One Big Story: Adults NOW AVAILABLE!
In everyday life, we are surrounded by stories. News stories. Online blogs. Posts. Tweets. Conversations. There are narratives woven throughout our lives. But all of those are part of a bigger story—God’s one big story. And this story tells of God’s big love throughout time.
This eight-session series provides an overview of the big story and leads your adult congregation through key narratives in the Bible to give them a glimpse of the story God has written, and is still writing today—and the role we play in it.
The One Big Story series can be used as a stand-alone series in your adult services, or as a church-wide event when used with the various age-appropriate versions of One Big Story that are currently available.
The One Big Story [Adults] product contains:
• 8 editable Communicator scripts (available in Word® doc format only)

Turn It Up CD
The collection of songs on this CD was written with God's "one Big Story" as a backdrop. We pray these songs will provide a soundtrack for what we think is the most important drama in history. It's HIS story, a bigger story of love and restoration that happens when Jesus sets up His kingdom in someone's heart.
We hope these songs will give you countless moments to dance, move, laugh, listen and celebrate God's bigger story in your family. So, go ahead... Turn It Up!
