Rooted is a discipleship experience that will connect you with God, the church, and your purpose. Rooted teaches people what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, built on faith’s foundational elements such as worship, generosity, service, evangelism, prayer, and studying God’s word.

This 11-week experience will consist of a combination of small group discussions, meaningful personal experiences, and discipleship practices.

“The Bible was not given for our information, but for our transformation.”
— D.L. Moody

What is Rooted?
Rooted is an 11-week discipleship experience that connects people to God, the church, and their purpose. These experiences happen in a Small Group setting that continues after the 11 weeks ends.

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 to discuss that week’s daily encounters and grow through discipleship experiences.

Do I have to show up every week?
We hope you will! If you think you will miss three or more meetings you might want to consider joining us for the next round of Rooted.

How will my group be determined?
Your group will be determined geographically or by personal preference. This may vary from campus to campus.

Are there scholarships available?
We believe that Rooted is a life-changing experience, and we want everyone to participate! If the Rooted registration fee is a burden for your budget, please contact us so we can help.

Where is it at?
Rooted Groups will be meeting in person at each 2|42 location.

Is childcare available?
Yes. Childcare is available for Rooted groups meeting at 2|42 locations.

What happens when it is over?
Rooted is one way new Small Groups begin. Towards the end of the Rooted experience, you’ll learn how you can be part of your continuing group. The chance to lead your own Rooted group in the future may be offered as well.

What is a Small Group?
A Small Group is a group of people who meet regularly to discuss the weekend message, support each other in taking next steps with God, and live on mission together in their community.

If I miss this session of Rooted, when will it be held again?
The next session of Rooted will be held in the winter of 2023.
