We place a high value on healthy marriages.
Premarital counseling is required if you would like to be married by a Five Stones Pastor. Premarital counseling consists of four to six, one hour sessions covering topics such as marriage roles, healthy conflict, finances, expectations, and intimacy. We recommend couples start premarital counseling at least four to six months out from the wedding date. If you would like to request a Five Stones Pastor to conduct your premarital counseling and officiate your wedding, please contact us.
We provide pastoral assistance with funeral, memorial, and graveside services for regular attenders and non-attenders, giving comfort and guidance to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.
The primary purpose of a funeral service is to celebrate life – a gift from God – and to encourage you in your time of grief. We desire to serve our community, offering compassion and fellowship during the crisis of death. You may request a particular Five Stones’ pastor, but we cannot guarantee that pastor’s availability. A minimum of one meeting with the family will be necessary for planning the service.
Funeral and/or graveside services require the involvement of a funeral home, which will make all necessary arrangements and provide all direction; we will provide ceremonial content and message.
We reserve the right to photograph and record church events, we also strive to ensure that photography and videography are used in a safe and positive way. To ensure the privacy of individuals and children, images will not be identified using full names or personal identifying information without written approval from the photographed subject, parent or legal guardian. We will not knowingly and intentionally post any photo, video or other recording that would be embarrassing, objectionable or hurtful to any clearly identifiable individual in the recording.
Additionally, if you see a photo on a Five Stones webpage or social media page that includes you or your child and would like it removed, please contact our Marketing and Communication Architect. Please note we cannot remove your image from video or live stream messages. Please understand that Five Stones has no control over the recording, use and posting of images or other media by non-church staff (e.g., by community members, news outlets) and no ability to remove such media from publications, including internet or social media sites, that are not run by Five Stones.
