The Story

The Story is a comprehensive look at the Bible that begins in September 2014 and continues through April 2015. Through weekend worship, reading and studying, we hope to see God doing big things in us and through us as a church as we take this Bible journey together!

The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps people understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily.
