God’s Story is Our Story: Genesis to Jesus
As we journey through the bible this year to experience the grand Story of God’s love, we invite you to form small reading groups to read, listen, and watch the story unfold.
These 3 keys will unlock the grand love story of God and help you stay engaged.
1) Reading for the Grand Story
Who doesn’t love a good story?
In fact, our brains are wired for story.
That’s why we’ve handpicked a reading plan from the YouVersion bible app that is organized specifically to help us discover God’s grand plot line from Creation to Jesus. We are NOT trying to read every single word of the bible.
2) Read, Listen, Watch
Do you enjoy listening to a great storyteller instead of reading on your own? We recommend listening the New Living Translation audio bible on the Bible App. The dramatic narrator is sure to draw you into the story. The plan we’re following is also peppered with Bible Project videos to help you get a visual grasp of the unfolding plot.
3) Read in Community
Keeping up a habit is so much easier when you’re doing it with a few other people. So, join a reading group and share insights with each other right inside the the Bible App reading plan we’re using.
