Gather a Group for Rooted in Hope


What better time to gather with friends than the weeks before Christmas? Take a few moments to pray together and support one another as you journey to Bethlehem. Talk with one another about what you're discovering in Rooted in Hope.

Not sure who to gather? Consider approaching you pastor and asking to host a group in your parish? Here is an info sheet to use to introduce Take Up & Read to your pastor. And here is a flyer for you to post where women gather:


Or maybe you just want to call a few friends and meet in a coffee shop or even at the playground while your children run off a little energy. That works, too, and we highly recommend it!

Not sure how to get things going once you’re gathered? We've made it easy with a group guide that has some tips for organizing and conducting group Bible studies, plus questions to get your conversation started, and more than a few recipes from the Take Up & Read team. 

Be sure to check out our Instagram archives for further group encouragement. And please feel free to ask questions and share tips with one another here!
