Rooted is offered twice a year. Our next semester is underway. Please join us this fall!
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. If you have been to Alpha, this is a great next step.

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 three experiences together outside of your group time: prayer, serving, and sharing your story. On the last session, you’ll join together with other groups for dinner and celebrate how God is working to connect each of you with your passion, your purpose, and your community.
Cost is $45 per person and includes the study guide, materials, and two dinners. Scholarships are available. More information about Rooted Retreat costs will be coming soon. If you have any questions about these costs, please contact Dan Wolf.
Please note weekly dinner is not provided. However, dinner will be available at the kickoff on September 8th and the Celebration on November 13th.
Childcare will be provided in conjunction with Funday School and Jr. High Youth Group if your group meets on Sunday evenings.
After the first session, please note some groups will meet Sunday evenings at the church or at other locations during the week. See schedule above for locations.
If you have any questions, please contact your leader or email Dan Wolf.
