Welcome to Five Stones Church!

We’re glad you’re interested in visiting our church. You’ll find that we are not a group of perfect people, but our desire is to be a group of authentic people worshipping a perfect Savior. You’ll find that we preach the transformational gospel of Jesus Christ unapologetically in our God-centered worship services. Our desire in all that we do is to bring glory to God by encouraging people to know God and to take their next step with Him. We hope you join us at a weekend service and more importantly, that you’ll choose to partner with us.

Here are some answers to some questions that you might be thinking of…

Worship Times:
9am, 10:30am & 12pm
Location:
Cuthbertson Middle School
1520 Cuthbertson Road
Waxhaw, NC 28173

If entering through the main entrance by the High School/Middle School sign at the road, there will be Five Stones signs and team members directing you to the Middle School which will be the second building.

Upon arriving at Five Stones (Cuthbertson Middle School) you will be directed by our Team to ensure that you get to where you need to go. Our First Impression Team will be easy to identify in the parking lot, hall ways, etc as they will be wearing shirts for you to easily spot. Their number one goal is to help you transition through our campus so that you can feel comfortable in taking your next step with God.

While casual dress is the norm at Five Stones Church you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. For some people normal is a dress or suit and for others its jeans. The point is that you don’t have to dress up special for us, and you don’t have to dress up special for God. Come as you are. Ultimately at Five Stones it’s not about a fashion show; it’s a gathering of real people seeking to have a real relationship with God.

At Five Stones Church, we believe that WORSHIP is a LIFESTYLE, it is how we live our lives out loud.

When we come together on Sunday morning, you will find a “come as you are” casual atmosphere. We believe that your worship experience will be authentic, intimate and personal. The music is modern, and the experience continues to span generations. If you would like to listen to the songs we sing regularly, click here.

Our pastor shares “life changing” messages that are applicable to your everyday life.

Take time this Sunday to visit us, we promise that your worship experience will be like no other.

We have 2 kids areas: WonderZone & Discover Factory

Wonder Zone (Infants through Transitional Kindergarten) provides a safe and fun environment where children experience God’s love for them through relevant Bible teaching, drama, music, discussion, and age-appropriate activities. Following a large group teaching time, preschoolers ages two and above gather in their small groups, where their trained leader helps foster relational and spiritual growth through age-appropriate games, conversations, and interaction with one another.
All preschoolers will be checked in using our electronic computer check in system. A nametag will be put on your child and you will receive a nametag with the corresponding number. For safety reasons, this nametag must be presented when picking up your child. In our Infant Classroom, you will be asked to complete an “All About Me” card to let us know your child’s schedule (feedings, naps, etc.). We will do our best to keep your child on their normal schedule!

Discover Factory (Kindergarten through Fifth Grade) is a unique approach to traditional Sunday school. It is built around three basic truths.

  • I need to make the wise choice
  • I can trust God no matter what
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated

In Discover Factory children are led through an interactive large group story, high energy worship and prayer time. Afterward children will transition into grade leveled small group time with activities and discussion. Small group time will be a special place for students to build spiritual and relational growth with their peers and adult leaders.

All children will be checked in using our electronic computer check in system. A name tag will be put on your child and you will receive a name tag with a corresponding number. For safety reasons, this name tag must be presented when picking up your child.

Summit (the Five Stones Student Ministry) is for those in grades 6th-12th. Our middle school and high school students meet on Sunday night.

Summit BASECAMP:
5:00-7:00pm
Location:
Cuthbertson High School
1400 Cuthbertson Road
Waxhaw, NC 28173

This is an ideal student environment for them to take their next step with God. This time will consist of social time, short large group teaching and time split into life groups for further discussion. This design frees our students up to use their gifts to serve on Sunday mornings while also giving plenty of time to build relationships during life groups.

Our Student Ministry desires to encourage students to know God and to take their next step with Him. The Student Ministry’s goal is for each student by the end of middle school to not only know God but why they believe the Gospel and how to share it with others. By the end of high school, we strive for each student to know God, why they believe the Gospel, know how to share it with others, and take it a step further by learning to disciple someone else in their life.

Hang Five

We hope you hear us say this a lot – it’s our way of asking you to stick around and give us 5 weeks. We realize that it’s really hard to understand the flow, feel or direction of anything without getting to experience it a little.

Five Stones Church is unique and has a great feel. When we say Hang 5, we’re actually saying, give us five weeks to show you what it’s like to be a part of our Five Stones Church family, we know you’ll love it! Staying 5 weeks also gives you enough time to hear our purpose as a church and see how it can radically impact your family and our world.

So give us 5 weeks and see if we are a fit for you and your family.

Here are some suggestions that you can do  that will help you get to know us during your first 5 weeks:.

  • Sign up to attend the Five Stones First Step and Next Step Classes.
  • Pray as a family about where God would have you connect.
  • Sign up to serve. (Serving is a great way to meet people within the Five Stones Community.)

After you have Hung Out for 5 Weeks we hope that we are a fit for you and your family.  If you are ready to partner with Five Stones we would ask that you respond at the end of one of our worship services or contact a Pastor about your decision. If you feel that after 5 weeks that we are not a good fit for you and your family please let us know.  We know how difficult it can be to find a church to partner with. Because of that we have intentionally established strong relationships with several area churches and would like to help you connect with another body.
