The Rooted Experience
Do you have a desire to connect with God, the church, and your purpose? Then we’d love to encourage you to be a part of Rooted.
The Rooted experience will redefine how you live your life and view your relationships 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.
Rooted is an interactive 10-week experience where you’ll learn seven key rhythms of the Christian life: Daily Devotion, Prayer, Freedom from Strongholds, Serving the Community, Sacrificial Generosity, Sharing your Story, and Celebration.
You will get together weekly with your Rooted group to talk about what God has been revealing to you as you go through the week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer.
Rooted is NOT another Bible study.
It’s a way God is working to transform us into fully devoted followers. Whether you’ve been a Christian for a long time or new to faith in Christ, Rooted has the potential to have a bigger impact on your spiritual growth than anything else you do this year.
Rooted is a commitment. We want to be upfront about that, but anything worth doing involves some level of sacrifice.
If you sign-up to be a part of Rooted, the expectation is that you will be present for each one of the ten week gatherings and that you will commit to the daily devotions. If, at this time, you cannot commit to at least nine of the ten weeks of Rooted it would probably be best to wait.
Starting on September 9, Rooted will meet on Mondays from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM.
On November 16, Rooted will conclude with a large group celebration!
The cost of Rooted is $35 and that will cover all materials and the celebration dinner.
This initial launch of Rooted will be limited to 100 people.

Frequently Asked Questions
+ WHAT IS ROOTED?

+ WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IF I ATTEND?
A group of people just like you committed to encouraging each other through this discipleship journey. You will meet as a group weekly for 10 weeks, discussing that week’s daily encounters and growing through discipleship experiences. There will also be three large group gatherings where all Rooted Groups will meet together at the same time.
+ Is there homework?
Rooted includes a book and asks participants to engage in a 15-20-minute Bible reading, devotion, and response 5 days a week. It’s an accessible and meaningful way to grow during the Rooted experience!
+ Can I sign up with a group of people for Rooted?
You can sign up with a group of people for Rooted. However, please be aware we must limit our Rooted groups to 12-14 people in each group. For example, if your small group has 8 people, we may add 6 more people to the group in order to fill it up.
+ Can my small group do the Rooted curriculum?
One of the requirements of Rooted is that the facilitator has participated and completed a Rooted group. If you have completed the Rooted curriculum in group setting, you can take your small group through it at one of the specified times. (See Can I sign up with a group of people for Rooted?)
+ DO I HAVE TO SHOW UP ALL 10 WEEKS?
The 10 week Rooted experience is 13 total sessions; 10 on your normal group time, 2 outside experiences with your group and a final Celebration that you can't miss. Rooted participants are expected to attend both outside experiences and miss no more than 2 weeks of the normal group time. If you think you will miss three or more meetings you might want to consider joining us for the next round of Rooted.
+ HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Rooted at K1 costs $35, which pays for your workbook, supplemental materials, Celebration Dinner at the end. Your fee also helps provide scholarships for others that need financial aid. We believe you will see the value of this experience once you have completed it. Payment information can be found on the registration page.
+ Are there refunds available if I do not complete Rooted?
If you communicate that you are dropping out after session 3, there are no refunds. If you communicate that you are dropping out before session 3 and your Rooted workbook is untouched, a full refund is available after it has been turned in or a partial refund of $20.00 is available if your Rooted workbook has been used.
+ HOW DO I GET MY MATERIALS?

Yes, childcare is available for $5 per/child, per/week, but no more than $10 per family.
+ What if I miss more than 2 of the normal group times?
The Rooted experience is so important that you will be asked to withdraw from the current session and register for the next.
+ What if I miss one of the 2 outside experiences?
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.

All Rooted groups will do a Prayer Experience and a Serve Experience -- each take about 3 hours.
