Outreach

Friday Social Services/Food Pantry Program

Our food pantry program has been going strong for many years, which we owe in part to the generosity of our members and neighbors.

Please consider donating the following:
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned vegetables
  • 5oz can(s) of tuna
  • 3-pack bar soap

Donations can be dropped off in the social services basket in front of the Chapel on Sunday mornings or on weekdays from 8:30 to 4:30. If you have a large number of items, we ask that you access the Ontario entrance for easier access.

(Loose change in our Sunday offering plates also benefits Old Stone’s food pantry program.)

Love Your Neighbor

Our Love Your Neighbor ministry assists our less-fortunate friends by providing them with toiletries and clothing essentials.

We are in need of the following items:
  • Razors (men’s and women’s)
  • Shaving cream
  • Shampoo
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Men’s t-shirts

Donations can be full-size or travel-size. Drop off your items at the front office on Sunday mornings or on weekdays between 8:30 and 4:30. Questions? Call the office at (216) 241-6145 or email info@oldstonechurch.org.

Cookies for Vets

Held in May, the Cookies for Vets initiative delivers baked goods to the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center on the east side of Cleveland. Packing of cookies takes place at Coffee Hour on the Sunday preceding Memorial Day. Cookies are delivered to the VA the following morning.

Homemade and store-bought cookies accepted. Sugar-free options are also requested for those who are diabetic or have other dietary restrictions.

Open Doors

As the oldest worship center in the city of Cleveland, Old Stone receives thousands of visitors each year who want to learn more about our mission and history. Our volunteer docents guide these guests through our Sanctuary and provide information on the church and its special position in the community. Open Doors takes place from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM each weekday (rain, snow, or shine); if you cannot stay for that length of time, we also accept different shifts in that timeframe. To sign up, please contact our administrative assistant Ashley Herhuth at (216) 241-6145 or email ashley@oldstonechurch.org with your preferred dates/times

Note: this position will require on-site training by a staff member.
