The Story

Wednesday evening (6:00 – 7:30 PM)
Begins September 13
Facilitators:  Eleno & Leticia Torres
Room 164

This class takes a narrative approach to the whole of Scripture.  You will join a small group of people seeking to understand the big picture of God’s Word through reading, DVD presentations, and weekly discussions. The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative.  Come discover God as He reveals Himself through His Word. (Book cost: $5.00. Study Guide cost: $8.00. If needed, scholarships are available. Contact Lori at

Child Care is available for infants and toddlers and Children’s Ministry opportunities exist for children while parent or guardian attends this study.

What is true faith? How should you live the  Christian life? Each verse of this practical study of James is alive with instructions, admonition, and encouragement. Learn God’s principles for dealing with trials, temptations, the tongue, and the pull of the world.

Precepts uses an Inductive Study Method which is an investigative approach to the Bible using observation, interpretation, and application. Time spent observing Scripture to know what the Bible says and using sound principles of interpretation to understand what it means can result in a God-honoring and fulfilling life of Scripture application.
