Your Spiritual Growth Begins Here

God does not call us to follow Him alone. He calls us into spiritual family. Rooted is a 10-week small group experience designed to stimulate your spiritual growth, connect you with Lake Sawyer, and surround you with people who love and support you. Whether you’ve been a follower of Christ for a long time or new to faith, Rooted has the potential to have a bigger impact on your spiritual growth than anything else you do this year. If you aren't experiencing what you were made for, join Rooted to discover what you've been missing. You were made for more.

Not a Bible Study. A Spiritual Family.

Take Your Next Step

Rooted is the best way for you to get connected into a group here at Lake Sawyer. 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.

Our next Rooted session begins Sun, Sep 25th.

Your Life Will Be Changed.

What you can expect

Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about Rooted.

All our Rooted groups meet on campus weekly beginning Sunday, September25th. Weekly meetings are from 5-6:30 with the exception of weeks 1, 3, 7 and 10 where we will meet from 5-7pm for dinner in addition to group time and planned experiences.

The cost is $30 for adults, $20 for high school students, $15 for middle school students, $5 for elementary students. This fee will help offset the cost of programming, including printed materials for participants and facilitators. Scholarships are available.

We believe that Rooted is a life-changing experience and we want everyone to participate! We understand that the cost may be a burden for some and we are happy to provide scholarships. Contact us to apply for a scholarship.

Our fall 2022 session of Rooted is for the whole family! We have curriculum and small group experiences for ages kindergarten though 12th grade (no kids program available for infants-PreK). Register your family now!

To get the most out of this experience, our hope is that you make a commitment to attend all sessions and participate in the group discussions. If you cannot be there, group dynamics will be impacted. If you know you will miss more than two group meetings, we ask that you attend a different session of Rooted.

Our Rooted team will prayerfully place participants into groups of about 10-12 people. We group by age, marital status, and life stage. We form groups of married couples, singles, women, men, and young adults. These groups ultimately depend upon the demographic of those who registered. A substantial amount of prayer and thoughtfulness goes into creating groups which we think will provide the best experience for all people who attend. While we do our best to honor requests when possible, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all friend or leader requests.

Our goal is for graduated Rooted groups to continue as ongoing Small Groups. These Small Groups continue the life-change and rhythms learned in Rooted with regular meeting times and intentional curriculum, training, and experiences that ultimately help you find your place of service and destiny.
