Life is meant to be lived in circles.

Launching August 27 & August 31, 2017! 

Imagine yourself in a community of people who care for you, listen to you, and support you. We believe God has uniquely created each of us with a purpose and plan, and one of the ways we can hear Him speak into our lives and experience His love is in connection with others.

Joining a Rooted group is your first step to experiencing that kind of deep and meaningful community. Rooted is a catalyst for life change. The interaction with others that takes place in this small group environment, creates a safe space for biblical and practical learning experiences. 

If you are looking for a place to connect at Wheaton Bible Church, Rooted is for you. We believe Rooted is a way to practically live out our church's mission to Love God, Grow Together, and Reach the World.

Rooted groups consist of five to fifteen people who meet together each week for ten weeks followed by a Celebration Dinner. In addition to the group's ten weekly gatherings, there are two additional "experiences" which are designed to draw you closer to God and connect you to the purpose for which God created you.

What happens after Rooted?

Rooted, your first step into community, lays the foundation for how our groups pursue the mission of our church—so your experience doesn't end with Rooted. After Rooted, most groups will continue together as a Life Group. Or, if you would like to connect with a new group of people who has also been through Rooted, we are happy to assist you.

For more information about Rooted, Life Groups, or how to get connected into community, contact Rhonda Ford, Community Life Coordinator.
