Easter at Living Stones Church

As we come together to worship the One who conquered death, we do so with hope, joy, and love because of the promise of His great victory.  Please join us in celebrating Jesus, the name above all names, this Easter at Living Stones!


We've prepared an incredible service for the entire family.  Whether it's your first time at church or you're simply trying out LSC, we'd be honored to have you as we reflect on the Risen King, and celebrate the story of Jesus together.  From worship music to relevant life lessons and takeaways, we're confident you'll feel welcome at Living Stones.

LSC will offer three identical in-person Easter Sunday services: 

8:00am | 9:30am | 11:15am

* at this time, masks are required to be worn during the entirety of your visit at LSC*

To offer the best worship experience and keeping COVID-19 safety guidelines in mind, we are offering three options for our Easter Services.  As you begin your time here you can expect a warm "Hello" from our Welcome Team and a fresh cup of coffee or hot tea before you even enter the building.  If you have children, infant through 3rd grade, you will enter the LSC Kids! doors, check-in the kids and drop them off at their classrooms.  Upon entering the worship center you'll be offered a printed bulletin form our Welcome Team and directed to pick-up the pre-packaged communion available for all who would like to take part. 


Easter service will begin with our Worship Band leading us into high-energy praise and worship giving glory to our Risen King!  After a few songs, you'll hear a couple short announcements and then Pastor Pat Malloy will share a relevant and challenging message as we reflect on Jesus' words from the cross, "... Today, you will be with me in Paradise."  Following Pastor Pat's message, we'll join in taking communion together, as a family, remembering the greatest sacrifice and gift we've ever known.  All are welcome to take part in communion.  Before an offer for prayer and blessings the Worship Band will finish out the service with more music to send you out into the day. 

LSC Kids! will have fully staffed classrooms for all three services on Easter Sunday. 

Children, infant through 3rd grade, will receive age appropriate story telling, worship, lessons and activities to share the importance of this special day. 

If you are visiting LSC for the first time and plan to check-in your kids, text 'newfamily' to 574-663-1574 to fill out the form, and we'll have tags waiting for your kiddos upon arrival!


LSC Kids! has the safety of all in mind.

Good Friday Service - April 2, 12:00 noon

This is a time dedicated to allow space to reflect on the Crucifixion, the darkest day any human ever faced.  The service will last about 45 minutes in its entirety.  Those attending should expect low lights and a somber tone with some imagery of the Crucifixion.  Because of this, it may be challenging for young children.  Child care will not be offered.

*at this time, masks are required to be worn during the entirety of your visit at LSC*

Easter "Egg"venture - Saturday April 3, 1-2pm @ Riley High School track/field

LSC is offering an alternative, COVID-safe spin on a traditional egg hunt for the south side community and LSC families.  Families can arrive at any time between 1pm and 2pm to begin their "EGG-venture!"  You'll make one trip around the track (traveling in small groups and guided by a volunteer), stopping at stations along the way.  Each station will tell a part of an "EGG"cellant story, so you wont want to skip.  Kids will receive many special treats along the route.  Before heading out, families can take a quick picture with our Easter Bunny.  We'll do our best in offering the safest experience for you and your families. We ask that you help by keeping families together at all times, traveling with your volunteer guide and keeping masks on during the entirety of the event. 

*at this time, masks are required to be worn during the entirety of your visit at this LSC hosted event*

At this time Living Stones Church is continuing to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines offered by local and state governing officials.  

During the Easter weekend we want you to know what to expect before arriving. 


*Masks are required to be worn properly during the entirety of your visit at LSC or other events.

*Contact-free greeting is encouraged.  It's OK to not shake hands or hug your neighbor during these times.  We know it's so natural, but let's opt for other contact-free options to say our "hellos."  Smiling is great, even under a mask.

*Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.

*Easter Sunday we will offer our coffee bar.  Please allow our Welcome Team to serve you.

*Communion elements are pre-packaged into individual cups, please have only one family member

take what is needed. 

*Printed bulletins will be available during the Easter Service.  Our Welcome Team volunteer will be

wearing gloves to ensure a contact less delivery. 

*Chairs in the Worship Center are set-up to accommodate singles, couples, and families of all sizes.  For small groups of 4 and under, please fill middle section of seating first, allowing larger families to fill in on the left and right sections.
