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 July 2017
Front Steps Housing & Services
Front Steps is an organization committed to providing a wide range of services to support clients in moving from homelessness to safe, affordable long-term housing. Previously only open to homeless women for a fixed period of time, the facility now serves women, men and families in Cuyahoga County who are mentally disabled and/or economically disadvantaged, and provides a permanent supportive place to call home. Case managers assist clients with obtaining and maintaining employment or other income and addressing mental health and physical health needs. In addition, the programs help their clients develop skills in money management, housekeeping, and integrating into the community.
Food Pantry Item of the Month
3-bar packs of soap
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.
