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 2016
Front Steps Housing & Services
Front Steps provides a safe and secure environment for individuals and families within Cuyahoga county. They help with affordable housing, client-centered case management, and supportive services including workforce training, financial literacy, healthy living and nutrition. Their services also involve education assistance as well as substance abuse groups, counseling and therapy. Programs and services offered in this center are designed to teach the skills and develop the confidence necessary to achieve independent living.
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.
