BETTER TOGETHER LA
#BetterTogetherLA is Story City Church’s generosity initiative to serve the communities that sustain us. When there is a need in our community, we want to run to it and serve. We facilitate this generosity through groups from all over the US who help us fulfill our servant role in our city. It's our pleasure and deep conviction to be givers and not takers, as we believe Christ was and calls us to be. We'd love to connect with you at one of our Sunday gatherings. Below are additional ways and dates you can benefit from or even help us serve LA.
