The Story is a chronological selection from the NIV Translation that highlights the broader narrative of the Bible in a way that everyone can engage with—from children to students to adults.
It is not too late to purchase a copy of The Story in the WestGate Worship Center lobby. The “Digging Deeper, Part 3” and “Family Activity” booklets are also available as guides for your daily personal and family study.
Furthermore, as we have re-launched from Chapter 22 on April 7, be sure not to miss the chance to join a Life Group as our community delves deeper into this incredible testament of God’s relationship with the world. Visit the “Life Groups” page for more information on how to get connected.
Student Ministries will be going through The Story along with the church body. We will be going through a video series during our time together and encouraging the students to read along in the book for application during service and our small group time.
The Story – Teen Edition
“The Greatest Story Ever Told” is more than just a cliché. God has gone to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story for Teens is all about—the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story for Teens sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accurate, and easy-to-understand text of the New International Version, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. And like any good story, it is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption.
We are committed to tooling and equipping our families so that you, as parents, can disciple your children at home. For this season, we have prepared a Family Activity Booklet of The Story that will be part of our resources for you this year. Families will receive one free copy of the Family Activity Booklet or you can also click here for the online version of the booklet. Since our time with your children is so limited it is our hope that these tools will enhance your journey through The Story and allow you to develop your own family’s story of faith.
The Story books are available for purchase for preschool/elementary children for $5.00 per book. These books are for your in-home Bible reading and correspond with your Family Activity Book. Elementary students are still encouraged to bring their Bible to church.
