The Story of Jesus campaign is a seven-week exploration into the life and ministry of Jesus that is adapted from the original The Story campaign. This whole church campaign gives children, teens, and adults alike the opportunity to learn, discuss, and apply Jesus’ life, work, and teaching.
To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God's story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural.
Bestselling author Max Lucado also adds some introductory insights.
Through the seven weeks of the campaign, The Story of Jesus will open the eyes of your congregation to the culmination of God's master-plan as it unfolds in the life of Jesus, and how their stories intersect with it.
The Story of Jesus Church Campaign Kit provides all the tools you need to draw your congregation, your small group, and your family into the grand, unfolding story of Jesus as one sweeping narrative, from his birth to establishing his church.
