This three-week series has a compact theme: what is the purpose of the local church? By calling out the selfish deceitfulness of consumerism, this sermon set defines what church is supposed to be, and declares what it is not. The church is a place to serve, to be connected, and to live on mission for God’s kingdom. ‘We Are’ is designed for youth groups, and will help students understand both their place in the local church and the local church’s place in the world. Equivalent to We Are the Church (adult) and We Are the Church (children).
