Fairfield Grace launches groundbreaking Bible Reading Campaign

“The Bible is central to our faith,” said Pastor Kun Sam Cho of Fairfield Grace,” but many people are intimidated by its scope and size. THE STORY gives us a way to journey from Genesis to Revelation together in 31 weeks so everyone understands God’s story and how their story intersects with it.”


The Bible is the best-selling book in history, but how many people in Fairfield are actually reading it? A Gallup survey reports the average American household has four Bibles. However, research by Pew Forum on Religion and Public life (2008 ) found that only 16% of Americans read the Bible every day.

Fairfield Grace is hoping to reverse this trend starting with its own congregation. Pastor Cho believes that THE STORY, a Zondervan best-seller, is the right tool to increase Bible literacy, helping readers understand God’s message from Genesis to Revelation and how their stories intersect with God’s. Consisting of 31 chapters sequenced in chronological order, THE STORY presents the word of God in an engaging format, reading like a novel.

“I want the people in my congregation, as well as the community to realize the incredible love God has for them and how their story is found in His story,” said Pastor Cho.

THE STORY Church Campaign is a unique program providing up to 31 weeks of curriculum for children, teen and adult Sunday School and up to 31 weeks of corresponding sermons. When accompanied by reading through the age-related books (THE STORY, THE STORY: Teen Edition, THE STORY for Children,) the entire church can be literally on the same page for 31 weeks. Fairfield Grace plans to begin this experience.

Fairfield Grace would like to extend an open invitation to all members of the surrounding communities to come and experience THE STORY with us. We have a variety of weekly discussion groups open to everyone.

Please join us at Fairfield Grace, Oct. 4 as we begin our journey together!

Copies of THE STORY are available at our church office. Fairfield Grace is located at 1089 Fairfield Woods Road, Fairfield. For more information, call 203-374-6528 or visit fairfieldgraceumc.org.
