Christ who does.  

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, who created you on purpose and for a purpose. Our heartbeat is to see young adults from all walks of life find purpose, joy, and hope in the presence of Jesus Christ. 

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7  

Corporate Worship Times

8:45 am & 11:15 am

Why attend corporate worship? 
If a storm rolls through a forest, and a single tree is out in the open, that tree will almost certainly fall. If a storm rolls through a forest densely populated with trees, the trees will lean on one another in order to withstand the storm. The same is true for the Christian life. We are stronger together. We are better together. We are far more likely to survive the storms of life when we are regularly surrounded by people who know us and care about us. Regardless of your experience in church, even if you’ve never set foot in a church building before, you are welcome here. You will be welcomed with open arms into our family, no matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you come from.

Sunday School

College & Career (ages 18-22)
10:00 am in Room 350
Director: Steve Johnson

Cultivate (ages 22-30)
10:00 am in Room 360
Directors: Austin & Sarah Ruth Arden

Why attend Sunday School? 
Often, young people are encouraged with simple platitudes such as, God loves you, and, God is good. While both are unequivocally true statements, what happens when life gets hard and God no longer feels good? What happens when life gets hard, and it no longer feels like God loves you? What do you do? Our conviction is that unless you are deeply *rooted* in the Word of God and an understanding of who he is, you will not withstand the storms of life. Our desire for Sunday School is to equip young people to be able to withstand even the toughest seasons of life. Our desire is for young men and women to develop a transformative understanding of Jesus Christ.
