THE STORY NIV - $9:00
Why the Story?
The Bible is the best-selling book in history, but how many people in Reedsburg are actually reading it? A Gallup survey reports the average American household has four Bibles. However, research by Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life (2008) found that only 16 percent of Americans read the Bible every day.
The Story, is a great tool to increase Biblical literacy, helping readers understand God’s story from Genesis to Revelation and how their own stories intersect with God’s. Consisting of 31 chapters of carefully-selected scriptures sequenced in chronological order, The Story presents the word of God in an engaging format, reading like a novel.
Together with our use of the Narrative Lectionary for weekend worship and the use of age appropriate resources for educational programming for all ages, the entire church can be literally on the same page for 31 weeks. St. John plans to begin the experience on October 6th.
We would like to invite you to experience The Story. Open group studies will be held on Sundays at 9:15 AM and on Monday at 6:30 PM.
