An Active Heart. Immeasurable Results
For more than 200 years, Old Stone Church has been committed to serving those throughout our diverse community. This commitment extends to organizing food drives, pledging resources to build homes, and providing basic necessities to those most vulnerable. Our community outreach efforts truly know no limits or bounds.
Led by our Mission & Urban Wellness committee, Old Stone Church's community outreach efforts extend to serving more than a dozen organizations each year.
These organizations are referred to as our Mission Partners and are a mix of established nonprofits and spirited startup organizations who have a clearly defined Mission to support, serve, and provide for their communities most basic needs.
10% of Old Stone Church's annual operating budget goes towards supporting our Mission Partners each year.
