God Unboxed - Sunday Series

God Unboxed is a 5-week interactive presentation-style

series with video clips on God's attributes as revealed

inthe Bible and correcting common misconceptions

people have about who God is.  Six boxes contain items that represent ways that we can think of God.  The contents of each box are reviewed each week, and the teaching focuses on different aspects of God each week as well - God Who?(Trinity), Omni God, Heart of God, Standard of God, & Sovereignty). Students destroy the boxes on the last week because

God should not be kept in a box.  

This series helps students see the glory of God and that He's worthy of of our worship, trust, and obedience!  

DATES:  June 11 - July 9, 2017
