Hello Stonehill Church Family,
We look forward to worshiping with you this Sabbath!
Wayne Hutchison passed away early this past week. Sarah Wolverton will be coordinating meals for the family. If you would like to help provide meals for the Hutchison family, contact Sarah at 512-626-1205 or Sarahjwolverton@hotmail.com. Thank you each one for your prayers and outpouring of love for the family.
The Young Adult class is coordinating the fellowship meal next Sabbath, January 21. With all the extra visitors here that day, the Young Adult class is asking for the help of the whole church in providing the food. Please each of you bring extra dishes of food so there will be sufficient food to provide for our guests. If any questions, please contact Kijana Knight-Torres at email@example.com.
The treasury team will be handing out donation (offering/tithe) receipts for the next three weeks in the lobby after church.
Pathfinders: Weather permitting, our Saturday meeting will be at Southwest Williamson County Regional Park at 3005 Co Rd 175, Leander, TX 78641. Here's a link: https://goo.gl/maps/t2NjwZm9hu62. Let's plan on meeting at 3pm at the trailhead of the Jim Rogers hiking path near the splashpad. We will be hiking, so bring water, and have a good pair of close toed shoes.
Fabiola's baby shower will be January 15 at 10:30am. She asks for diapers (pampers swaddlers) sizes newborn, size 1 and size 2 are still needed and boy clothes that are bigger than nine months. Baby shower will be at 2100 Coachlamp Dr, Cedar Park, TX 78613.
Women Bible Study: God has always sought a woman with these characteristics- a heart to change the world, passion to make a difference and a purpose for life, no matter how great or small. If this is your desire and are seeking a closer walk with God this year, please join our Women Bible Study every 1st and 3rd Tuesday @ 6pm. Address: 1013 Rutgers Dr. Pflugerville, 78660. We would love to have you join us as we study the women in the Bible and learn from their lives a lesson of faith. Contact Rhona Ballarta at 512-990-8251 if interested.

Adventurer Club is hoping to start a "grandbuddy" program in January. The idea is for each Adventurer and his or her family to connect with a senior citizen from our church family. Once a "grandbuddy" is connected, the Adventurer and his or her family will keep in touch with them at least once or twice a month with meaningful interactions such phone calls, cards, lunches together, shared social activities, exchanging small gifts, etc. I'm starting to gather names of seniors in our congregation to invite to be a part of this program. Could you please assist by either volunteering, if you are a senior citizen, or by suggesting some other seniors from our church family that may be interested? Even if the person does not speak English they could be included, as our Adventurer families are quite culturally diverse. Also, please don't let their transportation capabilities dissuade you from suggesting any person. God bless you and thank you in advance! :) For more information contact Laurie Chodorow.
Thank you to all who have contributed to the Adventurer club food drive. They will be accepting donation through January.
