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 2014
North Presbyterian Church
North grew out of Old Stone Church in the 1850s. Within the past two years, North Church has moved from its original building at East 40th and Superior into shared space with Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries (LMM) at East 45th and Superior. North worships on Sunday morning in the large meeting room. During the week Pastor Charlie Hurst works with LMM helping resolve disputes at the 2100 Lakeside shelter. North is able to use the new kitchen facilities at the LMM headquarters to prepare their after-church meal each Sunday. Many of those who have been in the shelter have now found a worshipping community at North Church.
Your coins in the offering plate during the month of November will go to support the ministry, particularly to the homeless, at North Church.
Food Pantry Item of the Month
15 oz. canned peas
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.
