The trees in a redwood forest have roots so intertwined, the entire forest acts as one giant tree.

These thousand-year-old trees have roots that spread out hundreds of feet in each direction. As the giants continue to grow taller, the roots grow into each other and actually start to connect. And likewise, as the roots become more connected, it allows the trees to continue reaching further into the sky.

As followers of Jesus, we’re no different. Our vertical relationship with God and our horizontal relationships with one another grow stronger the more inter-connected we become. As each relationship grows, it strengthens the other.
 
This year’s theme is Stronger. We are all stronger when we connect, with God and with others. We're going to explore that concept in our main sessions and workshops, with plenty of time for discussion and networking throughout the two days.
