MEET & GREET FOR PASTOR ROB AND ELISA: Now that we have gotten past the crazy schedule of camps, we would love for you to officially meet Pastor Rob and his wife Elisa. Rob has been on staff full-time for almost a month now going full steam. They finally sold their house in Georgia and have recently closed on their home in Waxhaw. We invite you to help welcome them to Five Stones by meeting them in the GYM after each of the services on August 13th. We ALSO invite you to welcome them to their new home by bringing a Gift Card for a store such as Target, Wal-mart or Lowe’s Home Improvement and dropping it in a designated basket in the GYM on August 13th as well. Excited to have them on board and at home!
OPERATION SCHOOL SUPPLIES & UNIFORM DRIVE: Help us impact our community by providing school supplies and uniforms for families in need right here in Waxhaw as we continue our partnership with Waxhaw and Western Union Elementary Schools, Parkwood Middle and South Providence. Stop by the Engage Culture kiosk this Sunday to pick up a school supply list and/or to get more information. Collection Sunday will be August 13th.

NEW COMMUNITY CAMPUS WILL LAUNCH WITH 3 SERVICES: As part of our effort to make worship and our various age specific environments as accommodating as possible as well as provide room for growth, we will be launching our new Community Campus with 3 services. We will prepare our Teams and provide the opportunity for families to select their new worship time by implementing the new service times on AUGUST 27th while we are still at the school campus. The new service times will be 9AM, 10:30AM and 12PM. If you currently attend community worship at 9:15AM, please consider attending the 9AM service. If you currently attend community worship at 11AM, please consider attending the 12PM service. With the addition of the 3rd service there will be ample opportunity to join a Ministry Team. If you do not currently serve one hour please consider joining one of our awesome Ministry Teams (even if only every other week). Get more info and sign up here!
