A First Step to Life Groups
Rooted isn’t simply a bible study or a book. It is a community experience, where people practice 7 rhythms essential to a healthy relationship with Jesus. Individuals establish firm roots in the Truth of God’s Word through personal study and then come together to discuss what they’re learning in a space where they are safe and known.
What Is Rooted?
Rooted is a 10-week program for people in every life stage, wherever they are on their walk with Christ. Rooted is a catalyst for life change where discussion is held in a life group environment, creating a safe space for biblical exploration and practical learning experiences. Over the course of 10 weeks, rooted will help us put into practice not only what Jesus did, but also help us discover what our purpose is and how it fits within God’s broader redemptive narrative.
Rooted focuses on walking through the rhythms of life in order to form us, ground us, and grow us as disciples. We believe that this is the next step for Canyon Hills that enables us to offer a great discipleship tool. Rooted is not another bible study, but an experience that grows our relationship with Christ as the weekly readings teach us what it means to be a disciple of Jesus through the rhythms of life such as Scripture, prayer, worship, generosity and service.
During 2020, Rooted will be offered at three different times: the Winter (Jan-Mar), the Spring (May-Jun), and the Fall (Sep-Nov). Each of these sessions lasts about 10 weeks and will be held here on our campus on Wednesday Nights at 7:00pm. Childcare is provided for children 0-5th grade. Currently, our Rooted class is facilitated by our Executive Pastor, Carlos Lopez. If you have any questions about rooted, please email Pastor Carlos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Do I Know If Rooted Is Right for Me?
We believe that Rooted is for the person who feels disconnected and wants to be connected to something larger than themselves, see their life transformed in community by having fellowship with other people, and watch their faith grown in giving, serving, and engaging more deeply. Rooted is also the on-ramp to Life Groups here at Canyon Hills. Your Rooted group at the end of the 10 weeks becomes your Life Group, so we strongly advise that you go through Rooted before joining an open Life Group.

What If I Can’t Make All 10 Weeks?
