The Story is built around 31 thematic chapters in chronological order. Each chapter contains word-for-word sections of the NIV Scripture along with just enough exposition to seamlessly tie the Bible together – from Genesis to Revelation. In other words, it is a journey through the Bible in 31 sessions. Members read one chapter at a time which is them discussed in Sunday morning Bible class. Timelines, maps, charts, character sketches, and discussion questions will help weave the thread from the beginning to the end of the Bible. Nothing intimidating, no deep theology, dry history, or embarrassing questions to answer. Classes will vary in approach with small group discussions as well as whole group input.
And to bring this event to the entire congregation, our Sunday School and Teen Bible Class will be following the same 31 sessions at the same time as the adults. What a unique approach to have all our members taking the same spiritual journey at the same time. (We will even provide babysitting for families with children age 3 and younger.)
THE STORY WILL BEGIN ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2019, AND CONTINUE THROUGH MAY, 2020.
