So often when we think of church – we think of a building or the place we attend services on Sundays. But actually — it’s people that are the real church. We are the church! And, to BE THE CHURCH God intends for us to be, it takes you and me actively pursuing the purpose that He has for us — individually and collectively.
Here are some ways we at Stone are activating our faith to BE THE CHURCH:
Join us Sundays @ 8:45, 10:00 & 11:15am, or watch one of our services online. You can enjoy services wherever you!
We believe missions trips are life changing, and we want to provide opportunities for as many people as possible to experience what these are like. So, we’re adding more missions trips, plus providing student scholarships to offset costs for our young people to participate who otherwise might not be able to. What will happen on the trips? We’ll build churches (hands-on labor plus materials), do outreach projects and fulfill the biblical mandate to ‘Go.’ Our goal is to send 200 people on missions trips over the next five years.
LOCAL COMPASSION OUTREACH
We’ve adopted Garfield Elementary School here in Yakima. We are partnering with them in a number of ways — assisting teachers, spending time with students, improving their campus, special events, supplies and much more. Want to help? Join our Garfield team!
