This four-week message series helps teenagers understand why community is so important as they pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus. Reveal the special community-based characteristics of the very first Christians—and challenge them to consider how their own church community compares.
As your teenagers begin to experience the teachings about community they’ll discover how their individuality in Christ plays a key role in the larger, dynamic body of Christ. Teenagers will be encouraged to “think globally” and “act locally” in their church.
With LIVE Teaching Series, The Church, you’ll empower teenagers to see their larger mission at your church and in your community…
