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 2016
Camp Ho Mita Koda
Accredited by the American Camp Association, Camp Ho Mita Koda offers programs that are specially designed to teach youngsters with diabetes how to self-manage their condition through personal responsibility and learning how to make healthy life choices. Camp programs include arts & crafts as well as a variety of physical fitness oriented activities. An on-site trained medical team, including a registered dietitian, oversees the diabetes of each camper. Founded in 1929, Camp Ho Mita Koda is the oldest camp in the United States for children ages 4–17 with diabetes, and one hundred percent of all donations remain here in Northeast Ohio.
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.
