Thank you!

Sabbath School on Zoom
We have found a more cost-friendly application of Zoom for the church. We hope to get sabbath school leaders access soon so that weekly sabbath schools may be held online. More details to come soon!
If you are a sabbath school leader, and you would like to use Zoom to hold your sabbath school classes, please contact Benjamin Ermshar for more information and updates!

Weekly Service
Because we are still in Stage 3 of the Texas Conference contingency plan and abiding by local regulations and recommendations, the church will be closed this weekend. There will be a live stream of the church service starting at 11:00 am.

Please Continue to Give
The spread of the Corona Virus, the resulting quarantines and the economic impacts are affecting everyone, including the church. Though we may not worship together, please keep the church in mind and continue to give what you can to help preserve the church facilities. You do not need to physically attend church to give, and every little bit helps. Please continue to give to the church online using the Adventist Giving website or by mail. If each person were to give just $100 a month, we could meet the monthly Stonehill Church Budget.


COVID-19 Aid
With the impacts of COVID-19, you or others you know may need help paying for essential needs, finding food, or other services. AuntBertha lists free and reduced-cost resources in any zip-code within the U.S. Please share this with family, friends, and neighbors.

Stay Informed
