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.
Ephesus | Kyle Kotrch
In the beginning of Revelation 2 we see Jesus' first of 7 letters to the church, and He has a lot of good things to say about the church in Ephesus. He commends them for their patient endurance, their discerning spirit, and their resistance of the false teachings that were prevalent in their time, but He also has one major challenge for them. He says they have lost, left, or (some translations) forsaken their first love.
Tune in as Pastor Kyle challenges us with where we have left the love we first had for Jesus, and how we as the collective church must return to the love of Christ.
John's Vision of Jesus | Kyle Kotrch
Over the next several weeks we will be diving into the book of Revelation. Now, most people automatically think we are headed for a hell fire and brimstone/ end of the world theme when Revelation is brought up, but that's not quite where we are heading. We will be looking at the 7 letters to the churches in Revelation. In these letters, Jesus is speaking directly to His church, commending them for the things they have done well, but also challenging them in the areas they have fallen short, and we believe that there is an incredible amount of information we can gather from these letters that is applicable to the church today!
As we begin we are looking at the first chapter of Revelation, and we find John exiled on the island of Patmos where he has an encounter with the resurrected Jesus.
Zero Collective Online Experience | David Doerner
In our final message of 2020 we have teamed up with the churches in The Zero Collective, and their teaching pastor David Doerner has a great word for us to close out 2020 as well as a look forward to 2021.
God Writes Himself Into The Story | Kyle Kotrch
Continuing "A Weary World Rejoices" we finally see the fulfillment of the promise of God in Isaiah 61. God wrote himself into our story through the person of Jesus, and we celebrate the coming of our savior, the messiah, Jesus Christ!
What is our Response? | Kyle Kotrch
We know that our world has this huge problem we call sin, and God tells us that His son, the Messiah, is the answer to that problem, but that leaves us with another question... How are we going to respond?
Isaiah 61 says that God will make us like great Oaks that he has planted for his glory... that is if we are willing to surrender and allow him to do His work! Listen in as Pastor Kyle continues our Christmas series talking about God's desires for us and how we must respond to be planted, watered, grown, and pruned for His glory.
God Has the Answer | Kyle Kotrch
Last week we identified the problem in the world as Isaiah 61 shows us. This week we explore God's great answer to this problem in the person of Jesus Christ the Messiah.
