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 -


A lot of folks see you guys as the "church of tomorrow," but you are the CHURCH OF TODAY. This month, there are several opportunities for us to "do church"! Be sure to read the calendar below as we have several special services that youth will be attending in November. You guys are leaders now and my prayer is that you will continue to grow as leaders in your walk with Christ!


Love you guys!


Andy W.

      Fall Revival Verse

      Sow for yourselves righteousness;
      Reap in mercy;
      Break up your fallow ground,
      For it is time to seek the Lord,
      Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.


      Hosea 10:12
