Life-Giving God

Charles Kiser —  November 18, 2008 — 1 Comment

We had a good time this weekend with South MacArthur Church, our primary partnering church, for Storyline’s New Church Shower. Supporters gave more than $1100 in donations and gifts to help us get the worship gathering up and running. Thanks to all of you who gave.

Mr. Ryan Porche is subsequently having too much fun this week buying speakers, storage bins, trailers (well just one), staging, etc. Admittedly, I’ve had a little fun myself in the moments I’ve been able to join him.

If you’d still like to give to the cause, you have three options: 1) buy a gift off the Storyline registries by the end of this week at (after which point they will close); 2) make a donation via PayPal at; or 3) mail a donation to 3523 McKinney Ave. Number 223 Dallas, TX 75204.

God continues to give life to Storyline.

Please pray for us this week as we finalize space for our first monthly worship gathering on December 14. We’ve had no small amount of drama trying to secure a location.

The two venues we tried to reserve in the last two weeks have fallen through!

I’m beginning to wonder what God is up to in the midst of all of it. Please pray that God will give us wisdom to discern how his Spirit is leading.

Please also pray that we will not forget what is most important in the next couple months—a very busy season for us and the life of this church.

Pray that God would remain our first thing, and that we would continue to cultivate relationships with our friends here in Uptown.

We thank God for your support in prayer. It’s really more important than anything else.

One response to Life-Giving God


    Good to talk with ya last week, Charles. I love the church-shower idea. You guys are right in the middle of some exciting stuff. As always, God is the only one who can really provide what is needed. The story wouldn’t be very good if that wasn’t the case, right?
    We’re in the same boat with finding a place to live in Vancouver. It’s been difficult to think of what happens if nothing turns up. We really don’t want to have to move our stuff twice in a six month period! It’s one of those scenarios when we’re really really needing something extraordinary to happen that we’re not capable of pulling off ourselves.
