"The Story"

On Sunday, September 8, we began the 31-week journey through "The Story" , a study of the stories of the Bible in chronological order. 

Adult Sunday School will be studying the companion series "The Heart of the Story" and the Youth Sunday School will study "The Story" in terms children can understand.  The Youth will have trading cards with Bible verses to memorize and fun activities to coordinate with the "The Story".

We began with "Creation - Life As We know It" (during worship) and "What's the Big Idea?" (in Adult Sunday School)
   In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
          Genesis 1:1

On Wednesday, September 11, there will be a Video Bible Study at 10:00 a.m.  (with coffee and doughnuts)

September 15  "God Builds a Nation"  and  "Birth of a Nation"
   I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.

September 22  "Joseph:  From Slave to Deputy Pharoah"  and  "I Dreamed a Dream"
  You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.
            Genesis 50:20  ESV

  Commemorate this day, the day you came out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, because the Lord brought you out of it with a mighty hand.

"The Story" Begins

On Sunday, September 8, we begin following "The Story".  The adventure will begin to be swept away into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation.  You will realize the Bible is a good novel filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance and redemption; all based on a true story!

Sunday School will resume for the school year on September 8th featuring "The Story" on a level that makes it easier for the children to understand and adults to enjoy.

Come, enjoy the adventure of "The Story"!
