Grow DEEP – Live TALL

Thriving churches are full of thriving people. Yet for things to thrive, especially in the desert, the roots must go deep. Longing for growth is natural. (What kid doesn’t want to be just a little taller?) But growing tall begins with growing deep. If you long to grow in your relationship with God and to sink your roots deeper in His kingdom, then we invite you to join us at Continental. We’re aiming to grow deeper this year!

Maybe you have noticed how Christians today are becoming shallow. Sure, we love Jesus, love church, love our Christian friends. But we stay pretty superficial, even with God. We sing our alleluias and say our amens; then we go home and live largely separate from God. The problem is we do not even realize how dry our roots are. We need to a new hunger for God’s word, a new commitment to His work, and new passion for prayer. No one can stand tall who has not planted his roots deep. We need to recover some depth to our Christianity, now more than ever.

KJV Psalm 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
