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:
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.

As a family of Christ’s disciples on mission to serve each other and our communities, we are learning, growing, and being empowered by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to the glory of God.
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.
