Going somewhere new is hard... especially a new church.
The good news is, Living Stones is a down-to-earth, friendly, casual place where you won't have to meet any big expectations... you can investigate and discover more about God and know that you can do it in your own way and at your own pace.
Our worship gatherings begin at 9:30am and 11:15am. Come 10 minutes early to enjoy a free cup of coffee. The services last approximately 65 minutes.
Dress is casual, so come as you are. ...we're a jeans and t-shirt kind of people, so you'll be welcomed no matter what you are wearing!
If you've got kids, your first stop is the lscKIDS! space, a place for kids birth - 3rd grade. Our children's check-in system will ensure you of their security, and your kids will enjoy a fun journey together through age appropriate, exciting activities developed to point them toward a relationship with Jesus.

[kickstart:church] is available for 4th and 5th grade students every Sunday during the 11:15 service (except for the 1st Sunday of each month). Students will be cued to leave worship at the beginning of the message and will rejoin you at close of the service. Students will enjoy a group time of teaching and games designed to meet them at their age level. Click here for more information.
if you should find yourself in the Worship Gathering struggling with a noisy or inconsolable kiddo, the litteTHEATRE is available to you. Located just off the lobby, the littleTHEATRE is a small lounge where you can continue to participate in the worship gathering via closed circuit TV.
Our time of worship is informal and casual, where you can participate or simply reflect. Expect to laugh as well as hear something relevant to your life. Expect to rock out – our songs are contemporary and led by a full band. The lyrics and Bible passages used throughout will be displayed on a big screen.

We celebrate communion, a time of remembering Jesus' death and resurrection, every week. It is an “open” communion, meaning that everyone is invited to Jesus’ table. So please feel welcome to come forward (just follow the crowd), eat a small piece of bread and drink a small cup of juice, and return to your seat.
An offering is collected every week. As an act of worship, we give to the Lord a tithe and/or offering. You are welcome to participate, but as a guest, you are certainly not expected to. This is the time , however, to put your “check-in card” from the bulletin into the bucket as it comes by. There are also "giving" boxes located on the wall near the doors as you exit.
We promise not to single you out. We're a friendly laid back people, so you'll almost certainly be greeted and some may introduce themselves to you, but we'll do nothing to single you out or call attention to your visiting. So relax, enjoy the experience, and let us know if you have any questions.
Anyone – no matter who you are, what you believe, or what you are in to - is welcome! We won't ask you questions of lifestyle, habit, or conviction as you walk through the door. Jesus had a habit of welcoming all that came to him. Since we are trying to be like him – we want to do the same. You are welcome – just as you are. And remember, all of us were new to Living Stones Church at one time!
Our life together as Living Stones does not end with Sundays. A relationship with God and His community happens (and must) from Monday through the next Sunday. As you begin to hang out with us, you'll hear about Groups, and I LOVE SOUTH SIDE events and service opportunities, volunteer opportunities, and fun events, all designed to be opportunities to live life together and carry out our vision to effect the South side with God's love.
