Rooted: An All-Church Discipleship Journey

In January 2023, Lake Avenue Church will launch a small-group discipleship program known as “Rooted.” Discipleship is at the very heart of Jesus’ ministry, and Pastor Mathew’s vision is that it will be the cornerstone of LAC. In a world that is crowded with discipleship programs, Rooted stands out for the dramatic change it has made in churches internationally.

Rooted is a transformational small-group experience where you will have the opportunity to deepen your connection with God, grow together in community and discover how to use your gifts and talents more fully for His Kingdom. The Rooted experience is designed to energize existing small groups, as well as provide a pathway to connect individuals to new groups.

Rooted involves a 10-week discipleship journey, a serious commitment that inspires questions and conversations that are designed to help you better understand God and His plan for you.  Together in a small group, you will study the Bible in daily devotions, engage in prayer and service experiences, share stories and practice the spiritual rhythms modeled by the early church in Acts 2.

Through the Rooted journey, you will begin to see God in new ways and hear His voice in surprising places. You’ll experience a different way of life as you connect with God, your small group members, the church, the community, and your purpose.

We encourage you to come with an open heart and see how God surprises you!

Groups are being formed now for the Winter/Spring Session, which will begin on Sunday, January 22, 2023. Registration opens Sunday, December 18, 2022. Click on the link below today if you would like to join a group.

Here is what a few Rooted Pilot Program participants had to say:

“Rooted is an amazing opportunity to unite our church in a deeper way. People who may have different views will get to know and love their brother and sister in Christ and experience that we are all in God’s family together.” — Esther Choe

“Rooted has encouraged my walk with God. It’s been helpful to study spiritual disciplines and put them into practice. Learning and growing within our small group has been a rich experience as we’ve shared on a deep level and encouraged one another.” — Carol Misakian
