September 17–November 19
Sundays | 3:00 p.m. | Oak Brook
Sundays | 6:00 p.m. | Butterfield
Thursdays| 6:30 p.m. | Oak Brook
Being a part of a 10-week 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. We recommend Rooted as a great first step to getting involved in small group life. Former Rooted participants have hailed this as one of the best experiences on their faith journey.
Because Rooted is such a unique and immersive experience, we suggest reading through the Rooted: What You Need to Know section below.
Begin your Rooted journey by registering for our fall session below.
What is Rooted? Rooted is a 10-week group discipleship journey and a catalyst for life-change. It provokes questions, fosters conversations and provides group experiences designed to give you a glimpse of your story as it fits in God’s story.
What is the difference between Rooted and other groups? Rooted is the on-ramp to group life at Christ Church. While it does include Bible study, Rooted is much more than a Bible study! Rooted participants grow in community while practicing the seven rhythms of a healthy spiritual life. In addition to daily readings and reflection questions, groups will pray together, serve together and share their stories.
How do I register and what does it cost? Rooted registration is open and you can register here. There is a $25 Rooted registration fee covers the Rooted workbook.
Are there scholarships available? We believe that Rooted can be a life-changing experience and we want everyone to participate! We understand that the Rooted book fee may be a burden for some, so we do have some scholarships available. For more information, please email groups@ChristChurch.us.
When and where will my Rooted group meet? This session, Rooted groups will meet on Sundays (3:00 p.m.) and Thursdays (6:30 p.m.) at Christ Church Oak Brook. Rooted will also meet on Sundays at 6:00 p.m. at the Butterfield Campus.
Is there child care available? Child care is available on Sundays. The cost for child care is $50 for the first child and $25 for each additional child. The link to register for childcare is in the Rooted registration confirmation email.
What if I cannot make it to Vision Night? If you miss the kick-off, don’t worry; your leader will be in contact to get you up to speed, and you can still join your group.
What if I cannot make all 10 weeks? The Rooted journey is immersive, so we ask that you do your best to attend all group meetings. If your schedule requires you to miss more than two meetings, we ask that you join a Rooted session that better fits your schedule. The 10 weeks provide a cumulative experience, and so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other by being at every meeting possible.
When will I get my book? Books will be distributed at the Rooted Vision Night on September 17. If you are unable to attend, you can pick up your copy at the Connection Center on Sundays.
What if registration is closed? If registration is closed, we encourage you to save your spot for the next session on the waitlist. Rooted includes a 10-week curriculum and we want participants to have the benefit of all 10 weeks. Rooted groups also form a special bond as they share their stories. For these reasons, we don’t place people into Rooted groups after Week 1 has passed.
We do understand that 10 weeks is a long time to wait. We will have some opportunities to jump into community life here at Christ Church available very soon.
