One Story | One Savior

The Bible tells a single story and at the center of that Story is JESUS. Therefore, it is essential that we take a Christocentric approach to reading and interpreting Scripture. The below curriculum is designed to be covered in three years, one lesson per week with room for breaks. Although it was designed for our Sunday morning teaching hour, it is appropriate for individual use as well. The lessons are geared toward adults/teens with the intent that younger children would be taught by their parents/teacher at an age appropriate level. It is not an exhaustive study of every passage, but rather a look at key passages that move the Story of God forward.
