Rooted Discipleship Groups

What is Rooted?

Rooted is a 10-week discipleship experience designed to ignite your faith, and deepen your passion for Christ. Participants learn about, and put into practice, the same 7 rhythms of a disciple of Christ lived out in Acts 2. The Rooted experience includes 10 weekly small group studies, daily devotions, a prayer event, serve day and a celebration event for all Rooted participants.

Why are we doing it?

We wanted a group journey that went beyond knowledge and information, leaned into a transformational experience; help us group as fully devoted followers of Christ, as disciples; something that would help all believers, young and older, new and seasons grow as disciples.
