The Story


The Story is a condensed chronological NIV Bible. There are no verse references in the text, and the segments of scripture are woven together with transition text written to connect the storyline so it reads like a seamless story. The Story is a 31-week campaign that includes sermons, children’s programs, teen programs, Sunday morning classes, and families studying the same segments of the Bible in chronological sequence. It works best with a READ-HEAR-DISCUSS model. Participants of all ages READ a chapter in The Story during the week. On Sunday, they HEAR a sermon or Sunday School lesson based on the scripture segments from the same chapter in The Story. During the following week, participants have opportunities to DISCUSS the chapter with others and at home with their family.
