HIS Story

Weekly Teaching
Sundays at 10:00 am in the Hall Life Center

Welcome to a year-long adventure in which we, as a Parish, will read and study much of the Bible together. Our very successful Sunday morning adult Bible classes have studied many books of the Bible, usually a chapter at a time. However, many of you have asked for a comprehensive overview of the entire Bible, something we did many years ago in our "Bible in 180 Days" program, but which we are now expanding using our existing 10:00 am Sunday morning teaching/small group format to cover most of the Bible in 365 days! We will not cover every book (those of you wanting a verse by verse exegesis of Nahum will be disappointed...). But we will do everything in our power to make sure that you are well-grounded in the Bible, its enduring message, and its great themes.

HIS Story overview

HIS Story is a 50-week, chronological study of the Bible that allows us to examine and understand God's whole story in the order in which events actually occurred. The plan is one short passage (about a chapter) each day for the year! Every day, we will send out an email with that day's Bible reading. On Sunday morning, one of our teachers will review and give deep background information on the week's readings. We will then break into small groups for discussion. We'll help you find a small group if you haven't already joined one! The teachings will be recorded and you will be able to hear them through our website or by subscribing to the HIS Story podcast. We will also give out a book of overviews, charts, maps, and timelines to help us understand the historical context, relationships between nations, and more.
