In The Beginning

June 2, 2024 - June 23, 2024

This series begins our 18-month journey through the Bible with four worldview-shaping stories understood as “prehistory” or “protohistory” - Creation (Gen. 1-2), the Fall of Humanity (Gen. 3), the Great Flood (Gen. 6-9), and the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11). We’ll see how these stories help us find ourselves in God’s great story! We’ll also witness the repeating cycle of humanity’s failures followed by God’s faithful love. Resisting the urge of chronological pride (viewing early peoples as unintelligent, unscientific simpletons), we’ll enter the minds and complex literary styles of ancient writers to discover how these first stories point us to the Good News of Jesus!

    Where do you find your identity? What is your mission in life? We tend to find our identity in what we can build and our mission in our own causes. In the last of our four-week series, IN THE BEGINNING, we’ll arrive at the ancient “Tower of Babel.” We’ll discover that we tend to build moments to ourselves and huddle close together to play it safe, but God has a much bigger plan for our lives!

    Noah’s Ark is a story we often think we know well, but beneath the familiar children’s storybook surface lies a profound message about sin, judgment, and God’s love. This tale isn’t just about animals on a boat; it’s about understanding the seriousness of sin and the hope of rescue through God’s love. Noah’s obedience and faith led to salvation for him and his family, illustrating that God always provides a way out of our brokenness. This story reminds us that God offers a fresh start and calls us to live connected to Him, embracing His guidance and promises.

    The world seems to be falling apart all around us… and our personal struggles seem worse than ever. This doesn’t seem to be what God intended life to be like. In this second of our four-week series, IN THE BEGINNING, we’ll journey to the ancient Garden of Eden and discover how we are like Adam and Eve – crossing boundaries that lead to destruction, but thankfully, never outside God’s forgiving love.

    What wakes you up in the morning? What shapes your view of the day? Perhaps our days should begin where God’s story begins – with goodness and gratitude. In this first of our four-week series, IN THE BEGINNING, we see how the Creation Story in the book of Genesis reminds us that when the world seems out of order, we can trust in a God who makes all things good.
