“The Story” is coming to St John
Beginning Sunday, September 18th, our weekly worship services will focus on one chapter in The Story. Throughout each week, various classes and groups will meet to discuss the chapter. There will be many opportunities to get involved.
Everyone is encouraged to pick up a copy of The Story, which is an abridged version of the Bible (NIV) arranged in chronological order. We’ll ask for a suggested donation of $10 to cover the cost. We have numerous copies available in the office.
Start reading and come to worship! We’ll kick off September 18th and take one chapter a week taking short breaks for Reformation, All Saints Day, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost Sunday. The Story will extend into next summer as there are 31 chapters to discover.
To fully experience The Story, don’t miss a week. See you in church!
