Sunday Mornings at 9:30am
The Gospel Project
The Gospel Project for Adults takes the story of Jesus - the gospel - the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and points to one story that infuses Scripture from cover to cover - God's redemptive plan to rescue us from sin and death. Because the entire Bible points to Jesus it is important to examine the theology and mission within the text, as all of it is an important part of understanding the awesome depth and power of the gospel.
All of the children and youth will use the curriculum as well as one of our adult Sunday school classes. You can check out the website for more information: www.gospelproject.com

The Gospel Project - The STORY Begins
Teacher - Chris Buckley
For a story to be great it must include a great beginning. The story of the Bible, which tells the true story of our world, is no exception. Int the Book of Genesis, e see God the Creator in all His majesty and goodness as He spins the world into motion and lavishes His image-bearers with love. We have an "inciting incident" that introduces conflict into this good world, as the first humans raise their fists in defiance toward their loving Father and bring havoc into this peaceful paradise. But even here, we have a promise - God will make things right again. God will cover His people's sins and crush their adversary. The rest of Genesis shows how even though sin spread throughout the world, God remained faithful to His promise to Eve, His promise to Noah, and His promise to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph

Imagine walking into the middle of a movie. You would have a hard time figuring out what is going on. You would have questions. Who are the main characters? What is the plot? What is the real conflict? Where is it all headed? To make sense of these questions you have to go back and watch the movie from the beginning. In the same way, the Book of Genesis is critical in helping us understand who God is, why we were created and the purpose of life. Something deep inside us yearns to know where we have come from, where we are headed, and why we exist.
Genesis also clearly portrays for us the God of judgement and grace. Though we deserve eternal punishment and separation from God because of our sins, He makes a way through faith to be reunited to Him. Just as Abraham believed and was created with righteousness, today we can be part of the redeemed people of God through faith in Jesus! Through studying Genesis, we too can be moved to put our faith in the God who is always faithful to His promises!
