What is The Story?

An abridged, chronological Bible, written like a novel, which sweeps us into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation.  In it we will see two parallel and beautiful dramas unfold. 


There is the Upper Story.  God is real and present and working on our behalf.  Heaven is breaking into the world more than we recognize. The story of God’s seeking love, perpetual grace, and longing for relationship with ordinary people is breathtaking.


There is also the Lower Story.  We live on earth.  We make mistakes, run from God, and resist God’s overtures of love.  Sometimes we get so mired in the Lower Story that we fail to recognize God’s presence breaking into our world.


Beginning Sunday, September 19th, our church will embark on this 31-week journey through the Bible, from beginning to end.  Our children and youth, as well as several adult groups, will do the study to go along with the Bible readings.  The study is also great for individuals and families.  Sermon texts will come from what we read and study during the week.


A Bible and Study Guide set are available for $15.  Make a check to the church with The Story in the memo line or go on the website GIVE tab and choose Adult Education as the designation.  The sets are available in the office and on Sunday mornings.
