Living Stone Community Church was born on January 26, 2003 with 12 members from the former Evangelical Free Church of Standish.
The first church planting pastor was Jason Jones along with his wife Erika and their two children.
The revitalizing church plant was supported by the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Many mission teams and Southern Baptist churches from the area helped with renovating the facilities and providing evangelistic services to raise the awareness of the new church in the community of Standish.
The foundation of Living Stone Community Church was built upon the Lord Jesus Christ and the founding pastor challenged his people to be obedient to the Word of God, to share the Gospel with the community, and to have a heart for missions around the world.
From the very moment the church was instituted, God has blessed the efforts of His people and He has faithfully added to the number of those being saved.
In 2004, the leadership of LSCC felt the need to provide two morning worship services to accommodate a larger gathering of people.
In 2005, LSCC became self-supported and is eternally grateful for the the funds given by Southern Baptists and other generous donors.
In 2006, God called Pastor Jason to a church in Georgia. A pastor search committee was elected to serve the church in finding Living Stone Community Church’s second pastor.
While the church was without a pastor, the members of Living Stone Community Church were faithful to pull together to carry out the work of the ministry.
In June of 2007, the church called Joey Marshall to become the second pastor of Living Stone Community Church. Pastor Joey along with his wife Rose, began their ministry at LSCC in October of 2007. Since that time, God has continued to bless the efforts of His people and the work of the ministry at LSCC.
In October 2009, God opened a door for LSCC to move from Oak Hill Road to the old paint ball facility on Route 35. This was a huge answer to prayer as this space gives LSCC room to grow and expand as the Lord leads.
It is amazing to sit back and see what God has done and what He is doing. “To God be the glory for the great things that He has done!”
