Churchwide study: "THE STORY" Won't you join us for the most compelling story of all time:

the story of a true God who loves his children, who established for them a way of salvation and provided a route to eternity. Starting Sept 13th, and for the better part of a year, each Sunday we will engage the story & characters in each of the 31 chapters that reveals the God of grace — the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens; the God whose love for his people culminated in his sacrifice of Jesus, his only Son, to atone for the sins of humanity. We will also launch "The Story" Wed Night Bible Study on Sept 16th. The Story includes the actual, God-breathed words of the Bible. The 31 chapters that comprise The Story contain portions of Scripture that were thoughtfully and carefully excerpted and then placed in chronological order. The texts were chosen to retain the overall flow of the narrative, so that when you read this story, you will get a sense of the “big picture” of the Bible.
