Welcome to the Roots Up ministry! 


1st – 5th Graders meet during Gateway’s Sunday Service from 10:00am – 11:00am.  During the Roots Up service, kids explore the amazing Word of God.


Using the example of worshipers in the Bible, we explore together what it means to truly worship Godthrough games, stories, and other memorable activities.


“Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives… rooted… in Him”


Realizing that today’s children need a firm foundation on Jesus, Gateway’s Children’s Ministry guides elementary children to sinking their “roots” into the strength, grace, and truth God gives and growing up as a community from that same foundation.


Current Series:


Deep Blue - A Weekly Adventure through the Bible.


“In the depths of who I am I rejoice in God my savior.” LUKE 1:47


With Deep Blue, children will make Bible stories, Bible people, and Bible passages a part of their lives. They will also come to know the Bible as THEIR book and find ways to let the Bible speak to them today!


Deep Blue incorporates Bible stories, science activities, arts and crafts, animated video storytelling, and active games into a lived-faith experience that will help children discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ today!

The Deep Blue kids—Asia, Edgar, and Kat—will lead the children through the Bible using animated videos that tell the story. The student resources-the Bible Story Stuff, the Kids Activity Stuff, and the Deep Blue Kids Bible—are colorful and engaging, encouraging the children to “dive deeper” into the Bible and explore their faith in fun and age-appropriate ways.
