What can I Expect?
Mark Twain famously said, “the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
Without exception, those days come and go for every person. But at some point in our lives most of us want to find deep connections with God, others and our purpose. Rooted can help you do that in a relational and meaningful way.
Each week groups gather to discuss daily readings and explore new topics. Together you’ll serve in a local context and build confidence in who God’s designed you to be.
I Have Questions About Rooted
Is there a cost to Rooted? Yes. Rooted costs $30 per person and $55 per couple which comes to just $3 per week! This cost includes all sessions, materials and childcare must excludes the Celebration dinner after the 10 weeks.
Are there scholarships available? We strive to make the cost of Rooted affordable. But we understand that times can be hard. We don’t want anyone to miss out on this life changing experience because of financial challenges. We, therefore, offer partial scholarships to deserving applicants. A scholarship application is included in the registration form.
Is childcare available? Yes. Free, on-site childcare is available at no extra cost
How do I register for Rooted? Once registration is for the session you are interested in is open (typically 3 months before kick-off), just go to our website and click the REGISTER button. Fill out the registration form. A secure online payment option is available. Once you’ve completed the form, click SUBMIT and we will take it from there.
What if Registration is closed? If you miss the online registration. You may register in-person at the Kick-off. We, however, will not accept registrations after the Kick-off.
When will I get my Rooted Book? Rooted books are handed out at the kick-off. Watch out for an information email ahead of the kick-off
How will I be assigned a Rooted group? The Rooted prayerfully reviews every application and places participants in groups of 10-14. We typically groups people according to age, gender, marital status and life stage. We normally end up with groups for singles, married couples and co-ed groups. While we try our best to accommodate special request, we cannot guarantee that you will be placed with a group or leader of your choice.
What if I will not be able to attend all sessions? Rooted is a cumulative 10 weeks experience, meaning, the weeks build upon each other. Now, we understand that 10 weeks is a significant time commitment. However, if you prioritize attending all the 10 sessions, you will find it worth it. If you know that you will miss more than 3 weeks, we recommend that you consider a future Rooted session. Don’t worry. If you have already registered and paid, your money will be transferred to that future session.
Where will my Rooted Group Meet? All of our Rooted groups meet in different rooms in the church building. The kick-off, large groups and Celebration are held in the Center.
Please contact us if you need more clarification or have other questions.
