During the winter and spring of 2019, we continue a church-wide movement to better know and grow in God’s Word. Over 31 weeks, we are reading "The Story," a condensed chronological Bible that will equip all ages to discover a deeper appreciation of our spiritual roots and develop a solid foundation of Bible literacy.
There are a variety of ways to participate on Sunday mornings:
"The Story" in Worship
Sundays, 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Our sermons from September through May will follow the 31 chapters of "The Story."
The Rest of "The Story"
Sundays, 10-10:45 a.m. in Stone Hall
Explore how the Bible holds meaning in your life today through a weekly video summary and small group discussion. (For a brief presentation of the Biblical background to this week’s reading, come to Stone Hall at 9:30 a.m.)
"The Story" In Depth
Sundays, 9:30-10:45 a.m., Agencies Building Room 105

Community Bible Study
Thursdays, 7–9 p.m., Agencies 105
This 30-lesson in-depth study of Paul’s Letter to the Romans is undoubtedly Paul’s most important epistle, containing the most formal and systematic development of the doctrine of salvation—righteousness coming as a free gift from God, being received by faith alone.
