We’re already hearing great stories about people like Tyler, at our Braselton Campus. He recently graduated from the fire academy and he is inviting everyone he knows into a small group. He’s telling everyone who will listen, “you don’t have to believe to belong here at 12Stone.” The heart to see his friends’ lives transformed has already resulted in three friends accepting Christ and being baptized.
That’s what we’re talking about when we say each person at 12Stone should lead someone to Christ. It fires up your own faith and changes lives forever.
God has created each one of us to be a witness for Christ, sharing the good news that He is abundantly able to transform our souls. The church doesn't exist for a feel-good hour on a Sunday morning. We are the church and we exist to aid in rescuing souls.
If you would like to know how to share your faith with others, consider joining us for “How to Share Your Faith” Sunday Nights at 12Stone.
Because Jesus transformed Chelsey’s life she just had to share her story with her friends. Listen to how she led her friend, Michelle, to Christ in of all places, the high school restroom. You never know when and where people will be ready to hear the good news.
Families with special needs children celebrated the new 1 pm service designed just for their children. With a few building modifications and a lot of great volunteers, parents were able to worship together knowing their kids were being cared for in a safe and loving environment.
This fall we have 300 couples participating in Re-engage which is three times more than previous years. As we have expanded Re-engage from 1 to 7 campuses, couples are getting serious and making a serious time investment to see their marriage and family transformed. One story coming out of Re-engage is when a husband and wife restored their marriage, their daughter believed it was a miracle and accepted Christ!
Students in this generation are struggling more and more with depression and anxiety. Technology and social media easily give us a false sense of community and relationship and belonging while those deep needs are really going unmet. Investing in 12Stone's students by having student ministry "family dinners" is just one way we can transform family by supporting students.
We launched student dinners to build a sense of family and belonging and students are coming. At Central alone, we are going to have to split into two different rooms to accommodate the overflow, and we’re hearing great stories coming from our student ministry churchwide.
One of the ways 12Stone aims to transform families is to create a place for families with children with special needs. By having a service where we can provide care for these children and enable their parents to attend church together, we can give the opportunity for growth in faith and community.
