This four-week message series connects the dots for teenagers regarding their role in unifying the body of Christ. As young people study teachings from a rich, diverse section of the New Testament, they’ll evaluate their role in various communities. These captivating messages make the point for you.
As teenagers experience Jesus’ teachings about community the way he intended, they’ll reach beyond themselves to become part of something larger. This series involves teenagers by encouraging them to take action, leave behind their phones and devices, and become part of the larger mission in their community and church.
