Testimonials

“If I didn’t go through Rooted I wouldn’t have a definite definition of who I am as a person, I am forever a child of God, and no matter what I go through that will never change.”Jessica Quimpo
“Sometimes we become stagnant in our faith, and Rooted challenged me to reconsider why I believe what I do, and this ultimately drew me closer to God.”Emily Alvarez
“I didn’t have a home church for a while and after going through Rooted it solidified for me that this is it, this is my church.”Megan DeVries

F.A.Q.

Each ROOTED participant must register at friends.church/rooted and pay $40 to cover the cost of a ROOTED study guide, materials, and a celebration event. We recognize that $40 might be a challenging expense, and therefore have limited scholarship funds available. Please contact Jen if you are interested in receiving assistance.

If you’re not currently in a Life Group, you will be placed in a newly created ROOTED group. Our staff will seek discernment when assigning people to a group and a leader. When we have followed this process in the past, we have seen God do what only He can by providing the right blend of group members and leaders.

At our Yorba Linda Campus, ROOTED groups will meet on Sundays at 10:30A and Tuesdays at 7:00P, depending on the day you choose. At our Orange Campus, ROOTED groups will meet at the Packing House.

As you join a new ROOTED group, you will receive a book at your first session.

Yes, you’ll discover that each ROOTED group will unpack, discuss, and apply the weekly content in a unique way. For instance, a same gender group’s interaction with the material will often be distinctly different than a mixed group’s experience.

No, please only register for ROOTED once. On the registration space provided, indicate the names of both group leaders. Also, it might be helpful for you to let both group leaders know that you will be participating in two groups.

ROOTED is not just another Bible study. It’s not a typical discipleship program. This material originally came from Africa, where it had a transformational effect. The title was “Mizizi” – Swahili for “Roots”. It was developed by, Pastor Muriithi Wanjau of Mavuno Church in Nairobi, Kenya. It is unlike most programs or studies as it is an experience and a journey. It will involve five days of short homework preparation each week which include writing prayers to God, journaling, listening, and challenging one another to grow in new ways. If you’re willing to invest in this completely, your perspectives may be completely transformed.

Because this is a listening and journaling experience, it is essential that you do your own reading, praying, and writing. Having your own “guide” on this adventure will be essential. Buy your own book, invest your time, and see what God might do to surprise you.

If you are a ROOTED leader, we have resources for you!
