Roots is a group for guys and girls who are past high school from 18-28 years old. Led by Pastor Ross Tieszen (email, this ministry is designed to be a place for young professionals to foster relationships while also growing in faith. If you are 18-28 years old, Roots is for you - you need to come check us out on a Friday night, and bring a friend!

The Bible tells us to let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him (Colossians 2:7).  So our aim is to help every young professional do just that - grow deeper - grow roots. We'll hang out together and grow deeper as we learn how live for God in the normal day-to-day.  We'll regularly talk about the events of the day (over an expresso!) and what the Bible has to say about those things. 

And we'll grow deeper - in friendships. You'll connect with good friends who are going through some of the same challenges that you are.  As we get together every week in the Roots Living Room & Cafe, there will be ongoing opportunities to build some great relationships. 

If we tweeted what we're all about - it'd be something like this:

Every Roots event & hangout is meant to help you love God & love others more #YouBelong #FridaysAt7 #JourneyNHRoots

Roots meets every Thursday night at 7pm in the Roots Living Room & Cafe (2nd floor south, Barrington campus, 7 miles from UNH).
