IN-&-OUT

In the age of social media, it’s easy to be part of a church but not share in fellowship.  With average Sunday attendance declining, most evangelicals attend worship service little more than twice a month.  As the world becomes smaller, our lives are becoming increasingly busy.  There are greater demands on productivity and more opportunities for distraction. 

At 3Stone, we want to be a community of believers that are not “In and Out”.  Instead, we desire to stand in solidarity as a family of faith, a community of love, and a people who serve with expectant hope. 

Join us as we explore together what this means!

Baptism & Member Transfer

Baptism & Member Transfer

OH HAPPY DAY!

We will be celebrating our new baptized brothers and sisters along with those transferring their church membership to 3Stone | NYCAC on Sunday, April 28. Please keep them all in your prayers. 

What a joy it is to witness and participate in the moment where new brothers and sisters proclaim God to be true and declare their commitment to follow Christ!

We believe baptism is intended for individuals who have received the saving grace of Jesus Christ’s atoning work while becoming His disciples. In obedience to Christ’s command and as a testimony to God, the church, oneself and the world; a believer should be immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Baptism is a visual and symbolic demonstration of a person’s union with Christ in the likeness of His death and resurrection. It signifies that a person’s former way of life has been put to death and depicts a release from the mastery of sin.

As a symbol, baptism illustrates a number of significant realities:

  1. Christ’s death and resurrection

  2. The disciple’s union with Christ in His death and resurrection

  3. The new life in which a disciple walks

  4. Cleansing and washing away of sin

We invite you to join us to witness and to celebrate this decision

  • There is a Chapel session Friday night, 2 sessions on Saturday, and 1 session on Sunday morning. There are also 2 small group times after the sessions on Saturday meant for you and your students to dive deeper into what the speaker has shared, as well as be a safe place for your students to talk about whatever it is they may be facing in their lives in a smaller, more familiar and personal group.

  • Saturday afternoon is left open for lots of free time for you and your students to play basketball, frisbee, soccer, dodgeball, sand volleyball, climb the rockwall, hang out in the game room, eat at the snack bar, ride the giant swing, test your balance skills at the high ropes course, and maybe even take a ride on the zipline into the lake (weather permitting, of course). Free time is meant to give your students a break, as well as for you to build relationships with your students through having some fun!

Don't Walk By 2019

In 2019, 3Stone/NYCAC will be serving as an anchor site to host Rescue Alliance's annual "Don't Walk By" citywide homeless outreach. Each anchor site will serve a hot meal, provide clothing, shelter assistance and medical care among other services to our guests. 

We are looking for 3Stone volunteers to participate so we can offer a hospitable and loving environment to our brothers and sisters at Rescue Alliance, other partner organizations and most importantly, the local homeless community. Please join us as we look to be a blessing to our community and continue to lift those who are in need up in prayer.

Candlelight Service

Candlelight Service

Join us for the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service!  

Invite a guest and bring your family in celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.


We had a wonderful night celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

How sweet it is remembering the gift of redemption and eternal relationship with God.

So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.”
