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 November 2017
Love Your Neighbor
Love Your Neighbor is a new ministry formed by the Deacons to help our home-less friends, and members of the congregation, who are in need of hygiene/personal items, and winter clothing essentials. You can help by donating gently-used men’s and women’s gloves, hats, scarves and socks. We are also in need of personal items such as travel size/smaller size sham-poo, soap, deodorant, razors, shaving cream and lotion. For more information on our new ministry and a detailed list of needed items, please contact Karen Davis or Alynn Mahle.
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.
