Developed by Jacob Armstrong, founding pastor of Providence UMC in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, The God Story is a toolkit with all you need to create and customize a seven-week sermon series to help congregants see the threads that run throughout the story of God’s people culminating in Jesus and the resurrection.
The series uses classic components of story to help people see their place and role in God’s story.
Week 1: Introduction Week 2: Suspension of Disbelief Week 3: Rising Action Week 4: The Inciting Incident Week 5: Soundtrack Week 6: Waiting for Resolution Week 7: Twist Ending
The series is based on The God Story, a devotional book that brings the whole congregation together in reading and prayer daily. The weekly introductions and reading form content for small group study. The toolkit includes a flash drive containing sermon outlines, a video trailer, professionally constructed PowerPoint graphics, promotional art, and a small group leader guide for discussion in Sunday school or house groups.
