Three summer Rooted groups are forming now. We have a womens, young adult and mixed ages group starting in the next few weeks.

DO YOU HAVE A DESIRE TO CONNECT WITH GOD, OUR CHURCH, AND YOUR PURPOSE?
Rooted is a 10-week group interaction where we practice seven key rhythms of the Christian life: Daily Devotion, Prayer, Freedom from Strongholds, Serving the Community, Sacrificial Generosity, Sharing your Story, and Celebration.
We get together weekly with our Rooted group to talk about what God has been showing us as we go through the week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer.
IT’S NOT ANOTHER BIBLE STUDY.
Rooted is a way to help transform us into fully devoted followers of Jesus. When we ran it in January 2020 as a whole church, we had over 300 people participate! Whether you’ve been a Christian for a long time or you’re new to faith in Christ, Rooted has the potential to have a greater impact on your spiritual growth than anything else you do this coming year. This summer and fall we will be offering Rooted again in anticipation of our Rooted sequel “Restoring Rythm” which will be an all church series starting in January 2022. We want to give the opportunity for more people to experience Rooted before the end of this year so most of the church will be caught up for our Part 2!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Rooted?
Rooted is a 10 week discipleship experience that connects people to God, the church, and their purpose.
The format originated from a church in Africa, then was adapted by an international team of authors at Mariners church in California. During the past five years it’s been used in over 500 churches in the United States and internationally. See www.experiencerooted.com for more on how Rooted is affecting lives.
What Should I Expect if I Attend?
A group of people just like you committed to encouraging each other through this discipleship journey. You will meet as a group weekly (with breaks as needed) for 10 weeks, discussing that week’s daily encounters and growing through discipleship experiences.
Is There Homework?
Rooted includes a workbook and asks participants to engage in a 15-20-minute Bible reading, devotion, and response 5 days a week. It’s an accessible and meaningful way to grow during the Rooted experience!
How Do I Get My Materials?
Rooted workbooks will be distributed through the small group facilitator. They cost $15, or $25 per couple. (Everyone has their own book because you will journal in it.) The church will cover all other costs because we want to make this as accessible as possible. Pay at the first session.
You won’t find Rooted workbooks on Amazon.com or ChristianBook.com because no one resells a workbook they have written in. Other books found online called “Rooted” are not the same as what we are doing. If you want to look at a workbook/journal, just come by the church office.
What if I'm not able to attend every session?
The summer and fall Rooted groups are self contained, so hopefuly you can all agree on a schedule with breaks for vacations etc. so that people can participate in most of the sessions.
