Rooted is an 11-week small group experience that is a catalyst for life change! Rooted groups gather each week, and, with a study guide and a facilitator, walk through Scripture and engage in discussion to discover God’s purpose for their lives. Rooted is such a life-changing experience that we want everyone to participate!
What Makes Rooted So Effective?
Through a highly experiential model, Rooted reinforces what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, built on 7 rhythms: essential practices like worship, generosity, service, evangelism, prayer and studying God’s Word. Rooted is not just about learning new information, but learning to live in the rhythms God has designed us for!
Rooted builds community quickly as you share your story, share experiences together, and get to experience God’s activity in the lives of those around you. Rooted builds community so effectively that most groups elect to stay together and continue on together as a Community Group once the 11 weeks of Rooted are finished.
The experiences that have the greatest impact are usually those that cost us something. Rooted is high demand in that it requires homework (5 daily devotions each week, that take 10-20 mins. each to complete), two additional experiences outside of your group times (a prayer and serve experience), a $25 registration fee, and a willingness to be stretched to step out of your comfort zone. Growth doesn’t happen without being stretched, and Rooted creates the opportunity for new and exciting growth!
Three to four weeks before the start of each Rooted session, an official registration link will be available here. Each person or couple needs to register individually and you will be able to select the group or groups you’re able to participate in.
Ready to get started?
The next session of Rooted will begin in April. Use the link to the right to let us know you’re interested and we’ll keep you posted when the next registration goes live.
WHO IS ROOTED FOR?
Rooted is for all adults, of all life stages, no matter how long you have been a Christ-follower. When you register, you will designate whether you would prefer a group of all men, women, or a mix of marrieds/singles. From there, our team will prayerfully place you into a group. If you have a request to be placed with a certain person, you can designate that on your registration.
WHAT IS THE COST FOR ROOTED ?
Rooted costs $25 per person, which includes all session, your workbook, all other materials, all experiences, and the Celebration Dinner. That comes out to about $2.25 per week for a life-changing experience! Need-based scholarships are available upon request. There may be an additional cost for childcare associated with some meeting times.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT GROUP I WILL BE IN ?
Based on your registration info and options you select, you will be assigned to a Rooted Group. You will meet your leader and other group members at the Kick-off Event.
CAN I REQUEST TO BE IN THE SAME GROUP AS SOMEONE ELSE ?
Yes, just indicate that on your registration.
DO I NEED MY OWN STUDY GUIDE OR CAN I SHARE WITH SOMEONE ELSE ?
Because listening and journaling is a big part of the experience, it is essential that you do your own reading, praying, and writing. Having your own guide on this adventure will be essential. Have your own study guide, invest your time, and see what God might do to surprise you!
WHAT IF I CAN'T ATTEND ALL 11 WEEKS ?
The 11 weeks are a cumulative, shared experience, so being present is vital not only for you, but also for the experience of the other group members. If you know you are going to miss more than 2 of the 11 meetings, we encourage you to wait. Rooted is a significant commitment of time and energy, but we know that the transformation you will experience will be worth it!
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ROOTED AND A COMMUNITY GROUP ?
Because of the catalytic nature of Rooted, the majority of Rooted groups elect to stay together after the 11 weeks to form healthy on-going Community Groups. Community Groups are small groups of individuals who meet regularly in order to pursue growing to become more like Jesus. Most groups meet weekly in homes or at the church and together live out the 7 discipleship rhythms established during Rooted. Most Community Groups have a life cycle of 24 – 48 months.
CAN I GO THROUGH ROOTED MORE THAN ONCE ?
Yes! Because Rooted is designed to be a shared experience, any subsequent experiences going through Rooted will be different. And, because Rooted is the best way to join a Community Group, in time, it’s likely you will go through Rooted more than one time.
