This semester's theme is Gather Around: The Stories Jesus Told

"While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable." Luke 8:4

 

The parables Jesus told are some of the best known and most influential stories in the world. Jesus was a master storyteller. His stories are creative, powerful, and engaging. These stories take the ordinary and make it unforgettable. They shock us, move us, motivate us and help transform our lives from the inside out. Let’s gather around this semester and listen to some of the stories Jesus told.

Luke 6:46-49 “Wise Builders”  

Luke 8:1-15 “Seeds and Soils”

Luke 10:25-37 “Neighbors”

 

Luke 12:13-21 "Rich Contentment"
