Connect Groups


It is our goal to have every member of our church involved in a group because we truly believe doing life together is the way God designed us live.  When you’re in a group you have people who know you, care about you, and help you grow in both friendships and faith.



The Rooted experience redefines how people live life and view their relationship with God and others, giving context to what it means to be a part of something bigger. You will begin to see God in new ways, allowing you to experience a different way of life: community, authenticity, and generosity.


SEP-NOV • 5:30-7:30, Willamette Church (w/hopecity Leaders)


SEP-NOV• 6:30-8:00, Milwaukie Christian (w/hopecity Leaders)

Rooted is an interactive experience. In the course of 10 weeks, you will get together weekly with your group to talk about what God has been revealing to you.

As you go through the week’s readings, journal entries, and prayer. You will also learn from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage and guide each member.

Your group will share three experiences together outside of your group time: prayer, serving, and sharing your story. After the last session, you’ll join together with other groups and celebrate how God is working to connect each of you with your passion, your purpose, and your community.


How do I register and what does it cost?

Registration is easy! Drop your sign up card in a bucket, sign up at the info center, or go to our hopecity App.

The cost is $50/person to go through the course which includes all sessions, your workbook and other materials, and our Celebration Dinner at the end. This breaks down to only $5 per week!

Where will my Rooted group meet?

All of our Rooted groups meet either at Willamette Church on Sundays (West Linn) or Milwaukie Christian on Tuesday nights (Milwaukie).

Will there be food provided during the weekly gatherings?

On Tuesdays, we encourage everyone to bring a snack to share.  The Rooted team will provide plates, cups, napkins, etc.

The Rooted team will not be providing food for the Willamette gatherings. This is with the exception of the Celebration (during which you will be provided with a full dinner).

Is there childcare available?

Child care is available for children age 11 and under and is $30 a child for the full 10 weeks (or $3 a week per child!). This cost includes a healthy meal consisting of meats, cheeses, sandwiches, apples, carrots, and chips.  If your child has dietary restrictions and is not able to partake in this menu we would ask you to pack a dinner for him/her individually, of course, leave the peanuts/peanut butter at home.

Scholarships are available.

How will my Rooted group be chosen?

Our Rooted Team will prayerfully place people into groups. If you have a request to be with a certain person, please let us know upon registration.

What if I can’t make all ten weeks?

We realize that Rooted is a large time commitment, but we believe it is worth it. Due to this belief, if you know you are going to miss more than 2 of the 10 meetings, we ask that you wait to register for Rooted. The ten weeks are a cumulative experience and so we ask that every participant commits to honoring each other with being at every meeting.



Groups run in 10 week cycles (semesters), which allows you the option to switch groups according to your season of life.

  • Winter Semester: (Signups in January)
  • Spring Semester: (Signups in Early April)
  • Fall Semester: (Signups Early September)
