WHAT IS The ROOTED experience?

This Fall, we are starting a series called the Rooted Experience. It’s life-changing! It’s a message series, a Small Group study, a personal devo book and incredible experiences all wrapped up together.

The Rooted Experience is 10 weeks from September 15 through November 20.
All adults and youth (grades 6-12) will be involved and focused on this experience.

Throughout the Rooted Experience, you will deepen your connection with God, our church family, and your purpose.

And, if you have any additional questions, contact Pastor Susan Ward at - sward@gracefellowshipmn.org.

The Rooted Book

We recommend that everyone gets their own book. Each week, you will have 5 days of personal study and journaling
