God delights in obedience
Below Pastor Jin shares about some exciting opportunities, to learn, grow and serve, here at Stone Hill:
First, I have asked our Deacon Management Team (DMT) to describe our Serve Table in the atrium. The DMT writes,
In every family, members have differing needs. Jesus said, 'whoever would be great among you must be your servant…, as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life…’ (Mt 20:26-29)
Our atrium Serve Table features ministry needs. Christians discover that God has given us spiritual gifts to use in service to others. If you are a regular attendee of Stone Hill, it is a privilege to serve one another regularly and as we are able, but it has sometimes been hard to know how. The Serve Table helps us:
Learn about featured ministries and ministry needs.
Sign up for information on volunteering
Discover our spiritual gifts to exercise
Connect with ministry leaders
Pray for our mission and vision to make dedicated followers of Jesus Christ
Let us use whatever gift we have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms (I Pet. 4:10). Meet us at the Serve Table today!
Secondly, I would like to invite you to a set of newly designed classes in the Fall of 2019:
Stone Hill Believes: Stone Hill Membership Class

The class (formerly known as Stone Hill 101) is designed for newcomers to survey the history, doctrine, vision, government, and the membership process of Stone Hill Church.

The class designed for all who are interested in learning about how Stone Hill Church cares for its members through various ministries.

Farewell to Friends: Thank you to Jonathon Rodriguez, our Princeton Theological Seminary (PTS) Summer Intern. Officially, Jon's last Sunday as our intern is August 11, so we want to thank him for serving our church: helping setup for Camp, working with our teachers and teaching our children. Jon will continue to teach for the next couple of weeks before he returns to PTS for his Middler year. Thank you, Jon - job well done, we enjoyed having you as part of our staff!
Farewell to Brandt Wong who will be moving. Brandt's artwork can be viewed in the atrium through today.
