Where life begins again

We’re the same church, we’re just saying it better now. CitiChurch is now Storyside Church.


The story of our new name

“Both sides of the story matter. The struggles and the pain that God brought you through have helped shape you, but now you have a new story to tell.”

- Pastor Micah


Our church has been, and remains, a community where new stories are being written for people’s lives each week. Stories of marriages saved and strengthened. Stories of addictions being broken. Stories of emotional healing and hope restored. But life isn’t just a story of victories, but rather a culmination of experiences that God uses to shape us into who we are. Our name captures that both sides of your story matter and everyday is another opportunity to live your story and begin life again.

Where Life Begins Again™ is more than a slogan for us. Where Life Begins Again™ is an invitation for people to experience second, third, fourth, and fifth chances in their faith, their relationships, and with their God-given purpose. It’s a challenge to each of us to pursue God daily and start each day with a new mindset leaving behind the past and pressing onward each day toward God’s purpose for our life. Our hope is that Storyside would continue to be a place where people feel safe, encouraged, and challenged to daily pursue God’s purpose for all areas of their life.

Storyside Kids

Helping kids discover a passion for God.

At Storyside Kids, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and God’s word can impact your children even at a young age. Through worship, teaching, and a variety of fun activities, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to grow in their relationship with God. Our children’s services are fully staffed with adults and high school students who are committed to teaching and helping your kids live God’s story for their life.

Storyside Kids is offered during all of our weekend services, with doors opening 15 minutes before our services.

Storyside Students

Connecting students to fun and purpose.

Storyside Students is an opportunity for your youth to meet peers and connect to their purpose. Each week they meet and talk through the real issues they are facing, study God’s word, and walk away with a positive message they can apply throughout their week. We're convinced that the next generation is full of purpose, they are a vital part of the life of our church, and that’s why we invest in them each week.

Beyond the weekly hangout, COLLIDE happens once a month and these nights are a blast. #StorysideCollide is a combination of Middle School & High School students. We bring in guest speakers, live & crazy worship, competitions, giveaways, after-parties and more.

Storyside Groups

Encouraging each other through all of life.

Read More

In a Storyside Group, you’ll meet people who live near you, are in the same stage of life as you, or have similar interests. Whether you are reading through a bible study together, serving with one of our Outreach Partners, or sharing a common interest, our Storyside Groups are places where community is built, and lives are changed. Through Christ, God loves us just as we are. But He loves us too much to leave us where we are. And we were never meant to take this journey alone. Find a group, or start your own, and begin growing in your relationship with God and His church.

You can play a part by greeting people at the doors, be the first person people see by helping in the parking lot, use your creative skills, or serve coffee at the coffee shop. There are so many ways you can make a difference by giving of your time.
