In the series, The Chosen, Jesus tells the disciples to "Get used to different." I think we represented that sentiment well with a Christmas tree on stage last Sunday! it was a fun, wonderful way to kick off our Operation Christmas Child mission for 2020 and we hope hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. :)
On Sunday, we promoted two resources we think are more than worth your time, The Bible Project and The Chosen. I am adding the details in "This Weeks Three Things" section because you really need to check them out!
We hope to see you all this this Sunday for the next message in the Above All series, Grace.
1.) The Bible Project
The Bible Project is a nonprofit animation studio that produces short-form, fully animated Bible videos and other Bible resources to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. We create 100% free Bible videos, podcasts, and Bible resources to help people experience the story of the Bible.
From page one to the final word, we believe the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus. This diverse collection of ancient books overflows with wisdom for our modern world. As we let the biblical story speak for itself, we believe the message of Jesus will transform individuals and entire communities.
Many people have misunderstood the Bible as a collection of inspirational quotes or a divine instruction manual dropped from heaven. Most of us gravitate toward sections we enjoy while avoiding parts that are confusing or even disturbing.
Our Bible resources help people experience the Bible in a way that is approachable, engaging, and transformative. We do this by showcasing the literary art of the Scriptures and tracing the themes found in them from beginning to end. Rather than taking the stance of a specific tradition or denomination, we create materials to elevate the Bible for all people and draw our eyes to its unified message.
2.) The Chosen
The Chosen is the first multi-season television series about the life of Christ, as witnessed through the eyes of those He impacted. Directed by Dallas Jenkins and distributed by VidAngel Studios, The Chosen has grown to become the largest crowdfunded TV series of all time.
