Developing loving relationships with Christ and our community

The Christmas Story
Isaiah 9:6-7, NIV
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the greatness of his government and peace here will be no end.  He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.  The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.

Stewardship in Giving

"The people rejoiced...for they had given freely and wholeheartedly to the Lord..."
1 Chronicles 29:9.

God's gift of love to us was the ultimate gift of his Son, Jesus Christ. The early gifts given to the Christ child included elaborate gifts from the wise men that supported the family for several years until they could return to Nazareth. The innkeeper provided a place to stay. Even the shepherds came from the fields to give encouragement and praise. Plan your special gift to your Lord during this Christmas season. 

You can give at Stonehill's Online Giving Page
