Join us for church online this weekend.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendation of our OH Governor, since mid-March, we’ve suspended services at all of our physical locations: Bellville, Mount Vernon, and Ontario. We have continued to monitor the situation and we have a tentative plan to regather and resume normal weekend services at our locations. See below. (Updated 5/28/20)



While public gathering restrictions are in effect, we’ve moved all of our worship experiences online!

Join us on Facebook Live or YouTube on Sundays at 9:00AM & 10:45AM!



During the month of May, we’ve taken Storyside on tour and popped up in a city near you every Saturday! Let’s worship and celebrate Jesus from the comfort of our cars for our fifth & final stop!

This Saturday, May 30 at 6PM, join us at Storyside, 541 State Route 97 W, Bellville OH for a Drive-In Worship Experience!



We will continue providing worship & a message on Facebook Live on Thursdays at 7PM.

Beginning June 2, a weekly online-only experience will be provided on Tuesdays at 7PM. (No option to attend.)

The church is open for anyone to attend the Thursday live mid-week experience on the following days:

  • Thursday, June 4, 7PM
  • Thursday, June 11, 7PM

No reservation needed for Thursdays in June. (Please note the time change.)

Gather your families together and let’s fuel our faith!

Once fully regathered, Thursdays will resume being a full weekend service that mirrors a Sunday experience.



Bellville & Ontario Tentative Timeline:

  • Sunday, June 14 — Staff, Team Leads, and Full Dream Team (Ontario @ Ontario, Bellville @ Bellville)
  • Sunday, June 21 — All Are Welcome (Fully Regathered) 🥳

Until Further Notice:

  • No On-Site Kids Ministry (Online Curriculum Still Available)

Until we fully gather again, we’ll use the remaining time for deep-cleaning, Dream Team training, and putting our efforts toward creating the best & most effective worship experience!



Continuing to keep our kids & students connected to build their faith is a main priority for Storyside Church. We’ve prepared experiences for all ages!

There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen. We know that prayer works. Whatever you need, whatever you are facing, whatever you are thankful for, we want to join with you here in prayer.



Even in this season of uncertainty, thank you for your financial faithfulness as we continue to meet the needs of the church and the church members who need help. You can give online here.
