Our primary mission as a church is to bring those outside of relationship with God into reconciliation and a new identity in Jesus.
A disciple has received their identity from Jesus and his call for their life. We are committed to be a church of disciples that are making more disciples of Jesus.
We are a church that wants to see God’s kingdom influence our cities as we serve those around us.
God’s saving love is for all peoples and all nations and so we dedicate ourselves to the planting and support of new churches.
At Living Stones, we utilize a simple strategy to accomplish our mission which consists of engaging our members in three things: worship gatherings, community groups, and serving.
Worship gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church to worship God, pray, learn the Scriptures, and observe the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism as the people of God.
We invite anyone to join us on Sundays. If you have children, we also have a thriving LS Kids ministry that meets during our gatherings.
Throughout Scripture God’s people are shaped by their relationships with God and with one another. Scripture calls us to dedicate ourselves to their example (Acts 2:42-47, Heb 10:24-25).
At Living Stones, Community Groups are the primary way that we build relationships each week. These small groups gather throughout the week to pray, encourage one another, study the Bible, and discuss how we can live in further dedication to God and his mission.
Our Community Groups meet all over Northern Nevada in homes, dorms, coffee shops, pubs, and diners throughout the week.
There are many opportunities to serve each other at Living Stones. Our ministry teams are organized into three main groups and volunteers are encouraged to serve according to their individual gifting and desire:
First Impressions: LS Kids teachers, LS Students leaders, greeters, ushers, community group leaders, Connect Desk informants, and financial stewards
Sunday Operations: Safety Team, service reset, cooking, coffee, service prayer, and preparing the Lord's Supper (Communion)
Arts & Media: camera, lights, art, sound, slides, podcast, and music
We believe that children are a crucial part to God’s mission and want our kids to encounter Jesus and become his disciples. LS Kids is for Ages 0 – Grade 5. We meet Sundays during our worship gatherings and provide a fun, safe place for kids to learn about Jesus and his transforming love.
We want to see middle and high school students experience their identity and purpose as revealed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. LS Students meets during the week for a time of worship, teaching, games, and discussion.
