ALL SAINTS DAY

All Saints Day will be celebrated at all four services on Sunday, November 6. Names of our loved ones who have passed away since last All Saints Day will be read and a candle will be lit in their memory. Stone River will host a lunch in the Fellowship Hall at noon for families of these sweet loved ones.


NOVEMBER IMPACT MISSION : FACES

FACES was established in 1951 to meet emergency medical and health needs of abused and neglected children of Morgan County.

Just as the problems of poverty, mental illness, mental illness, teenage pregnancy, drug/alcohol addiction, and domestic violence have increased, so has the number of children requiring out of home care for their safety and protection.

Until the world finds a way to alleviate all the problems that can lead a family to become so dysfunctional that child abuse becomes a way of life, we will continue to need community support for the FACES of Morgan County’s Abused and Neglected Children.

 

Please bring bibs, diapers, coats, or pajamas for children 0-18 years old to the reception area during the month of November.


FRIENDSHIP HOUSE LUNCH

Friendship House provides support and friendship to adults suffering with severe mental illness. This lunch out hosted by Stone River is a special time to serve these sweet people and interact with them through yard games in the gym. Please consider volunteering!

HUNGER RELIEF MINISTRY

We are so excited for Stone River to partner with the efforts of JePau Outreach Ministries at Solomon Temple by supporting Hunger Relief Ministry every third Saturday.

 

The folks at Solomon Temple work at this ministry rain or shine every Saturday and have been for many years! They are thrilled to have us come along side and believe that we are all "better together"! Please feel free to go help any Saturday. We will be going as a group once a month every third Saturday to start. Our next Saturday to go together as a group from Stone River will be November 19.


echo PRAYER MINISTRY

As we are navigating this new season of ministry together, we are going to implement a new way to stay connected in prayer with our church family.  A page on the Echo prayer app has been created to easily share concerns and pray for our church!  If you download the app, you will be able to follow The Church at Stone River Feed and see all of the concerns of our church members that we would like to lift up in prayer.  You can interact with the prayers listed on the Feed or you can submit your own prayer requests by emailing them to echo@churchatstoneriver.com 

As you share your prayer concerns, please…

- Have the direct party’s permission to share the situation with the church

- Specify if you would like to share with just the pastoral staff or the whole church

- Only share the information you feel comfortable spreading with others

Click here for the free app

We pray that by launching our Echo Prayer Ministry we may fulfill this image of our prayers being spread and echoed by our church family around us.

TRADE FAIR MARKETPLACE

Trade-Fair Marketplace is coming to Stone River 

every second Sunday from 9-12:30pm in the Fellowship Hall

We are the first and only nonprofit fair trade enterprise in Alabama.  Our retail store sells unique handcrafted items from more than 30 developing nations around the world.  Each item is handmade by artisans (many are women who belong to fair trade cooperatives) using natural materials, reflecting the countries in which they were made.  Fair living wages are paid directly to the artisans, allowing them to obtain basic needs for themselves and their families including food, healthcare and education.  Our sole mission is to help eradicate poverty by promoting the economic progress of people in these developing countries.  We give all profits from our sales back to organizations that share our same vision.  Since our beginning, we have donated over $250000 to 40 organizations such as Bead for Life, Living Waters, Dining for Women, Amazima, Ghana Relief,  Women's Bean Project, The Fistula Foundation, Friends of Refugees and Kiva (micro-loan projects).
