Come Tell in the Story Theatre
You could be one of the storytellers. It's an opportunity to share your favourite scripture with friends and audience. (No, you do not need to be an expert teller and Yes, the buttons are actually one and the same link)


  • Telling can be any length up to 12 minutes long (longer by permission only)

  • Tellings are Scripture. Another day we will hold a Story Theatre with stories outside of scripture, midrash and telling in your own words

  • Be thoughtful about the translation language you are choosing, showing respect for all people

  • Nope, no more videos. Come and tell!

  • We'll help you with your wifi presence, if you would like some coaching

  • Come 15 minutes early to ensure success

  • Here is the download of the formatted scripture
