‘The Story’ coming to county

Intrigue, drama, romance and conflict are all part of the mix coming to Nevada County in September in the “The Story” book and discussion groups.

Telling the narrative of the Bible in chronological order and in 21st century print and language, the “The Story” is all about God’s love for humanity.

Thirty-one chapters in hardback format include stories, poems and teachings and reads like a novel.

The book will give nonbelievers insight into the Bible that Christians claim as the basis for their faith. For Christians, “The Story” ties together familiar passages and the unfolding progression of God’s plan.

Weekly gatherings throughout the county to discuss the ideas in each chapter are being planned; some as book clubs and some as Bible study groups.

Book club groups will meet Tuesday evenings at Sierra Presbyterian Church with a simultaneous children’s program, and at Eskaton Lodge Monday afternoons.

Bible study groups will gather at various times in private homes. Participants in both style groups will read one chapter a week.

“The Story” has been presented throughout the United States by many different denominational churches. In Nevada County, Sierra Presbyterian Church is the sponsor.

For more information, to purchase “The Story,” or to join a book club or Bible study group, contact Sierra Presbyterian Church office at 530-265-3291 or go to http://www.sierrapres.com.

The Book Club will run for 31 weeks, every Tuesday, starting Sept. 9.
