WHEN DOES THE NEXT SESSION OF ROOTED BEGIN?
Our next session of Rooted will begin in Fall 2023 - stay tuned for an exact date as the season approaches!
WHAT IS ROOTED?
A 10-week small group discipleship experienced intended to catalyze your rootedness -
in God, in community, and in the unique purpose and calling God has for you.
As the sign-up process continues, we will be creating small groups of 8-10ish people to form Rooted groups under the overall "Rooted" banner, which will each be led by a skilled facilitator. We hope you'll consider joining us! Here's a little video to give you a taste of what Rooted can be like:
WHAT MAKES ROOTED DIFFERENT FROM A LIFE GROUP?
(From the Rooted Workbook)
Rooted is a significant commitment. We want to be up-front about that, but anything
worth doing involves a certain amount of sacrifice. During this 10-week experience,
you will engage in 7 Rhythms, one of which is daily devotion which will help you build
the habit of being in God’s Word and connecting with Him daily. This will be key as
you grow in your relationship with Him and connect more deeply in community when
you meet with your group to talk about what you’ve learned each week. You will be
surprised what happens when your group gathers and begins to share honestly. As
people open up and share personal stories, feelings, and questions, the Holy Spirit
moves, and God reveals new truths. This is where transformation happens.
There are three additional experiences designed to deepen some of the areas we
will explore. We’ll pray and fast together, share our faith stories, and serve together.
On top of these experiences, we’ll also discuss where we are in our journey with
Jesus. 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 get baptized. For others it will
mean letting go of the things of this world to follow His call more courageously. You
will be marked by defining moments like these.
After our 10 weeks together, you will
join with all the other Rooted groups to celebrate the journey. Our hope is that you
will continue these rhythms as your spiritual journey continues beyond Rooted. Furthermore,
we hope that this Rooted experience will launch into connection with a life group if
you are not already in one.
Come with an open heart and mind, and see how God will surprise you!
WHAT DOES COMMITMENT TO ROOTED MEAN?
A commitment to confidentiality regarding what is shared
A commitment to miss no more than 2 of the sessions
A commitment to complete the 5 daily readings for each week (about 30 mins)
A commitment to openness to God and others!
HERE IS THE WORDING OF THE COVENANT ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL SIGN:
It is our desire to promote a safe environment for sharing the most important
things in life. We want to provide a place where people can reveal openly and
confidently the broken areas of their lives without judgment or condemnation.
We are not here to “fix” one another. We encourage openness, vulnerability, and
intimacy during discussion and prayer times. In order to ensure a safe haven for
personal sharing, we ask that each Rooted participant enter into an agreement
Additionally, to get the most out of this experience, our hope is that you make
a commitment to attend all sessions and participate in the group discussions.
If you cannot be there, group dynamics will be impacted. If you know you will
miss more than two group meetings, we ask that you attend a different session
