Sign up now for Fall Session 2017 beginning Sept 10
Connect with God, the church community, and your purpose in unexpected, life-changing ways.
The Rooted experience redefines how people live life and view their relationship with God and others, giving context to what it means to be a part of something bigger. You will begin to see God in new ways, allowing you to experience a different way of life: community, authenticity and generosity.
SUNDAYS (MEN/WOMEN/MIXED) September 10–November 12
8:45 am–10:15 am in the Gym
Child drop-off begins at 8:30 am
CELEBRATION DINNER FOR ALL GROUPS Friday, November 17 6:00 pm in the Gym
Rooted is an interactive experience. In the course of 10 weeks, you will get together weekly with your group to talk about what God has been revealing to you as you go through the week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer. You will also learn from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage, and guide each member. Your group will share two experiences together outside of your group time: prayer, and serving. After the last session, you’ll join together with other groups and celebrate how God is working to connect each of you with your passion, your purpose, and your community. CLICK HERE to see The 7 Rhythms of Rooted.
COST: Cost is $35 and includes study guide and other materials, plus a three-course meal at the celebration.
