Steamboat briefs: Euzoa Bible Church will host 31-week Bible study
September 8, 2012
Euzoa Bible Church announced in a news release an innovative examination of the Bible in a series about God's story. The 31-week Bible study begins Sept. 9 and continues Sundays. Senior Pastor Chris McCombs will lead the study group.
The story is a chronological version of the Bible that includes selected verses to make the story of God more understandable and relevant to today's Western society. It is designed to make reading the Bible like reading a novel and involves action and suspense, according to the release. The program includes age-appropriate materials for children, youths and adults and helps enable discussion among families.
"Our stories are constantly changing and evolving as we grow and interact with others and God," McCombs was quoted in the release. "Likewise, God's story, which involves all of us, is constantly building and progressing. The story will create discussions and hopefully understanding of how our individual human lives can be a part of God's ever-progressing and ultimate plan."
