Roots & Shoots

One of our five year old members read a book about Jane Goodall and learned about the national youth service program she founded--Roots and Shoots.  Community Church is embracing the mission and vision of Roots and Shoots and is integrating the program and inter-generational community service and social engagement throughout the life of our  Church.  See details about our program below.
