‘The Story’ being presented

Staff report

Swan Creek Community Church in Delta wants people to engage and understand how the Bible fits into God’s plan and story as it launches “The Story” Sunday, beginning Sunday, Jan. 15, at 10:30 a.m.

The Story, a Zondervan best-seller, is a tool to increase Biblical literacy, helping readers understand God’s story from Genesis to Revelation and how their own stories intersect. Consisting of 31 chapters of carefully-selected scriptures sequenced in chronological order, The Story presents the word of God in an engaging format, reading like a novel.

“I want the people in my congregation, as well as the Village of Delta and surrounding areas, to realize the incredible love God has for them and how their story is found in His story,” said Swan Creek Community Church Pastor Michael Mortensen. The Story presents the word of God in an engaging format, reading like a novel for lessons for children, teens, and adults.

Sunday’s presentation will be followed by a carry-in lunch. The community is invited.

The church is located at 812 Main St. in Delta. Sunday services start at 10:30 a.m.

“The Story” Church Campaign provides up to 31 weeks of curriculum for children, teens, and adults, and up to 31 weeks of corresponding messages. It can be accompanied by age-related books, the entire church can be literally on the same page for 31 weeks.

After the launch of The Story this Sunday, “we will have a carry-in lunch, where the community is warmly invited,” Mortensen shared.

With thousands of participating churches nationwide, The Story is becoming a movement that is bringing wide-ranging benefits to local churches. Many have reported increased community outreach, increased Biblical literacy, congregational growth and a greater understanding of how God’s story reveals the reasons for the things that happen in man’s story.

Swan Creek Community Church would like to invite you to experience The Story. Sunday services start at 10:30 a.m. For more information, visit www.swancreek.org.
