ROOTZ is the ministry to middle and high school students at Lynn Garden Baptist Church.

"Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness."

Colossians 2:7

A Note from Andy

Hey guys!

As I'm writing this, today is the first day of Fall! I love this time of year as the weather cools, football is in full swing, and we have apple/pumpkin everything. (Yeah, I'm one of those people....)

I want to mention how grateful I am for how you mentor our elementary kiddos at church. I don't know if you fully realize the impact you make on them, but I see it and God sees it. With our numbers at J.A.M. right now (Which are amazing and I praise God for!), your relationships with the younger kiddos really helps us make sure they are coming to know Jesus and growing closer to Him. I know and recognize that you guys need your time as a youth group of worship and Bible Study, and know that we want to guard that time for you.

Guys - I am SO excited about October and November at church! PLEASE BE PRAYING DAILY ABOUT THE YOUTH LED REVIVAL COMING UP IN NOVEMBER! I'm excited to have Pastor Glenn joining us to bring a message each evening. We will worship together and have a time for you to share each evening as you feel led before the message. Let me know how you would like to be involved and any other ideas you have for the revival!

Love you guys!

Andy W.
