Root Your Life in Jesus
The Rooted Experience is a 10-week journey where you will grow deeper in your faith, share significant faith-stories, and experience life-change. You will receive teaching directly from the Bible, discuss your learnings in your group, and apply your learnings through powerful service.
Beyond a bible study, seminar, or class, The Rooted Experience leads to life-change. It provokes questions, conversations, and group experiences that will help you know God, grow deeper, and go serve. You begin to experience God in a whole new way. In a time when life feels broken, distracted, and lonely; we can truly find community, intimacy, and generosity.
