At Living Stones Church we come from all walks of life, but we are all the same under one roof. It’s the people that make the church, and it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do; you’re welcome here.

GREETINGS
FROM PASTOR PAUL

WELCOME

We desire to help you walk in freedom in every area of your life. Free from the negative effects of future uncertainties, economic pressures, relational tensions, anxiety, worry, fear, and the like. Jesus’ story bears compelling witness to the fact the He has a purpose filled life for each one of us to live out fully and freely.

At Living Stones Church we provide many opportunities for you to discover the truth and learn practical skills that will help you to move towards a life of real and lasting freedom. Take the first step, reach out, and let us journey with you.

“Living Stones Church gives me a sense of belonging. Family. Safety. Honesty. Pastor Paul is a remarkable teacher. This church has been my rock through life’s hardest times. My long, challenging divorce, the loss of my son, so many things. But I feel like I am covered when I am in LSC. And I know I am loved and welcomed and prayed for.

I look forward to coming every Sunday.”

The Growth Found in Seasons of Snow

Article by: Hannah Miller, High School Youth Pastor It's no secret that I detest winter! I'm not joking; I hate winter. It's not just the cold either; it's the snow that I don't like. I could handle winter better if it were just cold and dry. Snow, however, makes...

In March 2021, Pastor Mark was preaching a message called If I do not have love, my faith is bankrupt. He encouraged us to love our enemies - pray for those who curse us. If we are angry or hurt, the grace of God is sufficient to get us out from under it.  

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. - Luke 6:27-31.

The Jews despised the Romans because they oppressed Gods people, but Jesus told the people to love these enemies. Such words turned many away from Christ. But Jesus wasnt talking about having affection for enemies; he was talking about an act of the will. You cant fall into this kind of love - it takes conscious effort. Loving our enemies means acting in their best interests. We can pray for them, and we can think of ways to help them. Jesus loved the whole world, even though the world was in rebellion against God. Jesus asks us to follow his example by loving our enemies. Grant your enemies the same respect and rights that you desire for yourself. - Life  Application Study Bible.

1 Peter 3:8-9 dont curse but bless, to this we have been called, that we may inheret a blessing. Yes.

“It seems we find this amazing mood swing in this communication with God. Jeremiah knows God is for him, even though he feels forsaken and abandoned. The conflict then is between his theology, what he knows about God, his emotionally distraught state of mind and the painful realities he is currently experiencing. In other words, his soul is conflicted. We may lose a sense of the intensity of Jeremiah’s situation because of the cultural mores of a shame and honour society. While Jeremiah seems, in the eyes of his contemporaries and possibly at times within his own soul, to be disgraced, shamed, and dishonoured, the reality is that God will ultimately vindicate him and disgrace his opponents. Jeremiah knows he is called by God, has heard His voice, and is conveying God’s message to the nation and ultimately, as we shall see, to the nations.” - Dr. Paul Vallee.
