Roots is an intentionally multiethnic community of misfits on a mission, finding identity in Jesus. We consider ourselves “misfits” because many of us have felt like we didn’t fit in other settings—always too much or not enough. Many of us asked too many questions, or didn’t conform to cultural norms. When we look to the scriptures, however, we see Jesus taking misfits and forming them into a new people with a new passion and a new purpose. It’s in Jesus’s Kingdom where we belong; in following Jesus we find our most important identity.

Roots is a church community that gathers in the Hamline-Midway, Frogtown, and historic Rondo neighborhoods of St. Paul, MN. When we talk about “church,” we’re not talking about a building. Rather, we’re talking about a people, a community that is seeking God, learning how to be guided by the Holy Spirit, and experiencing new life in Christ. We have been meeting since 2014. We would love for you to join us for a worship gathering or small group some time!

    Under God’s Wing

    Under God’s Wing

    In this sermon, Pastor T. C. explores the episode in Jesus’s story when he is warned that Herod wants to kill him but he is defiant, unflappable. But it’s what Jesus says next that has echoed through history. Jesus weeps over Jerusalem and longs to gather its children to himself like a mother hen.

    Missions

    Missions

    In this sermon, Pastor T. C. explores the problematic concept of “missions” and reframes it as God’s dream for the world to restore Shalom. God tells Israel to “seek the peace of the city” in Jeremiah 29—and that city was Babylon. What if the mission Jesus sends his disciples on was never about “conversion” but about declaring and demonstrating the Kingdom of God? What the mission Jesus sends his disciples on was always about sharing God’s peace?
