The Work as Worship Retreat is an event to help people break down the wall between Sunday and the rest of the week. Join other working Christians from every vocation for a livestream event about connecting faith and work. This event is for every working person—not just those who work nine to five in an office. If you want to grow in your faith and learn how your work can be an act of worship, we invite you to attend.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When will I get my book?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:23:14-05:00
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.
What if Registration is closed?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:21:23-05:00
Yes. Rooted is an adult only curriculum (18 years +). However, there is a Youth curriculum called Rooted Essentials. If you’re interested in Rooted for High School students, contact our Next Gen Pastor, Ryan Summerhill by email: email@example.com or phone: (918) 583-9482.
How will my Rooted group be chosen?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:19:06-05:00
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.
What if I cannot make all ten weeks?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:16:59-05:00
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.
What if I cannot make it to Week One?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:15:47-05:00
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.
Is there childcare available?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:15:07-05:00
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!
Where will my Rooted group meet?Nate Stephan2022-08-29T11:12:26-05:00
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 in the Church Center app. Cost for each participant is currently $50 and includes the workbook and covers celebration costs at the end of the experience. Once you are registered, you will receive a confirmation email with additional information about the launch date and what to expect when we begin.
This event is primarily for those who work but it is not limited to those who do. Anyone can come as long as they register online. This is not an event only for adults either. Young people can be inspired by the content of this retreat as well.
