Rooted


Rooted

Do you believe God has uniquely created you with a purpose and plan? What if you heard God speak and you felt the love of Jesus in a profound way? Imagine yourself in a community of people who cared for you, listened to you and supported you. What if you stepped into the Rooted journey and experienced personal transformation? Rooted is a catalyst for life change where a discussion is held in a small group environment, creating a safe space for biblical exploration and practical learning experiences.

Rooted is a 10-week journey for people in every life stage, wherever they are on their walk with Christ. The weekly readings teach us what it means to be a disciple of Jesus through an experiential model built on foundational elements of Christianity such as Scripture, prayer, worship, generosity, and service.

frequently asked questions

Rooted is a 10-week discipleship experience and a catalyst for life-change. It provokes questions and conversations and group experiences designed to give you a glimpse of your story in God’s story.

All of our Rooted groups meet in different rooms around our Bloomington location.

Rooted will be the on-ramp to Vale Groups. Your Rooted group at the end of the 10 weeks becomes your Vale Group.

Registration is easy! Once registration is open for the upcoming session, click on which time box you want to register for and follow the steps. The cost is $55 per person to go through the course, which includes all sessions, your workbook and other materials, and the Celebration dinner at the end of the 10 weeks. This breaks down to just a little over $5 a week!

Childcare is available for children 0 yrs. – 5th grade, and it costs $45 per child. This breaks down to just $4 a week for childcare!

We understand that Rooted is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth it to invest in the entire process. If you know you are going to miss more than 2 meetings, we ask that you wait until the next session of Rooted. The 10 weeks are a cumulative experience, and so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other with being at every meeting.

Our Rooted team will prayerfully place participants into groups of about 10-14 people. We group by age, marital status, and life stage. We form groups of married couples, singles, women, men, and young adults. These groups ultimately depend upon the demographic of those who registered. A substantial amount of prayer and thoughtfulness goes into creating groups which we think will provide the best experience for all people who attend. While we do our best to honor requests when possible, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all friend or leader requests.

Rooted Facilitators get a front row seat to something remarkable – God transforming lives. Rooted leaders must have graduated from Rooted and agree to our leadership commitment. Contact our Groups Director, Lyn Mounce, for more information. (lmounce@vale.church.)
