Pastor’s Welcome Message
Our Vision at Living Stone Methodist Church is: Growing in Christ, Our Living Stone. Glorifying Christ, Making Him Known! Living Stone Methodist Church is built upon the Bible, God’s unfailing Word. We remind our people to love God, to have an intimate relationship with Him personally and to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. We are a family-oriented community. We also focus on students’ ministry and Sunday School for young children. Through different Small Group meetings every Tuesday at different locations, ministry with the University students every Wednesday and Thursday and a Senior Citizens group meeting every Thursday morning, our people come together to learn and fellowship together to grow in their faith, and to live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.

NOW A LOCAL CONFERENCE CHURCH
The founder of Methodist Movement, John Wesley’s idea of bringing the message of God to where people are and to share the good news with them gives rise to “church planting” in our present-day context. Living Stone Methodist Church (LSMC) is one such example. LSMC has its origin in Bandar Utama Methodist Centre (BUMC) at Kayu Ara Business Park, PJ in September 2011 until it was re-located to the current premises in Cova Square, Kota Damansara and re-named the Living Stone Methodist Church on 16th February 2014
A LOCAL CONFERENCE CHURCH
LSMC was constituted a local conference church on 9th August 2015, making the day a historic and memorable day. The significance of being a local conference church means LSMC has grown from infancy to adulthood, seeking financial independence from the sponsoring church, Trinity Methodist Church Petaling Jaya. It will have its own pastor and its own committee to manage the affairs of the church. The church will depend on its congregation to support all its ministries to spearhead growth. It is a new beginning for LSMC as a full-fledged church and to move forward in faith and zeal, trusting in God to be the sovereign provider of all needs, as proclaimed in Zechariah 4:6: “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.” So be it, may the Spirit of God rain down His blessings upon His young church with “water and to nurture its growth,” bringing many fruitful returns in due season
THE INAUGURATION SERVICE
The inauguration service was graced by TRAC President, The Rev. Dr T. Jeyakumar, whose sermon was on “The Deficient Church” with reference to Revelation 2:1-7. Other church dignitaries present were the District Superintendent, The Rev. Ricky Ho, Pastor-in-Charge of Trinity Methodist Church PJ, The Rev. Dr Timothy Ong, Associate Pastor of TMCPJ, The Rev. Ting Moy Hong and Pastor-in-Charge of LSMC, Pastor Aaron Ng. The service was blessed with the presence of the MSF Choir from the sponsoring church to enhance the spirituality of the occasion
The sermon’s emphasis was on a deficient church, where God could raise up a church or inversely, He could cause the church to decay because of its imperfection, if it lost its first love in God and people, even though it could be diligent in many other ways. He quoted an example of this happening to St Mary’s Church in Dublin, Ireland, where even John Wesley himself preached in 1747. Subsequently, the defunct church was closed and sold. It was converted into a food/beverage and bar outlet.
Referring to Revelation 2:1-7, the Apostle John saw seven stars and seven lamp stands (representing seven angels and seven churches), with Ephesus being one of the seven churches. Ephesus was once considered an exemplary church with commendable, diligent work: patience, tolerance, endurance, discernment and resistance against heresy. However, it lost its first love in God and people. To remove its guilt and imperfection, Ephesus must remember its failings and make good its shortfalls through repentance and return to its original fellowship in order to be saved.
Of course there are other churches which failed due to various other reasons. After the sermon the TRAC President presented those 52 persons who constituted their membership of the Constituting Church Conference. When it came time for the nomination and election for the various posts, the District Superintendent, Rev. Ricky Ho, conducted the process. The service and section concluded on time and guests and church members were entertained to food and beverages at the corridor of the sanctuary.
LSMC must not lose sight to be an exemplary church, based on an improved Ephesus model, with love for God and people, not forgetting the dictum of John Wesley to “do all the good we can, in all the ways we can, for all the people we can, as long as we can”. To God be the glory.
