Our emphasis at the beginning is to build a community that embraces everyone's story. We believe every person's story is unique, special, and should be told. Something beautiful happens when we share stories with one another. Fast friendships are developed and the community is deepened. This special experience is what we call STORIED.
Why another church?
This is a question we get a lot. Simply put we feel called to this work and to plant a new faith community in Mebane. We are not in competition with other local churches and we hope that our work will be shared together. We are ALL striving to respond to the call that God has placed on our lives. And our hope is that Storied Church will make our community and world better.
Where will you be located?
Our praxis in planting a church is to first create community connections and build trust before we begin to think about our location. Our first location will be meeting in other people's homes and virtually as a part of our small groups (Tov Communities). Our gatherings are somewhat nomadic during COVID we meet online and in-person at Holt Street Park.
Who is starting the church?
We are a part of the United Methodist New Faith Communities here in North Carolina.
How can I get involved?
There are so many ways to get involved. The first way is to set up a time to meet with someone from our community and see where your gifts might be best utilized. Connect here.
When will the church launch?
No doubt things have changed during COVID. We are focusing on building community and relationships that might blossom this community.
Do we have to be Methodist to join the team?
The simple answer is no. Our first core value is to "Embrace Everybody". Our heritage, praxis, and theology are distinctively Wesleyan. That being said we want to be a church that is open to everyone's faith background. Here is a link to know more about Methodism and our beliefs.
