Seamless - Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story by Angie Smith

In seven sessions, Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Whether you've grown up hearing Bible stories or you're exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming.

Experience the Bible as a whole as you gain clarity and confidence in your understanding of Scripture. Discover biblical context that reshapes and brings to life stories from the Old and New Testament.

Each week is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies. We will meet on Mondays from 7:00-8:00 pm in the lower level Lifetree Cafe area.
