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 June 2015
Front Steps Housing and Services, formerly known as Transitional Housing Inc. (THI), is a 60-bed facility located at 1545 West 25th Street in Cleveland. The name “Front Steps” serves as a symbolic reference to home, and represents the starting place for those seeking new beginnings.
Previously only open to homeless women for a fixed period of time, the non-profit facility now serves women, men and families in Cuyahoga County who are mentally disabled and/or economically disadvantaged. Front Steps provides permanent supportive housing, case management and other services that promote financial literacy, education and independence.
Any loose change in the June offering plates will go to help support Front Steps.
Food Pantry Item of the Month
canned green beans
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.
