Series Name: Roots
Message Date: Aug 15, 2021

Series Summary:
Roots. Every bush, tree, and plant we see above ground has powerful roots underground. They anchor them, nourish them, and give them life. And the same is true of the Church. In this series we’re going back to the book of Acts, the roots of the church, to glean life and strength for our lives today.

Message Title:
The Message and the Method

Message Summary:
While so much has changed over the past 2,000 years, some things are still the same. The message of the gospel, the good news of Jesus, has not changed. Neither has how God wants to get that message out to the rest of the world. While so much has changed, the message and method remain the same.
