What is ROOTED?

ROOTED is a 10-week discipleship journey involving personal Bible readings (5 days/week), responding to a few questions each day, and then meeting together with your ROOTED group once each week.

In addition, each group will have a group prayer gathering, a group serve experience, and will participate in the church-wide ROOTED Celebration.

Who is ROOTED for?

ROOTED is for all adults and High School students. We anticipate having men’s groups, women’s groups, and couples’ groups. HS ROOTED is being planned for Wednesday evenings.

What is the focus of ROOTED?

The focus of ROOTED is to help people Connect with God, Connect with Your Purpose, and Connect with the Church.

How much does ROOTED cost?

The cost for ROOTED is $39 per person. (Each person will need to have their own ROOTED Notebook.)

What is included in the registration fee?

Each registration will include all materials needed for ROOTED. You will receive a ROOTED Notebook, a meal will be provided at the ROOTED Celebration, and some ROOTED swag will be coming your way! (In addition, the needed ROOTED Facilitation materials will be provided for your group’s facilitator.) A limited number of partial and/or full scholarships are available if the cost of ROOTED makes it prohibitive for you to participate.

How much time will ROOTED require of me?

You will spend approximately 15 minutes each day (5 days / week) completing the daily readings and responding to the questions for reflection. Then, your ROOTED group will meet for about 90 minutes each week. A Prayer Event will be planned (by your group) and a Serve Event will be planned (also by your group). The ROOTED Celebration is planned for Wed Nov 14 @ 6 PM (at the conclusion of our ROOTED journey).

Do I need to attend the group all 10 weeks?

Basically, yes! If you are going to miss two or more ROOTED group meetings, it would probably be better (for you and your fellow group members) to wait until another ROOTED Session when you can more fully participate.
