Welcome To Rooted
Rooted is a discipleship experience that leads you through 7 behaviors essential to a healthy relationship with Jesus and an understanding of your purpose in God’s story. You will work your way through weekly readings that teach foundational elements of Christianity such as scripture, prayer, generosity and service.
Rooted is for people in every life stage, whether you’re just now learning about who Jesus is, or been attending church for a few months or you’ve been following Jesus for 20+ years. The reality is, wherever you are in your faith, we are all continually in transition to live the way God intended.
We here at FCC believe we all need to be continually challenged in our faith in order to experience transformation. Joining a Rooted group can seem intimidating or even scary. However, our promise to you is this: If you go through Rooted, you will grow relationally with others and with God. It will impact both your purpose in life and how you live out that purpose.

How do I register and what does it cost?
Registration is easy! Just click the “Register for Rooted” button and follow the steps. The cost is $50 per person to go through the course, which includes all sessions, your workbook, other materials, and the celebration dinner. This breaks down to less than $5 a week.
How many weeks is Rooted?
Rooted is an eleven-week commitment. Ten weeks working through the workbook and one week to celebrate the Rooted experience.
How long are the weekly gatherings?
The weekly Wednesday gatherings are from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the FCC campus. In addition to the Wednesday weekly gatherings, there are two additional gatherings for the prayer experience and serve experience. Those times will be determined by your group.
Is childcare available?
Childcare is available for children from birth to 5 years old. We also offer a Kids Rooted Program for children kindergarten – 5th grade. Parents of 6th to 8th grade students can have their child attend our midweek program called CORE. There is no cost for childcare or student programming, but please register on-line.
Can my Community Group go through Rooted?
Yes! Please contact your Groups Director at FCC to discuss best options for your group to go through Rooted.
Where will my Rooted group meet?
All of our Rooted groups meet in different rooms around the FCC campus. The launch will be held in The Commons and the celebration will be held in The SHED.
How will my Rooted group be chosen?
Our Rooted team will prayerfully place people into groups. If you have a request to be with a certain person, please let us know upon registration by emailing John Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I can’t make all ten weeks?
We realize that Rooted is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth it. Due to this belief, if you know you are going to miss more than 2 of the 10 meetings, we ask that you wait until the next session of Rooted. We do not want you to miss the prayer experience (between weeks 3 & 4) or the strongholds conversation (week 5) when you go through Rooted. The 10 weeks are a cumulative experience and so we ask for your consistency each week.
Will there be food provided during the weekly gatherings?
Though you are more than welcome to bring your own food, or even potluck with your Rooted group, the Rooted team will not be providing food for your gatherings. This is with the exception of launch night (refreshments and snacks) and the celebration (full dinner).
Why do I have to pay?
Rooted is a 10-week experience, which includes a workbook and a celebration dinner. Your fee helps cover the cost of those events as well as providing scholarships for others that need financial aid. We believe you will see the value of this experience once you have completed it.
When do I get my materials?
You will receive your workbook the first time you meet together with your group. Your group facilitator will explain how the workbook is used.
Can I facilitate a Rooted group?
In order to lead Rooted you must first attend Rooted and not miss the prayer experience or strongholds conversation.
