Watch this 3-minute video for the answer. You've heard of "sequel," right? A story that comes after another story? And you've heard of "prequel" too. A story that comes before another story. Requel is a retelling of the same story in a new and fresh way. The church story is not a new story. It's been around for 2,000 years. But we have the chance to tell the great story of Christ and his church in a new and fresh way.
That perfectly describes what we want to be. We want to celebrate the good news of Jesus in a way that makes sense and relates to every day people. From the songs we sing (contemporary) to the clothes we wear (casual) to the language we use (understandable), we want to be "requel" in our approach. But the message we teach each and every week is straight from the Bible.
Church Requel. New. Fresh. Understandable. Biblical.
