Rooted Chicago exists to encourage, connect and mobilize women of all
seasons as we fully pursue God in our circumstances.
"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ" (Ephesians 3:17-18). In obedience to this charge, we gather as a community to encourage, equip, and challenge one another to action. Regardless of our season or circumstance, we believe God is reflected in the uniqueness of our own designs.
Together we celebrate who we are in Christ and in that same spirit we challenge one another to shed pretenses, false identities, insecurities, and all else that crowds our soil and prevents our roots from driving deeper into His truth. As we crave more of the fullness of God, we are encouraged to grow and connect to the momentum of God moving in our city and beyond.
We believe that God designed us for one purpose - to reflect His image in all we are, say, and do. Therefore, we need fewer; fewer distractions, fewer agendas, fewer commitments.
We believe that having fewer leads to a deeper relationship with God, ourselves, and others. As we shed the excess we are able to dive into the depths of God's all-consuming love for us.
We believe that deeper leads to knowledge that is grounded in truth. A life that is grounded is not stationary; but is activated by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit to change individuals, communities and even the world.
