Hello Stonehill Church Family,
We look forward to worshiping with you this Sabbath!
“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” 2 Corinthians 7:1
Skate party! Come skate with us at the next Youth & Family Fun Night.
Please join the Stonehill Choir for their special Christmas cantata "Silence and the Sound". Admission is free! This year's performance will also feature the Stonehill SDA Church Children's Chorus. The Silence and the Sound is a Cantata for Christmas by Heather Sorenson. This is more than a re-telling of the nativity. This work explores both the mystery and the majesty of Christ's birth. Filled with original sacred songs and beloved carols, this innovative cantata is not only a beautiful concert moment, but it is a true worship experience. The richness of both contemporary and traditional elements, along with thoughtful narrations, make this work an excellent choice for blended worship styles, and the stunning orchestrations complete the experience. Dates:

Alpha SDA Church: 3016 E 51st St, Austin, TX 78723
December 15, 2018 at 11:00am (during regular service)

We need your help. The septic pump was clogged up again this week due to wipes in the lift station pump. Please, please, please, toilet paper and body waste are the only items that should be flushed. All other items are to go in the trash can since they can and will clog the pump and create major expense.
