Join us for a journey through The Story beginning Sept. 7th during the 10:30am worship service
And never let the Bible be intimidating again…
What is the Story and Who is For?
The Story is a version of the NIV Bible, arranged chronologically, that reads like a novel in 31 chapters. The Story is for everyone: adults, youth, and kids. It is made to make the Bible easy and fun to read whether you’ve read it before or not. There are reflection questions for each chapter to help you learn. Also to help people understand it better, all of our Sunday School classes for children and adults will study the same passages from Sunday morning worship that Pastor Eric preaches on.
How is First UMC using the Story?
Over 31 weeks (the 31 chapters) from September 7th through May 17th, we will explore one chapter a week in worship, sunday school, and small groups. Every family will receive one free copy of this book to participate in the series by reading 1 chapter a week (about 10-15 pages).
It’s really free for the book? Why?
The church is providing 1 book per family so that as many people as are interested can explore the Bible for themselves. It will also help people be prepared for Pastor Eric’s sermons each week.
To participate or receive more information, simply join us in worship, sign up for a discussion group at the church, or talk to Pastor Eric at 815-218-6217.
