Rooted Worship


Rooted is the contemporary worshipping community of Arborlawn UMC where all are welcome as beloved children of God. Rooted in that identity, we are growing together as disciples in authentic community and actively branching out to love Fort Worth.


We worship together on Sundays and share life together in smaller groups because we believe life is better in open and real community.


We serve and include the Fort Worth community because we believe people who are loved by God love others like God.


Rooted offers energetic contemporary (or modern) worship led by our talented worship leader, Jackson Christenberry, and band. During worship, you will hear a scripturally informed sermon encouraging you to live a fuller life. We celebrate Holy Communion each and every week and it is always open to all.


We place special emphasis on being an open and real worshipping community. We want you to be welcomed amongst us as we believe God welcomes you. We want you to worship God feeling free to express yourself in a true and honest way. This means coming dressed as you are, whether that means wearing jeans and a t-shirt or your favorite dress or suit.


Rooted meets in the Worship Center located on the second floor of the church at 11:11 am. If you enter from the east side of campus, simply walk down the hallway until you find the smiling, friendly faces of our greeters next to the double doors. If you enter from the lower level on the west side of campus, take the stairs or elevator to the second floor. We are opposite the Sanctuary balcony. Again, look for the smiling, friendly faces welcoming you to worship.


Once you enter the Worship Center, grab a cup of coffee and a bite to eat from our refreshment table prepared for you in the back. Then you can strike up a conversation or grab a seat as you wait for worship to begin. We will be glad you came and we hope you will be, too.


The Lead Pastor for Rooted worship is Rev. Nick Scott. If you have questions or would like more information about Rooted worship, reach out to him at
