Blueprint Christ Established His Church About this Life Night This Life Night starts off the Life Teen semester, “Church,” and provides an overview of the origin of the Church and why it is necessary to our faith in Christ. A competition between small groups begins the Life Night. Small groups are challenged to build a model house that resembles a prototype that the small groups haven’t seen. This activity transitions into the Proclaim and is used to demonstrate how our human efforts to reach God fall short, but God’s plan provides us with a model house that is the Church, founded by Christ. The Break includes a small group discussion and the Send will provide teenagers with an opportunity to pray with Scripture and to journal. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to help teenagers understand Christ as the foundation of the Church. It will challenge them to make Christ the foundation of their own lives.
