The Rooted Experience

Sign-up for Rooted Now

Our next session of Rooted is on September 9th, 2024!


The Rooted Experience is an 11-week journey designed to help you grow close to God, your church, and other believers. We believe Rooted will impact your faith journey and overall life, whether you are not sure God is real, have been a Christian for a short time, or for your entire life.  Over the 11-week journey, you will learn about Rooted's Seven Rhythms and how to implement them into your life.

Rooted offers learning through experience.

Research has proven that one of the most powerful ways we retain information is through experience. Rooted isn't just about head knowledge - it's about taking risks and actually doing the things Jesus did. People practice these seven rhythms essential to a healthy relationship with Jesus: daily devotion, prayer, freedom from strongholds, sacrificial generosity, serving the community, sharing your story, and celebrating.

At the beginning of Rooted, you will be paired with a small group of people in a similar life stage. From there, you will receive a workbook with daily devotions for you to follow along with. Each week, you will come together with your group and discuss what you learned. Outside of that, you will also have an opportunity to serve our community, go through a prayer experience, and finish Rooted with a celebration that includes worship and great food!

Here at Vale Church, we believe everyone has a next step. No matter where you are in your faith journey, take a step forward and sign up for Rooted today!

There will be roughly 12 to 14 people in a group, depending on demand. This number changes each season.

Rooted groups are led by people who have already completed the experience, have a desire to lead people through Rooted, and have been selected by Vale Church staff to facilitate.

Rooted groups are formed primarily based on life stage. We take into consideration factors such as your age, marital status, and whether or not you have children. We as a staff pray over these groups and put them together with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We recommend that Rooted participants not miss any more than two meetings for two main reasons. First, if you miss three or more weeks, you will not get the full experience you paid for and are expecting. Second, you will miss out on things that are shared, which will affect the group dynamic when you return. If you miss more than two sessions, you may be asked to re-start in a future session.

Yes, partial financial scholarships are available based on need. Please call the Vale Church office or email Matt to request a scholarship application.
