GOSPELTRANSFORMATION

Capstone doesn't measure success by how many people we have in the seats on Sunday mornings, 

but instead of how the Gospel is transforming our city.  
We believe that the church is not called just to meet on Sundays and nothing more.  We see in the Bible that when people live as Christ is their Lord, the places where they work, live and play begin to be transformed by what
Jesus is doing on the inside.  
We strive to see the Gospel transform our city because it is being multiplied in our neighborhoods, schools, ball parks, and city streets.  Here are some ways that we are seeing the Gospel multiplied and helping transform our community.


Matthew 5:16

 "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works
and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

FIKECENTER

After several years of serving the community of Fountain Inn, we continued to struggle with breaking the cycle of poverty we saw in our city.  We visited with the Frazee Dream center in Greenville, SC and began to get a grasp of leading the next generation to care about education, core values, family and success.  We felt this would be the best way to see our community changed for the better.  This lead us to create the Fountain Inn Kid Enrichment (FIKE) Center.  But we didn't just want to create a church program, but to create a movement in our city.  


The FIKE Center is now its own nonprofit organization that partners not only with various churches in the community, but corporate donors, other nonprofits, and schools.  FIKE is broken into two main areas of service for the children of Fountain Inn- After School Care and Mentoring


AFTERSCHOOLCARE

Every day over 30 students attend the the FIKE after school program.  These students spend time learning the core values of FIKE, doing homework, playing games, reading, and special activities.  Each day the students are given a Healthy Choice meal for dinner.  The students who are a part of the FIKE after school program have not only seen an increase in their standardized testing scores, but in their overall demeanors as kids who are cared for. 


MENTORING

The lack of positive mentors for elementary aged children across the United States  has created a generation that is simply wandering in the wilderness.  The goal of FIKE mentors is to spend 30 minutes each week with their mentees.  This can happen before school, at lunch, or other times of the day.  The idea is to begin to give children who are in need of guidance, a true guide.   


"Investing in a child is the best way I know to tangibly alter a future generation. Mentoring a child requires such a small investment on your part as a mentor, but you end up reaping a huge rate of return on that investment."  
Robin Carter FIKE Mentor

CAPSTONECITYEVENTS

Throughout the year Capstone has various community events we are a part of, in order for the Gospel to be put on display.  These events are not intended for people to come to our church, but to allow those who may be far from the Lord to see the church in action. 

  • SOS | ServingonSaturday

    Capstone gathers together once a month to reveal the transformation of the Gospel in us and through us. SOS is a time that we have blocked out on Saturday mornings to go into our city and be Christ. It can range from cutting up a tree in a single mom's yard to building a wheelchair ramp for a widow. We will do things for city organizations and other churches. We believe that serving our city and being the church is even more important than just coming to church. If you would like to volunteer or learn more about SOS, contact Laura Barrineau [laura@capstonechurch.net]

  • CROSSTRAININGSPORTSCAMP

    Cross Training Sports Camp is a community wide event for Preschool (3yr to 5yr) and Grade School Children.  Crossing Training Sports Camp is a high energy, fast paced, fun filled, Christ centered time of recreation and celebration.  


    CTSC is a four night camp, that last two hours each night.  We break the two hours into several sessions.  We start off the a Large Group Session with a Biblical lesson and music.  Then there is a Small Group time broken up by age and gender to discuss the Large Group teaching.  And finally there is the track time.  The Track Times are various recreation and fun activities.

CommunityPartners

We don't believe we should recreate the wheel.  Capstone partners with various groups who are already meeting specifics needs in our community.  We love coming alongside groups who are meeting the spiritual and physical needs of those in our city.  Here are a few of those partners.

  • JAMESMONROEMISSIONHOUSE

    James Monroe Mission House is a ministry of Trinity United Methodist in Fountain. The Mission House serves over 200 families in our community each week by providing free food, clothing, and seasonal help. We do regular food and supply drives for needs at the Mission House.
