The Beginning of The Story - The Story Week 1

Today is the Beginning of The Story!   This series is one of the best ways to go through the Bible.   We'll be focusing on the events through history that make up God's story - the story told in the Bible by over 40 writers inspired by God to write down what they have learned for us so that we know what God has done, what he is doing, and where he is taking us.   Wouldn't you like to know what the God of the universe is up to?  Wouldn't you like to know how history, philosophy and religion all resolve?  You can know this, it's what the Bible tells us, from Genesis to Revelation.  You know what else?  You are invited to play a part of that story!

This series is based on a Bible reading plan called "The Story" and you can follow along with your own Bible or use the curriculum called the story.   The curriculum is excellent, so especially if you are new to reading the Bible, it's a great way to do it.  Most of it is just the NIV translation put in novel form so you can read it easily.   You can find it and more related curriculum on our resources page.

You can purchase it from Amazon.com at this link:  

Also, the reading plan is available on the free YouVersion Bible App by LifeChurch.tv or at Bible.com.   In the app or that website, you can subscribe for free to a "reading plan" called "Engaging God's Story" - that is the reading plan for The Story.   It will help you keep up every day.

Christianity didn’t start because people believed and liked the teachings of Jesus.  Christianity began because of something people saw –a resurrected man named Jesus.  Christianity is a faith that is founded on this event.  Want to know Jesus?  Start at the resurrection. 

Our sermon today is an Easter sermon from John 20, where we invite you to re-engage with Jesus.  

Some notes from the message:

A necessary definition:  

Untermensch |ˈo͝on(t)ərˌmen(t)SH|  - noun (plural Untermenschen |-ˌmenCHən| ) 
a person considered racially or socially inferior.
