Living Stones Church, a church in Kona Hawaii, is a diverse group of individuals united by a common love for Jesus. Our goal is to become the kind of church described in the Bible: a culture of faith.

What are Connect Groups?

Connect Groups are small groups that meet once a week. They’re a place to share life and support each other through fellowship, study, and prayer. As a church, we want to be in real community, knowing what is going on in each other’s lives on an on-going basis. Life can be hard and it was never meant to be lived in isolation! Each connect group has its own focus and flavor, but all share the same goal of encouragement and strengthening one another in the love of Jesus.

How do they work?

All of our groups operate on the semester system to give you easy entry & exit points and the opportunity to explore different group options during the year. Fall connect groups run September-December, winter groups run January-March, and there is a short spring term April-May.  During the summer, we do mid-week church-wide events instead of small groups.

Choosing a Group

At the beginning of each semester, we’ll have information available on each of the groups and sign up opportunities both right here online, and at both church sites after every service. Plugging into a group is easy- just sign up & go! Feel free to try out different groups for the first few weeks and find one that you like.

The gospel costs nothing, but it demands everything. It's all or nothing! Many of us believe we are following Jesus, but in reality we've mistakenly invited Jesus to follow us. The challenge is to go all in by fully surrendering the entirety of our lives to the lordship of Jesus Christ. That is when the true adventure begins!
