Why Tell Stories?

We tell stories to speak the truth about the way things are and proclaim the gospel. God is reconciling all things back to Himself, and stories help tell this greater story. They testify to who God is and what He has done and is doing in Christ, reaching past mere intellect to stir and shape our affections.

The gospel of Jesus Christ transforms hearts and lives. It may be seemingly radical, like Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus, or it may be a slow, gradual awakening. Whatever the case, it’s always miraculous and amazing that God would save sinners like us.

Stories Team

We tell stories through the help of our volunteer team. These volunteers serve through photography, videography, writing, editing and other areas. Our Stories volunteer team allows us to encourage and empower the artists and creatives within our church by giving them opportunities to serve the body with their various gift sets.
