Newsletter for the Week of March 11th

Pastor’s Piece
This week we’re beginning a new sermon series called, “The God Story.”  Because of what I read in the Bible, I believe that I am indeed a part of a greater story. It’s a story with good guys and bad guys, adventure and romance, intrigue and suspense.  I am a part of the God Story and you are too. 

It can be easy to look at the Bible as a haphazard collection of sixty-six books from different eras, different regimes, and different authors, written with different intents. It can be equally easy to see our fragmented lives as a haphazard collection of events with little to nothing holding it all together. Neither one of these vantage points is accurate. 

I believe our lives change when we see the threads that run through the great story of God’s people found in the Bible, and when we see our lives as a continuation of that story. If there is something in you that says where you are right now is not how the story is supposed to end, then you need to hear the God Story. 

This week we’ll be looking at the introduction to God’s story, which reads, “In the beginning God.”  Join us this Sunday at 9:30 AM, and invite a friend!  
Blessings,
Pastor Andy
