THE BIGGER STORY
Journey with us through the Bible in a year

Beginning on Sunday, January 1, we will spend the year abiding in God‘s love as we take a sweeping look at the major themes in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation learning how all point to Jesus and

how God so loved the world that He gave His only Son...

Some view the Bible as a collection of smaller stories. However,  the holy, inspired and inerrant Bible is one book, by one author (God) with one story and one subject: Jesus Christ! Our Lord is in every book of the Bible. The entire Bible points to Christ. God has given us the Scriptures so that we might come to Him and know Him and love Him, as He first loved us. 

Join with us as we read through the Bible in the year 2023. Our Sunday Morning Bible Studies, Kids Classes, Youth Group and Men's Group will all journey through "The Bigger Story" together, seeing how Jesus was the plan from the start, "for God so loved the world." 

We encourage you to review the reading plan below, follow along and form or join discussion groups as we learn how all the Bible points to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

"We find Christ in all the Scriptures. In the Old Testament, He is predicted. In the Gospels, He is revealed.  In Acts, He is preached. In the epistles, He is explained. In Revelation, He is expected..." Alistair Begg
