Do you believe you were created with a purpose and a plan? We do! Now imagine being a part of a community of people who support and encourage you as you journey towards discovering God’s presence in a fresh and profound way.

Rooted is a discipleship experience designed to deepen your connection with God, the church, and your purpose. Whether you’re brand new to church or a long time Christian, Rooted will stretch your faith and help you discover how your unique story fits into God’s bigger narrative. This isn’t just another program, group or curriculum – Rooted is a catalyst for life-change that will provoke questions, stir conversations and help you dive deep as you encounter God’s design for your life as a fully devoted follower of Jesus.

After completing Rooted, most groups continue on as LifeGroups. This makes Rooted an ideal on-ramp to joining a small group and getting connected with a great community. We strongly encourage you to go through Rooted before joining an open LifeGroup. Rooted is offered multiple times each year.

“Before Rooted I felt like I didn’t have a
close community…no one was pouring
into me…I felt lonely. Today I have a group
who has journeyed with me and been
vulnerable. God is faithful!”
-- Cathy
"10 weeks ago I was not at peace and wondered
if God saw me. Because of Rooted I know God
knows me, sees me, loves me and is in every
detail of my life!"
-- Rikki
“I am fairly new to North Carolina and to
newhope, but through Rooted I have met
more than a dozen folks on fire for Christ
that I have gotten to know in a deep way.”
-- Alan

Is there childcare available?

Programming for children is available at most campuses for children 6 weeks – 5th grade for an additional cost. These packages begin at $75 which breaks down to just $7.50 a week! Children’s programming for the Final Celebration are free of charge.

Where will my Rooted group meet?

Rooted groups typically meet in different rooms around your campus.

What if I cannot make all ten weeks?

We understand that Rooted is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth it to invest in the entire process. If you know you are going to miss more than 2 meetings, we ask that you wait until the next Rooted session. This journey is a cumulative experience, and so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other by attending all meetings.

How will my Rooted group be chosen?

Our Rooted team will prayerfully place participants in groups of about 10-14 people. We offer a variety of different Rooted group types – married, single, blended, men, women and young adult. We take age, marital status, location and life stage into consideration so that through prayer we can create groups that will provide a great experience for all who attend.

Our hope is that groups mesh together well and ultimately continue on as a LifeGroup after concluding Rooted. While we do our best to honor requests when possible, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all friends or leader requests.

What is the difference between Rooted and LifeGroups?

Rooted is the on-ramp to LifeGroups. Many Rooted groups will build a strong community together and will continue on as a LifeGroup after Rooted. We strongly advise that you go through Rooted before joining an open LifeGroup.

Can I facilitate a Rooted group?

Being a Rooted Facilitator is an exciting role as you get to see God transform people’s lives. Rooted facilitators must have graduated from Rooted and agree to our leadership commitment. You can begin the process of becoming a Rooted facilitator by submitting our Rooted Facilitator Application.

Are there scholarships available?

We believe Rooted is such a life changing experience that we want everyone to participate! We understand that the Rooted registration fee may be a burden for some and we are happy to provide scholarships. Please complete our Scholarship Application if you are interested in receiving assistance.
