Church: Doing Life Together
This is the where the rubber hits the road for Five Stones Church. In Matthew 28:19 Jesus says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
There isn’t a formula or a specific curriculum that you need to go through when it comes to discipleship. Discipleship is answering the question ‘How do you do life together?’ through the power of the gospel. It’s taking ownership of your faith in Jesus. It’s living out the commands that Jesus has laid out for us. It’s about learning to stand in the truth that Jesus has come to proclaim and fulfill. When we look at discipleship, we want it to happen organically and authentically. It’s about seeking after Jesus.
At Five Stones, we do life together in a lot of ways:
The Cell Group Ministry helps us live out the Gospel as Jesus has instructed: first to grow in our relationship with God and intimacy with Jesus through understanding and hearing the gospel in discipleship, and to influence our city in how we are to live.
A cell group is meant to be a community in which to share and live life together to care, support, and equip each other to live out our calling as a church. We meet regularly throughout the week to learn, pray, study, and eat to intentionally live out the Gospel.

Freedom Session is a proven healing-discipleship program for men and women from every walk of life, who are ready to look honestly at how they deal with life’s challenges and discover the abundant life God intended them to live.
Effective discipleship involves leading an authentic and examined life. Therefore, emotional and relational healing should be considered a normative step in every Christian’s discipleship journey. To find out if Freedom Session is for you, visit freedomsession.com.

At Five Stones, we are committed to equip and empower kids to advance the Kingdom of God. Our passion is to see our kids grow in their relationship with Jesus through the Word, to encounter His presence through the Holy Spirit, and to glorify God through life surrendered.
Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to create a loving and fun environment where kids can encounter and experience the Holy Spirit in a way that reveals the Father’s love for them and for others. Fostering a culture of serving and loving one another out of overflow of Father’s love is a vital part of our community.
As Jesus has commanded us to “go and make disciples of all nations”, we disciple our kids to be the influencers in the world that they are growing up in. We celebrate small to big impact that kids can have in their own community whether it’s praying for their friends or rallying around social issues to restore Kingdom culture in our society.
Our Prayer Ministry team prays for the needs of our church on a daily basis and corporately on Sunday mornings.
