What is Rooted?
- Rooted provides each participant the opportunity to connect with God, the church, and your purpose in unexpected life changing ways. Think of Rooted as a personal journey – a journey with the goal of growing YOUR relationship with God, deepening YOUR connection with the Church, and discovering YOUR purpose.
- Beyond a program, seminar, or class, Rooted is a catalyst for life-change. Rooted is a 10-week discipleship experience. The experience is shared in a small group in which you explore the Bible, engage in experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms of discipleship essential to a healthy spiritual life.
- This is one of the most important experiences that we do here at firstChristian, so you don’t want to miss it. God continues to use the Rooted experience as a tool to change our church and transform the lives of our people.
- The cost is minimal for this opportunity.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the cost of Rooted?
Rooted cost is $35 per person. You will receive a Rooted book and a Rooted t-shirt. This amount is due prior to the Rooted Launch each session. We strongly believe you will see the value of this experience once you have completed it. If money is an issue, scholarships may be available.
Who should participate in Rooted?
Rooted is a curriculum designed for ALL people. We would especially like to see people who are new to faith and/or new to firstChristian to join Rooted. It will help the new Christian learn what it means to follow God and it will challenge all Christians to deepen their walk with God.
Can I sign up with friends?
You can sign up with friends. Please indicate this on your registration form. We will do our best to place you in the same group, but don't make any guarantees that you will be in the same group. There are many factors in creating groups. We do encourage extended family members (parents, children, siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.) to not share in the same group.
What is the attendance requirement?
Rooted participants are expected to attend both outside experiences and miss no more than 2 of the normal group classes. The 10 weeks are a cumulative experience, and so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other with being at every meeting.
What are the two outside experiences?
All Rooted groups will do a Prayer Experience and a Serve Experience -- each take about two hours. While we realize there may be some extenuating circumstances, we consider these “can’t miss” experiences through the Rooted journey. Group leaders will lead groups to find dates and times that the entire group agrees upon for the Prayer and Serve Experiences.
Where will my Rooted group meet?
All Rooted groups meet at the church. The Rooted Launch and Celebration are shared experiences with all participants meeting together. These large group experiences may happen on a different night than your regular group meeting.
When will I get my book?
When will I get my Rooted t-shirt?
Is childcare available?
You will receive your workbook the first time you meet with your group at the Rooted Launch. Your leader will have your material and walk you through how to use it. You will receive the necessary information about the Rooted Launch in your confirmation email.
Rooted t-shirts will be available by the third group meeting.
It’s no surprise that we love kids at firstChristian! Unfortunately, childcare is not available. Please plan accordingly for your personal childcare needs.
Are there scholarships available?
Where may I direct more questions?
We believe that Rooted is a life-changing experience and we want everyone to participate! We understand that the Rooted registration fee may be a burden for some and we are happy to provide scholarships. When you register, please mention that you need a scholarship.
