MORE ABOUT ROOTED

It's about Community

Rooted is the best way for you to get connected into a Group here at Rainier View. During your time in Rooted, you will have the opportunity to ask hard questions, talk with other people in the group, and share your story and perspective. You will find that you are not alone in the journey of following Jesus. Rooted is a safe place for everyone.

It's for Everyone

For the curious, Rooted can be approached with either an interest in knowing Jesus or simply as an observer of the essential concepts of the Christian faith. For those already following Jesus, Rooted will take you back to the foundations of faith and ask you to explore your faith and experience God’s Word in its simplicity, maybe for the first time with this kind of lens. If you think you've been a Christian for too long to benefit from Rooted, we'd encourage you to come and be surprised.

What to Expect

  • 5 days of devotions for each of the 10 weeks. 
It is a chance for you to read, reflect, journal, and write down questions. There is not a right way to do it, but it’s important to come to group prepared for the discussion that goes along with the reading.
  • 10 weeks of group time. 
Groups consist of about 10-15 people. This is where you will have a chance to dialogue about what you have observed in the devotions for the week.
  • Prayer, Serve, and Celebration experiences! 
During Rooted you will get a chance to engage God through prayer, serve with your group in local organizations (while practicing social distancing), and then celebrate what God has done and will continue to do through these groups.
