Quizzing is a unique and exciting ministry for youth that combines Bible study, mentoring, competition, fellowship, discipleship, and mission. In addition to developing a devotion to God’s Word and lifelong habits of Bible study in youth, quizzing creates and builds up a community of young disciples and servants, steadily adding to a vast pool of leadership and continually strengthening the church and its ministries.
Rooted Student Ministries is dedicated to reaching the youth of the Othello community. We aim to do this by meeting Wednesdays for our youth group discipleship and by facilitating outreach events from in and outside the church building from all nighters at the church to laser tag and BBQ's. We also participate in many of the Church of the Nazarene's district events including The Gathering, Riverview Bible Camp, Breakthrough, and more.
Our mission is to love God and others, grow our faith in Christ, and serve others to build up our community and the Kingdom of God.
Our vision is to create a place for teens to come and hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, have a safe place to build authentic relationships, develop a heart of service in the lives of our leaders and our students, and develop a faith that grows beyond high school years.
For any questions regarding the youth ministry or for information about volunteering please contact the church office or call Derek Wagner (509) 346-8311.
Adult Discipleship groups take place on Sunday morning at church and throughout the week in homes or at church. A ladies' group meets on Sundays. Other groups meet throughout the week including a group of “Golden Girls” ladies, several home study groups, prayer groups and a dinner fellowship group. A men's group exists to enable, empower and encourage men to met their neighbors.
Sunday mornings our babies and toddlers are loved and cared for during worship and praise. Thanks to all our nursery workers who help with children Sunday mornings and during special events.
Sunday mornings kids are provided with clipboards with kids' bulletins for use during the worship service. Parents may also allow children to attend 'KIDS CHURCH' where they hear a lesson geared to their age level. On Wednesdays we have classes just for kids to learn more about Jesus.
It's important to help children know what the Bible says and help them demonstrate biblical teachings in actual life situations. The goal of Children's Quizzing is for children [grades 1 - 6] to know the God of the Bible. Throughout the school year they participate in study groups and fun quizzes and, occasionally, travel to other churches to quiz with other kids.
