What is The Story?

It’s a 31 week sermon series to help us to:  Connect to God, Connect to
People, and Connect to Serving.

The Story is a condensed chronological Bible, through which we are going to discover the upper story of God seeking relationship with mankind; and the lower story where our experiences are put into the context of God’s long range plan.

We pray that “The Story” will help you to connect to God by:

  • Understanding the basic story line of the Bible.
  • Understanding the upper story and lower story of the Bible.
  • Realizing how you can be a part of God’s ongoing story.
  • Understanding how God’s story has the power to change lives.

Why The Story?

  • Challenge #1 – The Story will help us to be in “The Word” Daily.
  • Challenge #2 – The Story will help us get involved with a LifeGroup.

Sunday Mornings – Seth Cain will preach an exciting message from the The Story.

Throughout the week – LifeGroups meet at coffee shops, homes, the
park, etc, to hold small group discussions about the weekly lessons from The Story.  Register to lead or join a group.
