The Story Church in Comstock Park, MI exists to help people move from hearing the story of Christ to living out the gospel of Christ in their own lives.
We do this through teaching that is relevant to our lives today, yet is rooted in scripture.
Heart vs. Control | Kyle Kotrch
Jesus didn't leave anything to question when he talked about what we value most in our lives. He said that where we store our treasures is where our heart will be also. This means if we store up treasures in the world, our heart will remain in things of this world. As we begin this new series Pastor Kyle asks the simple yet incredibly challenging question of where are you looking for security and how does that manifest in where/how you store your treasures?
Laodicea | Kyle Kotrch
It's the final week of our series exploring the 7 churches in Revelation, and it's a challenging one! This week we look at Jesus' letter to Laodicea who He accuses of being lukewarm in their faith. Listen in as we dive into scripture and ask ourselves the question of where our own faith in Jesus may have become lukewarm.
Philadelphia | Kyle Kotrch
It's week 7, and we are deep into our series on Revelation, looking this week at the church in Philadelphia! Listen in as Pastor Kyle discusses how the church in Philadelphia shows us that Jesus is our only source of stability, and that when we draw near to Him he will provide us His strength when we have no strength left on our own.
Sardis | Kyle Kotrch
Sardis was a church that looked good from the outside. They were a fortified city, in a prominent position in society, and physically safe high up on top of a cliff... But the soul of the church didn't look the same way. Jesus criticism for the church of Sardis is that they have a reputation for being alive, but they are dead, but the glorious hope even for those in Sardis is that we serve a God who can take what was once dead and bring it back to life!
Thyatira | Kyle Kotrch
Thyatira is the smallest of the 7 churches in Revelation, yet it received the longest letter. Jesus had some very strong words for Thyatira, both commending them for their love and faithfulness and in no uncertain terms convicting them of the evil they were allowing in their midst. Listen in as Pastor Kyle challenges the church today to understand that God calls us to love, but that is not the same as tolerance. Tolerance is cheap and it can cause us to stray from the never changing truth of God's word.
Pergamum | Kyle Kotrch
This week we take a look at the church in Pergamum, a church commended for its faithfulness but also challenged for its complicity in compromising the gospel and allowing false teachings to take hold within.
We face many of the same challenges in the church today. The things of the world slowly try to creep in and take hold in our churches, and Jesus is calling the church to reject those things that run contrary to His word and return to the living breathing word of God.
