Capstone Connections New Members Class
At Capstone the body does the real work of the gospel.
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.
It’s the church’s job to equip YOU, the saints, to do the work of ministry. We want to help you achieve your potential in Christ.
If you desire to make a deeper commitment to Capstone Church we offer a class to help you get better acquainted with the church and what we believe. In this personal venue, church leadership and the new members get to know one another and all questions regarding the church are answered.
Capstone Connections will give you a solid foundation and join you to Capstone Church. Contact the church office at 817-336-2687 for more information.
Our next Membership Class is on Sunday, January 31st, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, with dinner & childcare provided upon sign up, which you can do online by clicking here.
What are Connect Groups?
Taking the example of Acts 2:42, Capstone Church has incorporated monthly group meetings to aid in the spiritual development and growth of the church body. The church in Acts met in the temple (church building) and from HOUSE TO HOUSE (Acts 2:46, 5:42, 20:20). New members are encouraged to find a group near them and get involved.
What Happens at the Connect Groups?
We believe that getting to know one another is a crucial part of church involvement. Connect Group Meetings are a time for fellowship and interaction. Along with singing and sharing, members discuss the Bible together. Then individual prayer requests are prayed over by the group. Afterward, snacks and drinks are enjoyed to end the meeting with lighthearted fun and fellowship.
Who Can Attend?
ANYONE! The groups are made up of families, singles, teenagers and children. While most are members of Capstone, many interested friends and neighbors also attend.
When Do Connect Groups Meet?
Connect Groups meet on the third full week of every month (leading up to the fourth Sunday). The groups also have exciting mid-month fellowship activities which are special times for fun, fellowship and evangelism.
Where Can I Find a Connect Group?
Stop by the Connect Center in the foyer or call the church office at
817-336-2687. Request the Connect office when you call.

If you are attending church, but not serving in some way, then you are only doing half of what God has called you to do! Each of us is given gifts and talents that the Lord has intended us to use for His glory. Capstone is committed to helping each member find their gifts and make room for them to use them within the church body and the surrounding area. So, do you want to get plugged in and serving? Here’s how!
First, join us at our next Capstone Connections meeting to become a member of our church family! Secondly, attend our 5 week Spiritual Authority leadership class with Pastor Roy Chapman. Third, you need to undergo a background check, and lastly pass MinistrySafe, a course about watching for the signs and cues of different forms of abuse involving minors. You can contact the church office if you have any questions about these things.
