Interested in Becoming a Member of StoneWater Church?

We believe membership is an important step in the maturing life of a follower of Jesus. The Bible reminds us that we are not designed to do life alone. We are to be connected to the body of Christ, to be part of a family, and use our unique gifts to grow His Kingdom.

What is Membership?2022-10-27T12:16:02-05:00

In the simplest form, it’s a way for your pastors and leaders to know who is in the family, who needs care, and who needs equipping to fulfill their purpose. It is also a commitment that you make to live out the truths of the scriptures with one another and be a part of a family of believers.

How do I find a group?2022-10-27T12:20:06-05:00

At StoneWater, we work to ensure that if you are part of a Group, you will be known and loved. We are created to be in relationship with others in community as we navigate the twists and turns of daily life. Groups are where we interact with God’s Word, pray and encourage one another with God’s Spirit, and carry out “the one anothers” of scripture with God’s people.
