Adult Ministry

Growing Deeper in Faith and Building Relationships

Adult Ministries at Remembrance Church seeks to encourage men and women to fix their eyes on Jesus as they take steps to grow deeper in their faith and build relationships with others.

Becoming a fully-devoted follower of Jesus is a journey, not a destination. It is a lifelong process where God transforms us to be more like Jesus: making disciples who make disciples. At Remembrance Church, we desire to come alongside individuals wherever they are on their faith journey, and invite them to take the next step in spiritual growth by getting connected into one of the areas of Adult Ministries.

Rooted is a 10-week small group experience designed to connect you to God, the church, and your purpose. Together, in a group of 10-15 people, you’ll explore the Bible, engage in prayer and serve experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. Whether you have been following Jesus for years, or you are new to the faith, Rooted is for you!

Rooted is available 2 times a year, with start dates in January and in September.

Please contact Betsy at miedema@remembrancechurch.org if you need more clarification or have other questions.

FAQ's

Rooted is a 10-week discipleship program and a catalyst for life-change. It provokes questions, provides conversations, and offers group experiences designed to give you a glimpse of your story in God’s story.

Rooted is typically offered in the Fall (beginning in September) and Winter (beginning in January) on Sunday evenings from 6-8pm.

Yes. Rooted costs $15 per person or $25 per couple. This cost includes all sessions, materials and childcare. Scholarships are available upon request.

  • Yes. Free, on-site childcare is available at no extra cost to those who pre-register.

When registration is open for a Rooted session, you may register by clicking on “Calendar”, and then “Events” on the Remembrance homepage.

If you miss Week One, your leader will be in contact with you and you can still join your group. For the best Rooted experience, we recommend not missing more than 2 weeks. If your schedule requires you to miss more than two, feel free to sign-up when the next Rooted session starts instead.

The Rooted team prayerfully reviews every registration and places participants in groups of approximately 10-15 people. We typically group people according to age, gender, marital status, and life stage. These groups ultimately depend upon the demographic of those who registered. We want you to have the best Rooted experience, so we will do our best to place you according to your requests.

We understand that Rooted is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth it to invest in the entire process. If you know you are going to miss more than 2 meetings, we ask that you wait until the next session of Rooted. The 10 weeks are a cumulative experience, so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other with being at every meeting.

Rooted books are handed out when you come to the first meeting.

All of our Rooted groups meet in different rooms in the church building.

Groups

Small Groups

Small Groups meet at various times and locations throughout the week and study a variety of different topics. They are a primary way for men, women, and couples to connect with one another. While small groups are formed in a variety of ways, we recommend starting with Rooted because most small groups form out of their Rooted group.

Discipleship Triads/Quads

Discipleship Triads/Quads provide the opportunity for significant spiritual growth and authentic connection with others. Triads/Quads are groups of 3-4 people of the same gender, who are on a journey of maturing in Christ as well as learning to disciple others. They meet for approximately 90 minutes on a weekly basis for personal sharing, studying Scripture, and praying together.

FAQ's

A Discipleship Triad/Quad is a group of 3-4 people on a journey of maturing in Christ, as well as learning to disciple others.

We have been called to make disciples! Disciple-making is fundamentally a relational process of lives sharpening lives. The intentionality of regularly meeting in a Discipleship Triad/Quad shifts our priorities by making this a centerpiece of our week, and teaches us how to grow as disciples and to make disciples.

You may join a Triad/Quad at any time! You may form a group on your own with people you already know or that you would like to know better, or contact Betsy Miedema at miedema@remembrancechurch.org for help in getting placed with a group.

Pursue those of the same gender who seem to have an openness to explore all they can be in Christ, regardless of their level of maturity. As a general rule of thumb, a variety of ages and years of experience in Christ only adds to the richness of the group. Gender-specific groups foster transparency.

We ask that your Triad/Quad forms a group covenant to meet weekly around a discipleship material. Your time together should be spent reading Scripture, sharing life together, and praying for one another; all while growing in transparency as you apply God’s Word honestly to your life.

We recommend meeting weekly for 90 minutes at a time convenient to the group members. Approximately 30 minutes of time is devoted to personal sharing, while the remaining time is used to cover the Bible content (this also usually leads back to personal application) and a time of prayer.

Find a place where there is freedom to be transparent about your life (quiet nook of a restaurant, private home, church, etc.). Rooms at church are made available upon request.
