First Christian Church presents......

"The Story." The introduction will be October 4th and 5th with book delivery following the worship. "The Beginning" will take place in worship October 11th and 12th. While it's true that each week is self-contained and does not depend on the other, so that you won't be lost if you have to miss a week or two, why would you? This is the most exciting thing we've done in a long time AND by the end of THE STORY, you'll have a much better understanding of the Bible.
