The Story Church


 

SCROLL DOWN

The Story Church


 

 
 

Our hearts break for the broken lives and broken families in our community. While we recognize we cannot single-handedly "fix" our community, we believe we can be a catalyst for change by loving well the community where God has placed us. Just because we can’t do everything doesn’t mean we can’t do something.

About Story


About Story


OUR VISION

We are a collection of people with stories imprinted by brokenness and the redemption of Christ.                   

 

OUR MISSION

We are a community defined by movement; a people knowing, living and telling the love story of Jesus to the world.    

            

 

CHURCH IMPERATIVES                         

COMMUNITY – 

A Story of joining together in the love of Christ. 

 

FORMATION – 

A Story of growing together in the image of Christ. 

 

WORSHIP – 

A Story of standing together in awe of Christ. 

 

MISSION – 

A Story of serving together in the grace of Christ. 

 

Core Value: AUTHENTICITY - We value authenticity over image management; biblical community is built on honesty and transparency.

Core Value: RESTORATION – We value restoration over condemnation; He alone restores beauty to our broken stories.

Core Value: TRUTH – We value His truth over self-sufficiency; when truth is hidden in our hearts, worship is a natural expression.

Core Value: MOVEMENT- We value movement over locale; a people on mission, sent from one location.

 SUNDAYS 10:00 AM

 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

A relaxed atmosphere. If you are visiting for the first time we will not embarrass you, single you out, or ask you for money. We know that many people just want to visit and to see what church is like and we're okay with that. Wear what is comfortable for you because at Story Church it's not about what you look like or wear.

Sunday service will begin with coffee and a warm hello. Our musicians will play a few songs and you can sing along if you like. After singing we'll have a message of how God's STORY is relevant to your STORY. You will find that the message can apply to your life no matter where you are on your faith journey. 

Weekend services are one hour & 20 min long. Children's ministry is provided for families, as well.
