Message Summary: The early church understood that transformation doesn’t just happen in the alone. It’s important for us to be connected to a community. In order to experience growth in community and effectively talk to others about Jesus we need to be growing our foundation. We need to “grow roots to show fruit.”
Student Involvement: Students made up the band, ran audio, propresenter, guest check-in, and student check-in.
Fun Stuff/Special Elements: We began our message by utilizing our table groups to create playing card castles. The table that could create the tallest card castle won. The illustration pointed to the need for a strong foundation. We launched our sign-ups for CrossWalk University.
