GET INVOLVED. GET CONNECTED.
GET TO KNOW NEW HOPE
If you're looking to learn more about the DNA of New Hope while connecting with some of the leaders in the church, this is where to get plugged in. At Get to Know New Hope you will learn about our beliefs, mission, and values. The meeting is led by at least one of the elders or staff at the church, giving you a chance to ask any questions you might have. There will also be other elders and pastors present for you talk with if you would like.
Rooted is the primary pathway for getting involved in the ministries at New Hope Christian Church. The goal of Rooted is to combine learning about Jesus with living like Jesus, so that we experience more fully what it means to follow Jesus. When you complete this 10 week experience, you will realize the profound change Jesus wants to make in our lives, further preparing you for the life He is calling you towards.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We at New Hope Christian Church are committed to leading people in "Pursuing God for the benefit of others; Being the church wherever we do life." Rooted is designed to help you become rooted in your faith and live out the “7 Rhythms of Rooted” – daily devotion, serving the community, sacrificial generosity, freedom from strongholds, prayer, sharing your story, and celebration!
Who is ROOTED for?
One of the most powerful aspects of ROOTED is that it is for everyone! No matter where you are on your faith journey, those who are just starting out and those who have been following Jesus a long time can join together in the ROOTED experience. ROOTED is a set of facilitated discussions and experiences within a group designed to empower you to personally discover and become ROOTED in your personal faith!
What is a normal group size in ROOTED?
You can expect 5-10 people in a normal ROOTED group. The size of the group often determines how much an individual can participate in discussions, and we want to be intentional about creating the best environment for individual growth in a group environment.
Can my existing group attend ROOTED together?
Yes! An existing group may continue meeting at their own time/location, as long as they attend the large group gatherings on Weeks 1 and 8 and the ROOTED Celebration at the end. If the leader of the group is not a ROOTED graduate yet, they may participate as a ROOTED group member, and a ROOTED Facilitator will be provided. It is our hope that every ROOTED group becomes an ongoing Go-Group, living out the seven Rhythms of Rooted.
Who can facilitate a ROOTED group?
ROOTED graduates who have completed the application and have been approved by the ROOTED pastor may facilitate a ROOTED group. Contact David Peterson (via the email option on our 'about/leadership' page) for more information.
Will there be childcare provided?
If needed, childcare is provided for groups meeting at New Hope if advance notice is given.
What time commitment is required?
ROOTED is a 10-week journey plus a Celebration! Because ROOTED is a holistic journey, the ROOTED participant is asked to commit to at least 8 out of 10 sessions. There is also an additional Prayer Experience and a Service Experience. If you are unable to make this commitment, we simply ask that you come join us the next RoOOTED season you have available! More questions? Give us a call at 641.752.1612.
Is there a cost to ROOTED?
The entire ROOTED experience costs $20 per individual (that’s $2/week which covers the materials cost).
How often will ROOTED be offered?
ROOTED will be offered two times a year beginning in the Fall (September) and Winter (January).
