Welcome to
Story Presbyterian Church

What to Expect

It is our hope that you feel welcomed, included, and relaxed. Each week Story Presbyterian Church worships God and hears relevant teaching from the Bible.

We're all about relationships

Life isn’t about who you know. It’s about who really knows you.

Life is an adventure. It’s painted with celebrated victories and littered with agonizing defeats. Regardless of the season we are in, we all need the love and support of friends. Your faith journey is both very personal and very social. Life is better together, so we work hard to be a place where you can expect to meet new friends who really love you.

We were Made to Worship

These are some of the songs that we sing at Story Presbyterian Church. These songs are the lyrics that flow from our hearts to our King. We sing because we love Him.

Story Kids

We want your children to feel welcome and a part of our church. Most importantly, we want them to know, trust and love Jesus Christ.

Story Kids services are geared toward infants through 5th graders. Before joining us for some fun in the "Kid Cove", families are encouraged to worship together in the sanctuary. Check-in for Story Kids will begin in the welcome area during the greeting portion of the service. Parents/guardians must have a working mobile phone on hand, in case of emergencies.

Common Questions

What generally happens during a service?

Worship is the act of seeing what God is worth and giving him what he’s worth. More than anything else in all of creation God is worthy of our worship. At Story Presbyterian Church we gather on Sundays to be reminded of the greatness, the goodness, and the love of God. And as a people, to corporately give our affections to God. We do this through singing, through giving, through teaching, and through communion.   While we sing feel free to join your voice with those of your neighbors, singing praises to God. If that’s not your thing its ok to just reflect on the music and the words being sung.

Am I expected to give money?

Since the beginning of time God has been on a mission to rescue and redeem his lost people and his broken creation. Although God doesn’t need any help in accomplishing his mission, he has invited us to partner with him on his mission of redemption. One of the ways that we partner with God is by giving back to him what he has already gifted to us. At some point in the service offering bags will go by, this is your opportunity to give back to God. Our greatest hope in every worship service is that you would encounter God and know his great love for you. If this part of the service is distracting to you for any reason at all please feel free to let the bag pass on by.

What is communion?

Scripture makes it clear: God comes to us. Today we don’t physically walk with God in the garden, as Adam and Eve did, we can’t feel Jesus’ wounds like Thomas did, but that doesn’t mean that God has stopped giving himself to us. Through the act of communion, by eating the bread and drinking the wine God spiritually gives himself and nourishes his people. Every week the pastor will extend an invitation to participate in this spiritual act. If for any reason you’re not ready to eat the bread and drink the wine consider participating with us by praying to God and by further reflecting on the words from the sermon during this time.
