The Journey

A year in the grand STORY of God

Everyone engaging Jesus through his Word. 

Through our Sunday teaching series, in groups, OR on your own, we're going on a journey through Scripture.  Our goal is that every member of our community join us on at least one of these three levels! (see below)  

  • Each week's Sunday message will walk us from Genesis to Revelation, and the major highlights of 66 amazing books
  • We are encouraging everyone to read through the entire Bible over 52 weeks using a weekly reading schedule
  • Finally, we've partnered with Bible Journey — a program through Gordon-Conwell Seminary's professors — to bring depth and context to the entire Bible.  

No matter which level you choose, we trust that this year will bring us closer as a church family and closer to the heart of God!

Study questions are posted Sundays at 8:50 AM.  Printable sermon list here »

From our Pastor for Smaller Communites:

We always encourage folks to gather in person or virtually to discuss the highlights of each week's sermon.  In this way, we intentionally go deeper - together and embrace a mindset that God's Word will be planted in us and nurtured to grow more.  If you are not discussing the sermon and its passage each week with others, then set aside time to explore the questions on your own!
