The Story is the story of the Bible condensed into 31 topics. It allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. Like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption – and this story is true!
Highland began this biblical adventure on Sunday, August 29, taking a break during Advent and Christmas, and will complete The Story in May 2022. The Spiritual Nurture team has organized a varied schedule of small groups for study, discussion, and fellowship that will coincide with the weekly topics. Come discover with us – the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens through our prayers and study of God’s Word – The Story.
Upcoming Sermon and Reading: Chapter 16 (Jan. 23)
