Funding Our Mission
Special Financial Appeal: God has called Stone Hill Church to make disciples in Princeton and around the world. As the church has grown following the move to our current location, our ministry opportunities have expanded. We welcome new believers and help them to grow in their faith. The next generation of the church is being nourished spiritually, both the children of our regularly attending families and the members of the community who participate in VBS Camp and AWANA. We have helped plant a new congregation in Trenton. Members and staff counsel struggling families in the community and provide them with financial assistance. We support individual missionaries and other worthy programs around the world. The fruits of these efforts are a tremendous blessing to us. God has blessed the ministry of Stone Hill Church in many ways, one of which is through the faithful financial support of the congregation. This month we are conducting a special appeal titled Funding Our Mission. We must raise $100,000 in the next three weeks to fully fund the critical ministries that reach people with the gospel and disciple them.
Ministry thrives in the context of a generous congregation. Please support the work of the church, either online or in person through the month of June, above and beyond your usual giving. As always, you can give by cash, check, through online giving via the Loop or our Stone Hill app and website http://www.stonehillprinceton.org/giving. Contributions should indicate they are for “Funding Our Mission”; if you give electronically look for the dropdown menu.

Church Financial Update: Through the end of May, our church’s income year to date was $615,122. This figure is below budget and below prior year. The approved budget for 2018 called for a 7% increase in giving. After five months, our general fund income shows a 18% decrease from prior year. Our expenses this year total $891,084 which is $934 over budget though we paid several once-a-year bills this month. Our deficit this year is $275,962.
We are thankful for each one who gives.
