A virtual tour of Roots & Wings art gallery!

22 June

Roots & Wings expos are the highlight of each learning block! Last month’s theme was “Artistic Expression”, and the kids had an amazing time learning about different artists, discovering different forms of art, and expressing their own creativity through sculptures, paintings, drawings and more! All together, they created quite the art gallery that they had […]

A Year Of Celebrate Recovery

17 June

It’s been one year since the Celebrate Recovery group for men began at Roots & Wings. In those initial weeks, we had no idea the impact this program would end up having on a growing group of men, their wives and children, and on Roots & Wings’ ministry. Sometimes, only one or two men would […]
