Why is the Church Important?


Week 10 - Why is the Church important?

Please take a few short minutes to watch the Week 10 Training Video and Prophetic Prayer.

Speaking Truth into Each Other

As we approach the final Celebration on week 10, remember this is an opportunity to point out all that you’ve seen God doing in the life of each person in your group. Do that through a personal card and/or verbally in your group time. Encourage your group to point out the individual giftings, character strengths, and passions worth pursuing in their lives.

For example:

  • “I’ve noticed you’re super compassionate, especially when it comes to the racial tension in our city. You should get involved serving at with our Impact team.”
  • “You have no idea how much people look up to you. Embrace the leadership opportunities God is calling you to right now.”
  • “I know it’s been tough to forgive yourself, but know that God sees beyond those decisions. He loves you unconditionally and is building something beautiful in you. I’d encourage you to continue to let him replace those ideas you have about yourself with the ones God is says about who you are now. Let Him break down those strongholds.”

Allow each person time and space to talk about what the ROOTED Experience has meant to them and then have your group speak these kinds of truths and encouragement into each other’s lives. Then, have someone (or yourself) pray over that person. Use your discretion and your Facilitators Guide to think through what this looks like.


What’s Next?

Finish the conversation surrounding what’s next with your group. This needs to be a unanimous decision. Don’t keep going for another month or season reluctantly.  If you decide to continue as a life group, we recommend that the next study might be "Christ at the Door" ( See framework for reference) Make sure you communicate to your Corps Officer on your decision.

Preparing for the Celebration

You've made it! 10 weeks of learning and sharing together - of growing in your faith through your own life experiences and the wonderful things God has done in your life.  Remember that the Celebration is not a public meeting, nor a recognition during the Sunday morning service, but a time to share in a nice meal and fellowship in recognition of their Commission as Ministers of the Gospel.

Some things to remember:

  • Send a text or email to your group beforehand and prepare your group to think through one or two encouraging truths they want to share with each person in their group.
  • Maybe encourage them to think of a word, a phrase, quality, or a passion that comes to mind when they think about each individual in their group.
  • Cardboard Testimonies
  • At the Celebration, we will be highlighting some stories from this season of Rooted.

We’re asking every group to submit 1-2 group members that might be willing to share their stories. Email with their name, email, and Corps. We will contact and coordinate with them about what this will look like.
