Teacher’s Page Parent’s Page Daily Reading Study Guides

Sometimes we treat the Bible as if it were a list of rules and regulations.  Or maybe like a blueprint or schematic plan for building or running the church.  Or sometimes approach it like a mystery that must be discovered and decoded as if we were Indiana Jones.  But ultimately, the Bible is a story.  It is the story of God’s relentless love and His pursuit of His creation despite our rebellion and sin.  The Bible is the story of God redemption of humans through Jesus Christ and His cross.

In 2018, we will focus on “The Story.”  Our daily Bible reading, sermon series, Sunday school classes and small group studies from February to May and then from September to mid December will all focus on “The Story of the Bible.”  We will use “The Story,” an NIV condensed Bible that reads like a novel and focuses on the narrative or “story” parts of the Bible. A copy of the book “The Story” will be provided to each family (free!).  A  an slightly expanded reading will also be will provided in the bulletin and on this web site each week as well (also free).  So we’ll read, preach and teach the story of the Bible.

The teen, middle school and adult groups and we will meet together at the building at 5:00 beginning on February 11 (what a novel approach that is) and use a DVD lesson study series.  We’ll stay on the same basic schedule as the children’s and adult Bible classes and the sermon series, so this will give our families a chance to grill each other on how well they are listening.   Use the links above to check what your kids are studying, pick up study guides you missed, find the daily Bible readings.
