Digging Deeper into The Story

Welcome to The Story!  It is God's Story and we are finding out how we fit into it this year.  Whether you've been studying the scriptures for a lifetime or you're brand new, this story is for you! Why?  Because it is the real story of how everything began and how we got to the way we are!  Read a chapter of THE STORY each week and think about God's grand plan of redemption and how we fit in.
