The Story

Join us for a Journey through The Story 
“The Bible is central to our faith,” but many people are intimidated by its scope and size. The Story gives us a way to journey from Genesis to Revelation together in 31 weeks so everyone understands God’s story and how their story intersects with it.

The Story is a unique program providing a multi-generational series for children, teen, and adult Sunday School along with corresponding sermons. When accompanied by reading through the five age-related books the entire church can be literally on the same page as we immerse ourselves in The Story

We would like to invite you to experience The Story with us. Sunday services start on Sunday September 7th at 10:31am. Invite a friend or two to join you and us on the journey through God’s story. (Adults begin The Story during Sunday School on Sept. 7th at 9:01am. Children begin Sept. 14th at 9:01am, and Teens Sept. 14th at 10:31am.)

The Bible is the best-selling book in history, but how many people in Walla Walla are actually reading it? A Gallup survey reports the average American household has four Bibles. However, research by Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life (2008) found that only 16 percent of Americans read the Bible every day. 

We are hoping to reverse this trend, starting with our own congregation and those we reach out to and invite to join us in learning God’s story. We believe that The Story, a best-seller, is the right tool to increase Biblical literacy, helping readers understand God’s story from Genesis to Revelation and how their own stories intersect with God’s. Consisting of 31 chapters of carefully selected scriptures sequenced in chronological order, The Story presents the word of God in an engaging format, reading like a novel. 

Copies of The Story are available for a suggested donation of $5.00 in teen and adult versions.
