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.

  • Kristin & Joe Jamison- 22605 Ireland Rd, SB, 46614

    GROUP FOR MEN & Women, 20's & 30's | Mondays @ 6:45 PM


    Kristin and Joe have been married for 7 years - both Purdue grads. (Boiler Up!) Joe works as a mechanical engineer and Kristin is a family nurse practitioner.  Outside of work, Joe enjoys autocross racing and Kristen enjoys playing volleyball and baking.  Joe and Kristen enjoy meeting new people and are looking forward to discussion, building relationship and growing as a group this season. Group members can plan on enjoying a meal each week while spending time studying scripture and how they can apply it to their daily lives. The Jamison’s group will dive into Max Lucado’s book, “Life Lessons from Colossians and Philemon.”  This book brings the Bible to life in 12 lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories and reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word.



  • Clive Neal- Living Stones Church Little Theatre

    Group for men | Tuesdays @ 6:30 PM

    Clive's mens group will spend time studying digging deep into scripture.  Through discussion the men's group will seek to find ways to apply the biblical principles seen in the scripture into our every day living.  Clive is from "out of town" as shown by his accent.  He is passionate about the Lord, his family, getting humans to live and work successfully on the Moon, and scientific ocean drilling.  He is married to Denise (another out of towner), who keeps him on the straight and narrow.  



  • Lowell & Katie Kosak - 850 Lincolnway E., Mish 46544

    GROUP FOR Young Adults| Mondays @ 7:00 PM

    The Kosak’s love hosting in their home and invite college aged/young adults to experience “Dinner and Discussion” on Monday evenings.  The group will spend time in a study going through the books of Luke and Acts in the New Testament.  Lowell works for Impact Campus Ministries, reaching out and traveling to many national college campuses. Katie’s job doesn’t involve travel like Lowell’s, but she goes on every day adventures working with students at Nuner Primary School.  College aged/young adults can count on community and connection in this group and also get some “home cooking” to go along with it.


  • Jim & Tina Ruth - 58260 Pam Dr, South Bend, 46619

    GROUP FOR Men & Women | MONDAYS @ 6:30 PM

    Tina and Jim are retired, but have found many ways to fill their new found “free time.”  Jim recently added bus driver to his lists and talents and Tina is learning to play the cello!  She loves taking walks in the woods, playing the piano, watching home decorating shows and he is a die-hard Cubs fan - both Chicago and South Bend!! The Ruth’s will be leading a group open to all and will be reading and discussing the book Pilgrim’s Progress, using a modern English version of the book. Once the most deeply cherished book in English-speaking households other than Bible itself, John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress is the allegorical tale of Christian, the pilgrim, on his journey to the Celestial City. Although this book was written more than three hundred years ago, the spiritual narrative still bears the power to challenge and encourage readers on their own spiritual journeys.


  • Jeff & Debbie Gritton - 4825 Selkirk Dr, SB, 46614

    GROUP FOR Men & WOMEN | Sundays @ 6:00 PM

    Jeff and Deb have been together almost 45 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.  The Gritton group will spend early 2020 reading through the book of Colossians.  Paul wrote this letter to challenge believers to remember who we are in Christ and how to walk in Christ.  Along with discussing Colossians, the Gritton group will commit to focusing on prayer for 2020.


  • Denise Neal - LSC, Community Room

    GROUP FOR WOMEN | Tuesdays @ 6:30 PM

    Denise says of herself, “I love God, love my family, and love getting to know and encourage women of all ages in walking the walk and talking the talk.”  Denise is also very passionate about learning how to hear God’s voice, move more in the Spirit and spending daily time on her personal relationship with Jesus.  She’s a supportive (and busy) mother and grandmother who enjoys gardening, knitting, reading and also has a deep passion for animals.  Denise’s Tuesday night women’s group will draw discussions from a video study presented by Christian author and speaker, Lisa Terkeurst.  The study, “Twelve Women of the Bible” will allow you to learn more about twelve women who encountered God and whose lives were forever changed.  Their stories will encourage you through their failures as well as their successes.


  • Lowell & Katie Kosak - Jamison's Home, 22605 Ireland Rd, South Bend, 46614

    GROUP FOR Men & WOMEN | Thursdays @ 6:30 PM

    Lowell and Katie will be leading group members through Greg Pruett’s book, “Extreme Prayer.” This book taps into that longing for connection with God when we need it most by teaching us to pray the kinds of prayers Jesus promised to answer with unlimited power.  It’s not about how to pray more, it’s about praying differently! Lowell’s small group welcomes couples and singles of all ages. Lowell and his wife Katie have been married 28 years and have 2 adult sons. Lowell’s been in ministry all his life, and currently works with Impact Campus Ministries.  Katie’s works with students at Nuner Primary School.


  • Angie medors - LSC, Community room

    GROUP FOR MEN & WOMEN | Mondays @ 6:30 PM

    Angie is the kind of person who loves to set New Year’s Goals/Resolutions, but is the first to admit that many goals tend to end before they ever had a chance. But that’s not always the case and Angie’s learned a thing or two about sticking to some big goals ... like training for and completing her first marathon this past November.  Other LSC’ers may not dream of being a marathoner but might have goals like starting a business, writing a book, traveling abroad or learning to ride a bike or swim.  Using Jon Acuff’s book, “Finish” this group will meet weekly to talk about those goals, break them down into attainable tasks and with a dose of reality and humor, see what we can “Finish” during these 10 weeks.  Angie’s been on staff at LSC for 6 years and besides running, she loves spending time with family and friends, cheering on her 3 kids in their passions, and playing cards  or board games.
