GROUPS @ LIVING STONES

God never intended for us to live the Christian life alone. The Book of Acts gives us a great picture of the early church - where group members engaged in life together spending time eating, learning, celebrating, proclaiming the Good News and supporting each other. It was a place where people loved, forgave, served, bore burdens, encouraged, prayed, equipped, spoke truth in love and treated each other as a precious member of one body. At LSC we want our GROUPS to follow those same ideas as we gather together on a weekly basis outside of our normal Sunday worship. And we want each of our Living Stoners to experience the spiritual growth, connections and friendships that can happen in community ... in GROUPS.

    GROUP FOR MEN & WOMEN | WEDNESDAYS @ 7:00 PM

    Lowell will be leading Group members through Marty Solomon's BEMA study.  The BEMA program is an attempt to recapture a few of the elements that were present in the early church. It is not our desire to recreate an ancient world, but to learn from its successes and implement something vibrant into the culture of today.  Lowell’s small group welcomes couples and singles of all ages. Lowell and Katie have been married 27 years and have 2 adult sons,  Daniel and Noah. Lowell’s been in ministry all his life, and currently leads Impact Campus Ministries in South Bend reaching area college campuses.

    GROUP FOR MEN & WOMEN, 20'S & 30'S | MONDAYS @ 7PM


    Joe and Kristin are calling on LSCers in their 20s/30s to join them in their home as they tackle conversations on friendships - because it’s true - real friendship can be costly and make us vulnerable.  But without risk, our lives remain impoverished.  So, how do we be a good friend in an age of judgment, isolation and fear?  Join the group and join the discussion. Joe and Kristin have been married 5 years, both Purdue grads ... Boiler Up!  Joe works as a mechanical engineer and loves the auctocross racing sport. Kristin is a family nurse practitioner and loves sand volleyball and baking.  They both enjoy meeting new people and look forward to discussing, building relationships and growing as a group this session.

    The Kosak’s love hosting in their home and invite college aged/young adults to experience “Dinner and Discussion” on Monday evenings. The spring session will challenge members to move from a life of self-interest and self-fulfillment to living and thriving  as a community of Christ followers! Not only will you enjoy community and connection with others, but you’ll also get some “home-cooking” to go along with it. Kosak’s home is also residence to many area college students who call the “campus house” home. Lowell’s passion for this life-stage is evident by how he spends his 9-5 job ... leading and training others within Impact Campus Ministries, reaching area college students and beyond

    GROUP FOR MEN & WOMEN | SUNDAYS @ 6:00 PM

    The Gritton group will work together on a study in the book of Jonah.  Through the study and discussion group members will discover that at the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in HIm. Jeff and his wife, Deb, have been married for 40 years!!  Over half of those years have been devoted to opening their home to small groups.  They love to think of their home as a safe place for men and women to join in community whether their lives are thriving, spiraling out of control, hurting or just plain broken.  Jeff and Deb love coming alongside of fellow Living Stoners to offer encouragement, hope and love.
