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 December 2016
Compassionate Friends Fund
The Old Stone Church is very actively involved in supporting the many causes that help our community and our various mission partners. Not to be overlooked is the fact that sometimes our brothers and sisters in faith within our own congregation need a little help, too. The Compassionate Friends Fund was established for just this reason. Assistance with emergencies and other unexpected expenses can be of great comfort to those who are really in a bind and may have nowhere else to turn. The donations to this fund can go a long way in aiding a member of our church family.
Food Pantry Item of the Month
5 oz. canned tuna
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.
