Each month we need help at our food pantry we host at the Salvation Army (1 S. 415 Summit Ave., Oakbrook Terrace). A specific and special need is in relation to the tear down and packing up once our clients are served. Great opportunity to fill a big need in a short amount time making some new friends in the process.

    Rooted Groups

    Spring Session Dates | March 5–May 21, 2023
    Sundays | 4:00 p.m. | Oak Brook | Butterfield
    Wednesdays | 7:00 p.m. | Butterfield

    At Christ Church, we believe that God designed us to live in community. Rich, lasting relationships help us to grow spiritually, face life's challenges well and become who God created us to be. Group life provides us with a safe space to deepen our walk with Christ, grow closer to others and be equipped to make an impact in the world around us.

    Christ Church offers a variety of groups to accommodate people in every age and stage. Each group begins its life together by undertaking Rooted, a 10–week experience that will deepen your faith and help you discover God's purpose for your life.

    Rooted is much more than a Bible study. Each group consists of 6–12 people committed to exploring the Bible, engaging in prayer, serving others, sharing their stories and developing the practices essential to a healthy spiritual life. Because Rooted is such a unique and immersive experience, we suggest reading through the Rooted: What You Need to Know section below.

    Being a part of a Rooted group requires an investment of your time and commitment to engage in the weekly readings and reflections, participating in group discussions and volunteer initiatives. It may seem like a big ask, but we don’t hesitate to make it because we know the journey is life-changing. Time and time again people tell us that they are glad they made the decision to get involved in a group. They are closer to God. They have made significant relationships. And they feel more at home and invested in the church.

    If you’d like to join a group before March 2023, we encourage you to explore a LIFT Group. You’ll find all information here

    Rooted registration is open. You can register here.

    If you have any questions, feel free to email us at groups@ChristChurch.us; a Rooted team member will be happy to chat with you. You can also find the Rooted schedule here.
