Everyone has a story to tell. What’s yours?
StoryArc, FUMCFW ‘s original a digital storytelling project wants to hear your story! If you have a story you’d like to share and would like to publish your own StoryArc digital story, please contact us!
This creative online platform offers guided opportunities for telling the stories of God’s presence in our lives as a community of faith.
Here’s how it works:
Several times each year, we schedule a Story Circle led by Rev. Tom McDermott, who in addition to leading our eleven:eleven worship community is also a professional storyteller and published author.
As a group we’ll come together to tell our stories to one another, and with Tom’s guidance and the help of this group, each participant will be able to hone their story into its essential elements.
Over the course of the next few weeks, participants will meet with the StoryArc team to finalize their scripts, record their narration, choose and assemble images, and add a professional underscore.
Once everyone is finished, the group will come back together for a celebration, time of sharing how the experience impacted them, and group screening of all the stories. Then, with permission, these will be posted to our FUMCFW website and social media for others to enjoy.
“The experience of creating and sharing stories in this format is always an affirming, playful, meaningful, community building experience,” Tom says. “Regardless of where you begin with your story, telling it through StoryArc is profoundly moving in a way you cannot anticipate. Come give it a try!”
