Church Done Differently
Join Us This Sunday
If Sunday will be your first time at StoryHeights Church, we can’t wait to meet you! We recommend arriving about 10 minutes early to park and get your seat. If you have children, you’ll then head to our children’s check-in area to be sure your kids are taken care of in a safe and exciting environment by our fully trained and background checked teams, or if you want to get to know our team and environments first, it’s totally okay to bring your children into service with you. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee from our cafe bar, where our coffee supports the communities of Mexico, Honduras, and Africa (where the coffee beans come from). Every service begins with live music where a talented group of vocalists and instrumentalists will lead everyone in a few songs. If this is unfamiliar to you, please don’t be concerned. Every week dozens of new attendees (just like you) join us for the first time, and we won’t call you out or embarrass you. So don’t worry, you’re not alone! After the music, you’ll hear a relevant, life-giving message from the Bible by one of our lead pastors or a member of our teaching team. The whole service last less than 90 minutes. We’ll see you on Sunday!

How to Get Here
The entrance to our parking lot is on Chestnut Street. If you’re driving down Chestnut coming from Route 9, it will be on your right. Our building is down the hill, immediately across from Carriage House Violins and Elaine Construction.
By the "T"
Our building is located in the “Echo Bridge Mall” immediately adjacent to the “Chestnut St @ Elliot St” stop on the 59 bus. The 59 bus route can be found here, and stops along the Green Line and through Needham, Newton, Brighton, and Watertown. We are also located a little less than 1 mile from the Elliot Street stop on the D Green Line. In order to arrange a ride from the Elliot Street stop to the building on Sunday morning, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 24 hours of advanced notice.
What to Expect
At StoryHeights you’ll experience a stress-free environment with a service that lasts no longer than 90 minutes. You can wear whatever makes you comfortable. There’s no dress code. You’ll hear incredible music and a practical and inspirational sermon/homily that you’ll be able to immediately apply to your everyday life.
If you have children, they will have a blast in our SH Kids rooms. All the kids have fun in a safe and secure classroom designed in a clean and contemporary way. They’ll sing, dance, laugh and play all while learning virtues and how to love themselves.
We even have an environment for your middle and high school students in a relaxed atmosphere. There’s donuts, gaming, fun and cool young adult leaders to ignite a relationship with Christ, and partner with you to continue the conversation on self-respect, love for all people, and how to resist peer pressure.
We'd Love to Meet You
We have coffee and tea and a variety of dairy and nondairy creamer options and 100% recyclable cups waiting on you and will go above and beyond to meet your every need while with us. We are fully handicap-accessible and welcome everyone.
Do people have to tithe/give?
The teaching of giving at StoryHeights is identical to the teaching of most evangelical Christian churches around the world and across many denominations, as it is based on Scripture. Furthermore, all Christian churches receive financial offerings and rely on these to function. All giving at StoryHeights Church is discretionary and while we believe in the biblical principle of ‘tithing’ (giving a percentage of income to God through the ministry of the local church) no one is told they “have to” tithe, ever pressured to tithe or even to give at all. We call the offering a ‘free will’ offering for a reason – and many people let the offering containers pass them by without contributing anything.
How is Pastor Tyler Tullos paid?
Pastor Tyler Tullos is paid a salary determined by the StoryHeights Church Compensation board, as are all of our church staff. His salary is determined independently – a decision that he is not a part of.
Am I required to become a member?
We believe one of the greatest opportunities for spiritual growth is to not just attend a church service, but rather to commit yourself to a local church body in community, service, and relationship. We do have a formal membership assimilation process in place for those desiring this type of relationship with the local church; however, it is not a requirement for participation in our ministry or to attend our services. You will have the opportunity to place formal membership through our Growth Track Ministry. You are, however, welcome to attend, serve and participate with all volunteers as a non-member if you feel membership is not right for you at this time.
