2023 - Year of Story

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. - Acts 1:8

Welcome to 2023: The Year of Story.

Our focus this year will be on learning and telling the Story of Jesus. A story that many of us have been learning and telling our entire lives. The Gospel Story of Jesus matters, though many of our neighbors here at home and around the world, have not experienced the Good News of Jesus. Those of us who know and live the Story of Jesus have a great opportunity before us to lovingly share the Story of Jesus.

Sent by the Crucified and Risen Jesus to

Make Disciples, Equip Leaders, Strengthen Parishes, and Nurture New Communities

for the Renewal of Northwestern Ohio and the World.

The Story of Jesus

What follows is a six-session Bible resource on the Story of Jesus. Open (or turn on) your Bible, gather with a group of friends, get outside the four walls of the congregation, to learn and share the Jesus story, to learn and share your story, and to learn and share the story of your community. But be careful. Be very, very careful, because the Story of Jesus has the power to transform us from who we are, into the people and communities that God longs for us to be. -Bishop Beaudoin
