As an elementary child, every semester I would order 4-6 paperback books from the school's book club. The moment they arrived I would tear into them and would read the first and last chapter of each book. That would determine which book I would completely read first. That system didn't work to well for me in college. But there is something about the first and last chapter of a book. The same is true of the Bible.
Normally things that have a beginning have an end. This is also true of the story we're about to embark on. What God began in Genesis 1 with the creations of the heavens and earth will end once we get to Revelation 21. What we know of creation will be destroyed and God starts another story with a new heaven and a new earth. But in between the beginning and the end is this incredible long story of redemption. And the subject and focus of this story is God Himself. From start to finish, His power and goodness are on display so that we are captivated by who He is. From start to finish...by HIS grace for HIS glory! Come join us each Sunday morning as we take this year long journey through the books of Genesis and Revelation.

It will include smoked meat, Cajon food, card games, the Super Bowl game & commercials (if you want to watch) and much more. We will be replacing Katy Perry's half-time entertainment with "Tommy's Story". This will be a laid back event that will be catered toward what guys like to do.
