God’s Grand Story

Experience the Bible as one grand redemptive story through storytelling and dialogue.

Throughout human history the power of a well told story gave communities their foundation and basis for belief. Jewish and Christian people learned and experienced God through story. ReaLife Philadelphia Communities interact with the biblical narrative through stories as one of our primary ways of teaching and engaging God’s Word.  We interact with these stories as a way to understand, experience and connect with God through his Word in community.

At ReaLife Philadelphia, we use the Story in a variety of methods:

Story-Formed Way

A ten week experience of the Story for Missional Communities focused on laying the initial foundation for discipleship—both for those who already believe the gospel and those who are investigating it.  This is the version of the Story we use most often.

The Story of God

The original version of the Story consists of twenty-two narratives which shows the redemptive arc of Bible that climaxes in Jesus.

The Story of God for Kids

The Story of God edited for elementary school aged children. Many of us use this with our kids at home and we’ve used it in Missional Communities and Sunday gatherings as well.

Connect With Us On Social Media

ReaLife Philadelphia exists so that every man, woman, and child in the greater Philadelphia region can have repeated opportunities to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

MISSIONAL COMMUNITY

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis
