what is rooted?
A 10-week pathway to get you connected to God, the church, serving in our community, and discovering your purpose.
It’s not just another study or curriculum. It’s a way to meet people and grow through deep conversations and learn about spiritual rhythms. You will have daily devotions, experience a prayer service, serve a local community organization, and celebrate!
Rooted is for everyone – the person who has been attending church for 50 years, or the person who has never walked through the church doors. All are welcome.
It’s about Community:
Rooted is the best way for you to get connected into a community group here at Rainier View. Our hope is that after these 10 weeks, groups stay together and continue in these new rhythms of prayer, service, and celebrating.
During your time in Rooted, you will have the opportunity to ask hard questions, talk with other people in the group, and share your story and perspective. You will find that you are not alone in the journey of learning to follow Jesus. Rooted is a safe place for everyone.
It’s For Everyone
If you are a living, breathing, human on this earth, then we believe that Rooted is for you! If you are feeling alone, on the struggle bus, seeking, wondering, tired, strong, happy, purposed, hurting, or anything else in between, then Rooted is for you! Rooted is for the seeker. Rooted is for the follower. Rooted is for everyone!
What To Expect?
- 10 weeks of group time. Groups consist of about 10-15 people. This is where you will have a chance to dialogue about what you have observed in the reading this past week.
- 5 days of devotions for each of the 10 weeks. It is a chance for you to read, reflect, journal, and write down questions. There is not a right way to do it, but it’s important to come to group prepared for the discussion that goes along with the reading.
- Prayer, Serve, and Celebration experiences! During Rooted you will get a chance to engage God through prayer, serve with your group in local organizations, and then celebrate what God has done and will continue to do through these groups.
