In a world that can be fragmented, isolated, and empty, Rooted allows you to experience a different way of life: community, intimacy, and generosity. Different from a program, seminar, or small group, Rooted is a catalyst for life-change. Rooted provokes questions, conversations, and beyond-what-is-comfortable group experiences that are designed to help you find yourself in God’s story so that you can begin to see God in new ways and hear His voice in surprising places. Through this experience we hope you will be emboldened to live out your calling as a radical follower of Jesus. (The word radical comes from the Latin root “radix,” meaning “a root.”) By rooting ourselves in God’s Word and His truths, we have a firm foundation on which we love the world.

Rooted is a significant commitment, but anything really worthwhile involves a certain amount of sacrifice. During the 10-week experience, you will go through various individual exercises (daily readings, journaling, and prayer) and then meet weekly in your group to talk about what you have learned. You will be surprised what happens when your group gathers and begins to honestly share. What God is doing in the group soon becomes the curriculum as the Holy Spirit moves people to open up and share personal stories and feelings. This is where transformation happens.
No matter where you stand in your relationship with Jesus at the beginning of Rooted, there is always room to move forward. For some of us that may mean deciding for the first time to follow Jesus and/or being baptized. For others it will mean letting go of some of the things of this world to follow His call more courageously. These kinds of defining moments will mean your life will never be the same. After our 10 weeks together, we’ll join with all the other Rooted groups to celebrate the journey.
Come with an open heart and mind, and see how God will surprise you!
