The Rooted experience redefines how people live
life and view their relationship with God and others, giving context to what it
means to be a part of something bigger. You will begin to see God in new ways,
allowing you to experience a different way of life: community, authenticity and
generosity. If you have been to Alpha, this is a great next step.
Rooted is an interactive experience. In the course of 11
weeks, you will get together weekly with your rooted group to
talk about what God has been revealing to you as you go through each
week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer. You will also learn
from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage and guide each
member. As part of the group time, each person will share their story
throughout the weeks. Some groups will meet at the Church on Sundays from
5-7p (where childcare will be available). Some groups will meet
during the week in homes. Tell us below which time is preferable.
In order to begin to live out what you are learning, your group will
share three experiences together outside of your group
time: Prayer Experience, Serve, and Rooted Retreat. On the last
session, you’ll join together with other groups for dinner and celebrate
how God is working to connect each of you with your passion, your
purpose, and your community. The dates for these Experiences are below: Rooted Kickoff - Sun, February 11th from 5-7p in the Barn at Grace
Anglican (all groups together; childcare available) Prayer Experience - Sun, February 25th from 4pm-7pm at Grace Anglican

Rooted Registration Fee (Due by Feb. 11th) is $35.00 per person (pay
