Each month Old Stone Church designates one mission partner as our focus of the month.
All loose change in the offering plate that month will go toward the selected project.
Mission Focus for October 2016
Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) is an outreach ministry that teams up (networks) with local community organizations, agencies and churches to help people in need. Someone seeking help is referred to Love INC by a network church or agency, the legitimacy and extent of the need is assessed, and the person is connected to the appropriate aid through a list of resources from various support services. Assistance with food, clothing and utilities are just some of the needs that can be addressed. Love INC relies on the financial support of member churches, like Old Stone, for its operating expenses, and in return, the church’s support resources are increased when teamed with Love INC.
Food Pantry Item of the Month
On Friday mornings (except the first Friday of the month) from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. Old Stone operates a food pantry. Like other food centers, our demand has been increasing dramatically over the past few months. As unemployment benefits run out, foreclosures and layoffs continue, the demand here will rise. Your donations of food on Sunday help us reach more needy people. Just imagine what we could do if every person who came to worship brought one can of our targeted food once a month. Now think about what could be done if everyone brought one can each Sunday – just one can. That might mean anywhere from 200 to 800 cans of tuna, or peas or spaghetti sauce.
