Having just moved, I am well aware of the fact that most of us have “catch-all-drawers or closets” in our homes. We often tell ourselves some day we will sort through and organize that closet, that drawer, that crawl space, the attic or garage….but keep putting it off, as we continue to pile stuff into it.
My professor of the Hebrew Scriptures likened most Christians understanding of the Old Testament like our “catch all closet”—we know Noah and David and Moses are in there somewhere, but how it all comes together escapes us. Even in our understanding of our Christian Scriptures of the New Testament, we tend not to see the overarching story of God’s story. So beginning in September, we will be taking a 31 tour of Scripture chronologically to see God’s story of redemption from start to finish. The Series is called “The Story.”
THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD IS MORE THAN JUST A CLICHÉ. God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about: the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation.
We will be giving a copy of the Story to each family in the church on August 25 and September 1. We ask everyone to read the first chapter for September 8. If you would like a second copy for your family or as a gift to someone, you can order one through the church for $5 each.
Small groups will be studying through the Story as well as our Sunday morning worship service will be worshiping and preaching through the Story.
Join us as we hear God’s Story, join God’s story.
