2. ROOTS: How can I become a member?

Roots is all about discovering the purpose and vision of the Church. You’ll learn why God created the Church and New Song’s specific strategies to reach our community. At the end of this class, you are able to apply for membership. Roots is now a live class, taught by Lead Pastor Hal Seed. Find the next Roots class on our events page.
