NEXT STEPS >
Beyond a program, seminar, or small group, Rooted is a catalyst for life change. Rooted provokes questions, conversations, and beyond-what-is-comfortable group experiences that are designed to help you find yourself in God's story.
Our goal for this experience is for you to deepen your connection with God, His church, and your purpose in the epic story He is writing through human history.
This world can be fragmented, isolated, and empty, but Rooted allows you to experience a different way of life: community, intimacy, and generosity. Through this experience we hope you will be emboldened to live out your calling as a radical follower of Jesus.
During the 10-week experience, you will go through various individual exercises (daily Bible and commentary reading, journaling, and prayer) and then meet weekly in your groups to talk about what you have learned. You will be surprised by what happens when your group gathers and begins to honestly share.
There are three additional experiences designed to deepen some of the areas we explore. You’ll pray and fast together, share your faith and serve together. On top of these experiences, we'll also discuss where you are in your journey with Jesus. No matter where you stand in your relationship with Jesus at the beginning of Rooted, there is always room to move forward.
For some of us, that may mean deciding for the first time to follow Jesus and/or getting baptized. For others, it will mean letting go of the things of this world to follow His call more courageously. These kinds of defining moments will mean your life will never be the same. After our 10 weeks together, we'll join with other Rooted Groups to celebrate the journey.
Rooted is for everyone. If you are married, we strongly encourage you to participate in a Rooted Group as a couple. We typically offer Rooted several times each year; in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. The cost is $35 per person. Childcare provided. Our next session of Rooted will be scheduled at a later time. Contact Lindsey Harden for more information.
*We are always looking for Rooted Leaders who are excited to facilitate groups as they experience Rooted. *
Facilitating a Rooted Group gives you a front row seat to something remarkable - seeing God transform lives through a 10-week journey. We believe God radically uses Rooted Leaders to help people experience Jesus in profound ways. Would you consider taking this courageous step in facilitating a group this next Rooted session?
All Rooted Facilitators must meet the following commitments and requirements:
- Be a Rooted graduate
- Attend The Refinery Christian Church
- Be approved by the Rooted Pastor
- Attend all leader training meetings
