We have been committed to building strong marriages and families for over thirty-five years! Ron and Carol Johnson, our founding pastors, began ministering to troubled marriages in their home on Sunday nights. What started out as three couples looking for some answers exploded into over 100 people packing into their very modest home! God was moving powerfully, and people were hungry for more of the Lord.
After receiving a remarkable series of prophetic words from a variety of seasoned Christian leaders, Ron and Carol obeyed the Lord, and on the third Sunday in October, 1981, Living Stones was born with 34 people in attendance in the Johnson’s living room. After only three months, we outgrew their home and moved to the Knights of Columbus Hall in Cedar Lake, Indiana, where we stayed for almost three years.
After continual growth and blessing from the Lord, on October 4, 1984, we relocated to Eisenhower School in Crown Point, Indiana until the building at the corner of Pratt and Summit Streets would be completed. Our first service on our own property, in our own church building, was on Mothers' Day, 1991.
In the spring of 1995, we began building an educational facility for a children's ministry. We also added our Youth Center, where our junior and senior high school students gather for ministry and fellowship every Tuesday night.
In April of 2017, we broke ground for our latest renovation project - a large foyer, fellowship hall, and renovated children and youth wings.
We are grateful to the Lord for His amazing faithfulness and provision over the years and continue to be excited to see what the future will bring in Him. We welcome you to join us in this adventure!
