Finding lasting community at Osage Hills begins with Rooted.
Rooted is a 10-week small group experience designed to connect you to God, the church, and your purpose. Together, in a group of 10-15 people from all walks of life, you’ll explore the Bible, engage in prayer and serve experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. These spiritual rhythms aren’t new, or something the church recently created, every one of them is found in Acts 2 where the early church began. We will provide you with a facilitator who is trained to come alongside your group to help you get the most out of the experience. Rooted is available at various times through the year. Register for the next available Rooted experience in the Church Center app.

Childcare is available during our Wednesday night groups for children in nursery – 5th grade and is not available for groups that meet on Sunday. They will have their own programming available for them as well. Check it out!
If you miss Week One, your leader will be in contact with you and you can still join your group. For the best Rooted experience, we recommend not missing more than 2 weeks. If your schedule requires you to miss more than two, feel free to jump in when the next Rooted session starts.
We understand that Rooted is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth the investment for 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.
Our Rooted team will prayerfully place participants into groups of about 10-15 people. We group by age, marital status, life stage, and try to include your preferred time. We form groups of married couples, singles (not co-ed), 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.

Rooted is the on-ramp to Connect Groups. Your Rooted group at the end of the 10 weeks becomes your Connect Group, and so we strongly advise that you go through Rooted before joining an open Connect Group if possible.
You will receive your workbook at Launch Night, week 1 of the Rooted Experience.
We believe that Rooted is a life-changing experience and we want everyone to participate! We understand that the Rooted workbook may be a burden for some and we are happy to provide scholarships. Please contact Nate Stephan via email for more info: email@example.com.
