WHAT WE’RE TEACHING
 
We are reading “The Story” as part of a church-wide campaign to read through the Story Bible together.
Adults, youth and children are all looking at the same stories through an age-appropriate lens.
 
 

Sunday, September 8 we start “The Story”

What is “The Story”?
The Story takes a chronological look at scripture from Genesis to Revelation over the span of 31 weeks and is organised to read like a chapter book. But more importantly the story is accessible for everyone from young to old, from first time Bible readers, to longtime Sunday school attendees. This fall we will be going through “The Story” together.
 
How can you participate?

TIP OF THE MONTH
 
As the parent of two licensed teen drivers, drive time is now rare for my family. I miss it incredibly. Driving carpool was often when I learned the most about what was going on in the heads of my children and their friends. A few well placed questions was all it took to get them talking. If you have never tried to be intentional about drive time, ask a few open ended questions the next time you have them strapped in, and see were it leads. Asking, What is your favorite _________? is an easy place to start. You might be surprised by what you learn.
