NEXT SUNDAY, JANUARY 8, 2012
The Story is a condensed version of the Bible in chronological order.
In its 31 chapters, you are led through the story of God who always
calls his people back to himself. Next Sunday Pastor Rick will begin a
series of messages from The Story. Included in this study will be not
only the Sunday messages, but devotional studies, music, and DVD’s
featuring Randy Frazee.
You will also have two opportunities to discuss the Chapters of
The Story on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm. Rev. Scott Crane and
Pastor Rick will lead these studies entitled “CONNECT THE D.O.T.S
(Disciples of The Story)”. You will also be able to study the chapters
in your own devotions using the study questions provided.
So join us starting next Sunday as we immerse ourselves into a year
of putting ourselves in God’s Story.
