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.

Mosaic Family Recovery Group
Tuesdays, March 6 - May 1
The Mosaic Family Recovery Group meets on Tuesdays, from March 6 - May 1, from 5:30-6:30 pm in Room C5.
What is a Mosaic Family? It is multi-generational individuals and families, living as a unit! Family structures in America have become more complex, growing from the traditional family group consisting of two parents and their children to multi- generational families that may or may not be related. Drugs, incarceration, abandonment, homelessness, joblessness, and the effect it creates on families may continue for generations. Intergenerational effects of substance abuse can have a negative impact on role modeling, trust, and concepts of standard behavior and this can create a difficult situation between generations in the home.
This 8-week recovery group will focus on different topics to help you move forward with strength and perseverance through Scripture, coping skills, life skills, and the power of sharing together with individuals who are experiencing similar situations. Is your family a Mosaic Family? Would you like to receive tools to help you as you journey in this environment? Then please join us.
This group will become a closed group after the first three weeks.
