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 January 2017
Family Promise of Greater Cleveland helps homeless families by providing temporary housing and stabilizing services such as employment search assistance and life-skills programs. Over the years, generous contributions have helped this organization maintain these services until stable employment and permanent homes can be found. Every year, many families achieve independence thanks to Family Promise.
Food Pantry Item of the Month
canned peas, corn, 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.
