Church notes

Upcoming Informational Meeting: The Board of Elders' informational meeting scheduled for March 29 is postponed to Sunday, April 5, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting, including an opportunity for Q&A from the congregation, will be conducted virtually. Details on accessing and participating in the meeting will be provided by Friday, April 3. All congregants--members and attenders--will be welcome to attend and ask questions. The meeting is informational only; there will be no voting or conducting of formal business.

Virtual Life Continues: Pastor Matt and Executive Director, Doug Megill, want to clarify our plans for April. We expect all church events to be conducted virtually at least through the month of April. We plan to reevaluate the situation on April 21 for the month of May. Meanwhile, your leaders are seeking to get better week after week in how we communicate with and care for the congregation in this virtual world. Our Sunday morning service can be viewed via Facebook at 9:30 a.m. We will also make the video available on our YouTube channel at 11:10 a.m. Audio portions of the Sermons continue to be made available on Monday on our church website. The bulletin for the upcoming service can be viewed here each week. You are also encouraged to sign up for the Stone Hill Daily Connector to receive a dose of "Help, hope, and humor for this virtual season of gospel life together."

Church Financial Needs: General Fund and Benevolence Fund

Despite the cancellation of our weekly worship services, we have ongoing ministry expenses, including but not limited to community outreach, benevolence, staff, building expenses, mortgage payments, and our support of global missions. We will not be receiving offerings by passing the plate for the next several weeks, but we ask that our members and regular attenders continue to support our church’s General Fund. We want to be good stewards by continuing to fulfill our financial obligations and serve the needs of our congregation during this public health crisis.

Thankfully, the sufficient funding of Stone Hill’s Benevolence ministry has allowed us to provide financial assistance to many families within our congregation and community up until now.  At this time, the Benevolence team needs additional funding so that we may continue to provide for families with financial needs. The funds will also allow us to care for those who are impacted by reduced work or the medical costs associated with Coronavirus. So, prayerfully consider giving to Benevolence, but it should be over and above your regular giving. 

There are several ways you can continue your support:

  1. You may mail your donation to the church at 1025 Bunn Drive, Princeton, NJ 08540.
  2. You can set up one-time or recurring payments from a checking account.
  3. Or, you may give online via PushPay as some of you presently do. If you’re new to PushPay, you can connect by clicking on the “Giving” link on the top right of our church’s home page or text stonehillprinceton to 77977.

If you have questions or need help setting up your online giving, please feel free to contact either me or Debbie Monn, our Financial Administrator. We would be glad to help you.

Thank you in advance for your faithful support of our ministry and the Gospel!
