The Rooted experience will deepen your connection with God, His church, and your purpose in God’s epic story.
Rooted is a catalyst for life-change, provoking questions, conversations, and beyond-what-is-comfortable group experiences that are designed to help you find yourself in God’s story. You will begin to see God in new ways and hear His voice in surprising places. Through this experience, we hope you will be emboldened to live out your calling as a radical follower of Jesus. The word radical comes from the Latin root “radix,” meaning “a root.” By rooting ourselves in God’s Word and His truths, we have a firm foundation on which we love the world
Rooted is a significant commitment. Anything worth doing involves a certain amount of sacrifice. During the 10-week experience, you will engage in various “rhythms” that help you ‘tune in’ to God daily (Bible reading, journaling, and prayer) and then you will meet with your group weekly virtually or at the Journey campus to talk about what you’ve learned. You will be surprised what happens when your group gathers and begins to share honestly. As people open up, God will reveal new truths. This is where transformation happens.
There are three additional experiences designed to deepen some of the areas we explore. We’ll pray together, share our faith story, and serve together. No matter where you stand in your relationship with Jesus at the beginning of Rooted, there is always room to move forward. For some, that may mean deciding for the first time to follow Jesus and being baptized. For others it will mean letting goof the things of this world to follow His call more courageously. After 10 weeks together, we’ll join with all the other Rooted groups to celebrate the journey.
Come with an open heart and mind, and see how God will surprise you!

We believe the Rooted Experiences are essential to Rooted as a whole, and there are 4 of them; the Launch Event, the Prayer Experience, the Serve Experience and the Celebration Event at the end of the 10 weeks. At this time, we understand that some may feel uncomfortable meeting in person, and that’s okay! We will record the Launch experience, send you an adaptable virtual Prayer Experience, and host the Celebration online via Zoom. The Serve Experience will still be in person, but social distancing practices will be in effect.
Groups meeting in person will attend the Launch on September 4. Groups meeting virtually will do the Launch on their group night via video.
Groups meeting in person will talk to their life group leader for date and time. Groups meeting virtually will do the Prayer Experience on their group night via video
