Rooted

Do you believe God has uniquely created you with a purpose and plan? What if you heard God speak and you felt the love of Jesus in a profound way? Imagine yourself in a community of people who cared for you, listened to you and supported you. What if you stepped into the Rooted journey and experienced personal transformation? Rooted is a catalyst for life change where discussion is held in a small group environment, creating a safe space for biblical exploration and practical learning experiences.

Thousands of people have been taken through Rooted here at Mariners and we believe God continues to use this curriculum as a tool to bring life change and transformation to Orange County. Rooted is a 10-week journey for people in every life stage, wherever they are on their walk with Christ. The weekly readings teach us what it means to be a disciple of Jesus through an experiential model built on foundational elements of Christianity such as Scripture, prayer, worship, generosity and service.

FAQ


What is Rooted?
Rooted is a 10-week discipleship program and a catalyst for life-change. It provokes questions and conversations and group experiences designed to give you a glimpse of your story in God’s story.

How do I register and what does it cost?
Registration is easy! Once registration is open for the upcoming session, click on which time box you want to register for and follow the steps. The cost is $50 per person to go through the course, which includes all sessions, your workbook and other materials, and the Celebration dinner at the end of the 10 weeks. This breaks down to just $5 a week!

Is there childcare available?
Childcare is available for children 0 yrs. – 5th grade, and it costs $45 per child. Once you are registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to register for childcare. This breaks down to just $4 a week for childcare!


Where will my Rooted group meet?
All of our Rooted groups meet in different rooms around campus. The launch and Celebration are held in the Community Center.

 

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 session of Rooted. The 10 weeks are a cumulative experience, and so we ask that every participant commit to honor each other with being at every meeting.

How will my Rooted group be chosen?
Our Rooted team will prayerfully place participants into groups of about 10-14 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.


What is the difference between Rooted and Life Groups?
Rooted is the on-ramp to Life Groups. Your Rooted group at the end of the 10 weeks becomes your Life Group, and so we strongly advise that you go through Rooted before joining an open Life Group.

Are there scholarships available?
We believe that Rooted is a life-changing experience and 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. Click here to apply for a scholarship.
