ROOTED Experience

ROOTED is a 10-week small group experience where you’ll pursue rhythms (found in Acts 2) essential to a healthy spiritual life such as: studying God’s Word, prayer, worship, generosity, service, and sharing the Gospel.

Life Groups

A Life Group is a small group of people intentionally seeking spiritual growth through ongoing community with others.  Intentional discipleship, accountability, and care for one another’s needs are key aspects of a Life Group.   

Life Groups typically meet in a home to study the Bible, pray, and offer support as we grow closer to God and each other.
