MINISTRIES

Youth – Impact Nation

Stones Church has a thriving Youth Ministry for teens!  We call the ministry “Impact Nation” because our teens are a group of individuals who have been impacted by God and mandated to go and make an impact.  Impact Nation exists to be the destination of choice for our youth, their peers, and any teenager that we can reach.  We aspire to connect our youth to each other and to Jesus in the most innovative, creative ways possible.  We also aspire to create a network of young people, impacted, and prepared to impact our nation’s youth.  

We meet: Every Wednesday night – Kalamazoo Campus – 7 pm.

Children - Light Agents

At Stones Church we are raising up every child to be a “Light Agent.” Every child will encounter the presence and love of God in Children’s Ministry.  Our mission is to establish every child in the Word with a strong understanding of who they are in God and what it means to be a “Light Agent.”  Therefore, we equip every child with curriculum and special activities that are fun, practical, and easy to comprehend and apply to their daily lives. Our “Light Agents” engage in the world around them, carrying the Light of God and His Truth into the darkness. We have special activities and experiences for our children each month and an annual event for our children and the community at large.

If you have questions, please email: lightagents@stoneschurch.com

Our Children’s Ministry serves:
Nursery: Ages 6 weeks to 24 months old in small groups.
Preschool: Ages 3 & 4 year olds through stories, puppets etc.
Kindergarten: Age 5 through a variety of classroom media & group settings.
1st-6th Grade:  through exciting super services and classroom settings.

Prophetic Arts

We were ALL made in God’s image and carry His DNA in seed form to create, but we haven’t always understood that it’s our call to impact culture through the message that’s in us. The Arts have always had the power to capture the attention, imagination and heart of the people.  We are in the midst of a NEW RENAISSANCE and God is waking up the latent artist in all of us to BECOME our true essence! To connect with Heaven, create in His Presence (free from performance) and release transformation…reflecting the glory of God everywhere we go. Releasing supernatural healing and innovative ideas in the Market Place as well as in the Church. The Prophetic Arts Ministry is building a community of like-minded believers and calling all artists, writers, poets, musicians, and designers who desire to partner with Holy Spirit and flow in the prophetic… connecting people to God, people to people and heaven to earth.   If you have interest in this ministry, please contact us at 269.344.7135, ext. 31

Worship & Band

The power of art, drama and music through the Performing Arts has been used over centuries to convey the great message of Christ; His love for man, the fall of man, our redemption through the sacrifice of His life and the promise of an abundant life here on earth and in the life to come. What a love story!   Through praise and worship and music we try to create a vivid picture of His love, His story to redeem man back to himself and to connect the heart of man to God.  Stones Church’s Worship and Band creates an awesome worship experience each service that sets the atmosphere for the spoken Word. If you have questions, please call 269.344.7135, ext. 31

Rehearsal – Worship & Band:

Kalamazoo Campus: Every Thursday, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Drama

Drama is a powerful way to tell a story and communicate the love our Father God has for us.

Stones Church has an amazing team of writers, actors, storytellers, and spoken-word artists who are dedicate to the art of drama. Whether our own Performing Arts Pastor or a collaboration of our drama team and other producers write the story told in the form of drama, the end result is a life-changing experience that impacts lives and creates an experience that lasts a lifetime.

Our Drama team often performs as part of our worship services. Special drama programs are held at various times during the year. Drama ministry is recognized as an integral and visual part of our ministry and not an “activity.”

Auditions and rehearsals are held as needed for a specific ministry performance. This information is always announced in advance.
