Immerse yourself in The Story!
“The Story” is an exciting church-wide experience based on a book that presents the Scriptures in compelling narratives. The book reads like a novel and pulls the reader into a chronological progression of the colorful and assorted Biblical characters and events. You may also follow along simply by reading the listed verses from the Bible that you already have at home.
As we step through the chapters together, we’ll take time in weekend worship, children, youth, adult education times and other opportunities to unpack each week’s Biblical teachings. We’ll increase our Biblical literacy as we discover together how our individual stories, and the stories recorded for us in Scripture, are part of God’s greater plan for salvation. Through our reading, we’ll also uncover what it means to be a disciple of Christ and how we can engage in sharing His story with others.

READ THE BOOK
Why has The Story sold over one million copies? Because it presents the Bible as one continuing story of God and His people – and that story is changing people’s lives.
Pick up your copy of The Story at church on September 5. Each week we will read one chapter together. Then we will focus on that chapter in the following Sunday’s sermon, Bible class teaching and Life Group discussion.
PARTICIPATE IN WORSHIP
Sunday worship services will focus on the biblical narrative from the previous week’s reading in The Story. The Scripture readings, the music and the prayers of the day will all reflect the same theme.
The pastor’s message in worship will help us understand how the week’s narrative reflects the theme of God’s love in Christ. He will then help us discover the difference God’s Story can make in our lives.
ATTEND BIBLE CLASS
Discussion-based Sunday morning Bible classes will help you further integrate God’s Story into yours. The lesson will be introduced in a large group; then we will split into small groups for discussion and prayer.
Children will learn the same lessons through fun, age-appropriate activities in Sunday School. And middle school and high school youth will grow in faith while discussing The Story with others of their own age.
