Getting to the Heart of God's Story: Adult Curriculum (31 Sessions)
by Randy Frazee with Kevin & Sherry Harney
To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God's story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural. In 31 video sessions, The Story video curriculum will open your eyes to God's master-plan unfolding in the lives of the Bible's characters-and in your own life. Discover the heart of God's Upper Story, and the joy that comes as you align your story with God's. This DVD and participant's guide are designed for use by small groups, adult Sunday school, or adult education for each of the 31 weeks of The Story church-wide journey.

Big Red Tractor & The Little Village
by Francis Chan
The villagers loved the big, red tractor. It helped them grow enough food to get them through the year. But it was hard to use, and it didn't work very well. Even with everyone helping to push and pull the tractor, they couldn't get much done. Everyone believed that was just how things were. That is, until Farmer Dave discovered a long-lost book in a dusty attic. Could it really change everything? Farmer Dave thinks so. But the other villagers aren't so sure.
The Big Red Tractor & The Little Village is a contemporary parable sharing a timeless truth: God has a special purpose for you and you can fulfill it through the help of his Spirit. It's a powerful lesson perfectly told for little hearts.
