One Week Till Deeply Rooted!

Deeply rooted starts one week from today! We are busy putting the final touches on all the things. We can’t wait to see you there! We have been praying that the Lord would nudge women who need to be here, especially those feeling lonely, discouraged, stuck, or lost. Also, women who are experiencing a Holy Spirit kick inside and want to keep the flame lit. 

We’re so excited about the speaker lineup, workshops, and our first-ever bookstore! We have a number of sponsors this year, including Paraclete Press, Loyola Press, InterVarsity Press, Grrr Records, Jesus People USA, Wilson Abbey, and Everybody’s Coffee! (If you haven’t attended before, EC is connected to Wilson Abbey! We also serve their signature roast:) 

Every time we put on Deeply Rooted (this is our 5th year AND 9th Gathering) we feel moments of discouragement and defeat. We’ve had speaker cancellations, low registration, and budget challenges, as well as personal setbacks that have brought us low. 

We always remind ourselves that even if nobody shows we’ll just see it as a retreat for a small group with fantastic facilitators:) The truth is we just love to bring women together for celebration, worship, food, and fellowship and if we can be challenged and inspired along the way, even better! 

Please don’t let finances be the reason you don’t come. 

We’ve made it accessible for every budget (even NO budget!) You can stay overnight with us for free. You can come for the whole thing or just Friday or Saturday. Or for a few hours. You can pay at the door. We are totally flexible and want to make it work for whatever stage of life you’re in! Nursing babies and girls 13 and up are welcome!

Be the Center

Did you know that 3 bands are represented in our worship team? Hilde Bialach plays cello and sings for The Crossing, Brach Siemens plays guitar in The Unfortunate, Ed Bialach plays drums for Glenn Kaiser Band and The Unfortunate, and Glenn Kaiser is, of course, the vocalist and guitarist for GKB. Here is a little taste of what you’re going to experience tomorrow.

The Work of Their Hands

Our designers are hard at work on the banners for our Saturday night gathering. We are so thankful for talented, gifted, skilled visionaries who can take some ideas and images and create an EXPERIENCE. It’s going to be beautiful and memorable. ‪#‎getdeeplyrooted‬ ‪#‎deeplyrootedchicago‬
