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 April 2015
Mission Workers in Egypt
Old Stone supports two short-term missionaries volunteering in Egypt. Both are ordained pastors and are finishing their second year of Presbyterian mission work. One serves as the International Relations Representative for the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo. The other is a Mission Interpretation Officer for the Synod of the Nile, working with schools, clinics and new church development in Egypt.
Loose coins in the offering plate in April will help support these mission workers.
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.
