The Story of Salvation Bible Study
For Benefactors, Friends, Alumni, & Parishioners - Recorded during Lent 2020
The world has lost its story.
Our secular age has lost its way. We don’t know where we came from, where we’re going, or why we’re here.
This Lent, join us as we dive deep into the one story that matters most: the story of salvation history. This is the story of God’s amazing love that has shaped the lives of countless saints throughout the centuries — and it has shaped our mission in FOCUS these last 23 years.
Invite your SEEK small group and others to join a Lenten small group while participating together in the FOCUS Lenten Bible Study on Salvation History presented by Curtis Martin and Dr. Edward Sri.
- Come away with the “Big Picture” of the Bible
- See the Catholic Faith in Scriupture
- Discover the role they play in the story
- Learn how to share the story with others
Join us. And let’s help give the world its story back.
