Before Rooted I was curious about God and longing for a deeper relationship. Now I am fulfilled, motivated, and renewed!

– Peter, Participant

I was scared of who would be in my group, and scared to share things about myself. Today I feel like I can say anything in this group and not be judged.

– Keith, Participant

I was standing still in my faith. Today I am moving forward with a firm faith.

– Jan, Participant

I doubted God could use me. Today I am being used by God!

Eli, Rooted Facilitator

I had a very basic relationship with God. Today I am excited about my faith for the first time in my life.

– Ryan, Participant

Additional Info

The Rooted experience takes place over 10 weeks in a small group of 6-10 people, led by two trained facilitators.

You will receive a workbook with short daily readings and reflection questions. Each week you’ll have 5 days of “homework,” which takes about. 20 minutes. The reading and questions will serve as the basis for the discussion during your weekly meetings.

There are two additional meetings during the session: a Prayer Experience (in week 3), and a Serve Experience (in week 6).

FAQs

Rooted groups are formed primarily based on your geographic location in Spokane or the surrounding region. So if you live up north, in the Spokane Valley, or on the South Hill, you’ll be placed into a group of people who live near you. Your location takes precedence over your age or marital status when groups are formed, so you’ll likely end up in a group of mixed ages and stages of life. We’ve found that these groups are the most exciting, so this is our default group type.

Yes, there is a space on your registration where you can add friend requests.

We recommend that Rooted participants not miss more than two meetings for two reasons. First, if you miss three or more weeks, you will not get the full experience. Second, your group will be affected. You will miss out on things that are shared, which will affect the group dynamic when you return.

We have three sessions of Rooted each year, so we recommend sitting down with your calendar before you register. If you know you will miss more than two of the weekly group meetings, consider joining a following session.

Rooted costs $50 for an individual. This covers the workbook, a catered meal at the Celebration, snacks on Launch Night and Week 7, some swag items for participants, and gifts for group facilitators. It helps offset facilitator’s costs, including books and weekly meals, and administrative costs like print materials, pens, table rentals, etc.

Yes, partial scholarships are available based on need.

Please register each child in addition to yourself.
