Covid-19 and Gathering?
We invite all those who are vaccinated with the exception of children 5 and under (we ask the children 5-12 have had at least their first shot) who are unable at this time to join us for in-person worship. If you are not fully vaccinated or choose not to be we invite you to worship with us online. Plus we will continue to wear masks at all times.
Why do we gather?
We are a new church start so we are gathering to build community and relationships. And this is a good way for people to get to know our story and vision face to face.
What is the preaching like?
Our preaching style is diverse and approachable. Our belief is that no one person is the "theologian" but we are all theologians. We are scriptural, practical, and theological in no certain order. Each Sunday we might focus on one area or all three. We have a group of us that preach throughout the month and our style is diverse in how we approach scripture.
What is the music like?
Our music is simple. We sing a mix of modern worship songs and hymns. Singing for the church is a communal, responsive act that we do together. So we keep the music simple so that it might be more inclusive in our life together.
What do we do at these in-person gatherings?
The first part of our time together is a time to catch up, chat, drink some good coffee and get to know one another. During our gatherings, we sing songs, read scripture, hear a sermon, pray together, and take Holy Communion together.
Can I bring my children?
Yes!! We want the whole family to be there. We believe that it is so important that we do life together and that includes children of all ages. We believe that children are ultimately molded by their parent's faith journey. So we try to encourage children to be apart of our life journey as much as possible.
Do you have a children's ministry?
We are grateful for the many children and families that are a part of Storied Church! We believe in incorporating children into the life of the church as much as we can. We believe children are formed by their parents and elders engagement in worship and small group gatherings. We do have intentional activities for children during the sermon and invite them back in during Holy Communion. Currently, weather permitting, the children gather outdoors.
If you would prefer to have your child with you we would welcome it.
We are working towards offering a nursery space as we grow. Our current space is limited but in future spaces our hope is to have a nursery space for younger children.
Who can take communion?
Everyone. Babies. Followers of Jesus. Non-followers of Jesus. Doubter. Skeptics. Insert whatever into the blank. For us, communion is many things but for us, it is a reminder to continue to invite others to our tables and feast.
What do we wear?
Whatever you want. You be you.
Will there be a light show?
no just some good down to earth people.
