What is rooted?
Rooted is a 12-week experience, where you will go through various individual exercises (reading, prayer, journaling) and then meet weekly in groups to talk about what you have learned. The weekly readings teach us what it means to be a disciple of Jesus through an experiential model built on foundational elements of Christianity such as Scripture, prayer, worship, generosity and service. In Rooted, individuals establish firm roots in the Truth of God’s Word through personal study and then come together to discuss what they’re learning in a space where they are safe and known. Rooted is a journey for people in every life stage, wherever they are on their walk with Christ.
• Rooted is NOT just another curriculum to go through. It is a community experience, where people practice seven rhythms essential to a healthy relationship with Jesus. It becomes a catalyst for life-change.
• Rooted provides opportunities to love God, love people in the church community, and serve the community in tangible ways.
• It is a personal journey challenging you to deepen your connection with God, the Church, and your purpose in the big, epic story God is writing through human history.
• Rooted provokes questions and conversations and offers beyond-what-is-comfortable group experiences designed to give you a glimpse of your story in God’s story.
We must be honest – ROOTED is a significant commitment, but anything worth doing involves a certain amount of sacrifice. ROOTED is a 12 consecutive week commitment. Five days a week there is homework including daily readings, journaling thoughts on Bible passages and corresponding teachings, meditating on Scripture verses, and writing and praying intimate and personal prayers.
Everyone. No matter where you stand in your relationship with Jesus at the beginning of ROOTED, there is always room to move forward. Those who have not yet committed their lives to Christ will receive answers to their questions and those who consider themselves Christ followers already will gain new perspective and depth of faith.
