Beauty is all around us...
Our own Stanly County
Sunday service has been changed to 10:30 am with hopes we will be in the sanctuary soon but until then we will continue with drive-in service.
We are now able to bring chairs and sit with our families in accordance with the COVID 19 guidelines.
We now have our FM transmitter so you can listen in your vehicle during Drive-in service on frequency 104.9 FM. Please bear with us as we "iron out the kinks" .
Wherever you are/go, please remember to wash your hands or use sanitizer frequently, wear masks and continue to maintain the "safe distance". Remember we do these safety measures because of love and concern for others.
We plan to continue to stream the service live on FB however we are have issues with our internet provider. Please check Facebook for our latest service.
Wear your costume on Saturday 31 October at 4:00pm. Each family participating will need to bring the following: a pumpkin to carve, your carving tool(s), plastic/disposable tablecloth to carve on, and a trash bag for scraps.
Prayer isn’t a ritual that depends on closing our eyes and putting on holy faces. We don’t have to kneel or sit. We can pray while walking, driving, or working. God responds to a two word cry for help in the middle of a busy afternoon, just like He does to a focused prayer time after reading Scripture in the morning. Praying doesn’t have to be complicated. God delights in any simple words we offer Him.
With your loving tithes and offerings our church can continue through this very trying time. You have a few options as to how to donate:
WNCCUMC.org: A giving portal is now available through the conference to submit tithes and offerings to any United Methodist Church within the Western North Carolina to make a donation or submit your tithe to Stony Hill UMC, simply use the DONATE ONLINE HERE button below:
Complete the form on the link, with “Stony Hill UMC” as the church, pastor as “‘Kaye Fry”, the amount you wish to donate, and the bank account or card information for payment. It will also ask you to designate the church fund ( such as General Fund, Missions, etc. ) Once a month, the conference will remit the donations to the specified church, minus the 2.9% convenience fees (unless you choose to add the amount of the fees to your donation). The 2.9% Convenience fees are charged by the credit card companies. No fee is being charged by the Conference, and there are no additional fees or service costs for the churches. This is a free resource from the Conference to our churches. We thank you for your generosity and look forward to the day we can worship together in our sanctuary! If you have an immediate need the church can help with, please let us know!

Dear Congregation of Stony Hill:
Our hope is that by not gathering in large groups we can change the course of Covid-19 virus and prevent more cases.
If these are typically the Sundays that you contribute your tithe to the church, you can mail your check to the church address at 28996 Stony Hill Road, Albemarle, NC 28001."
Even though we are not gathering for worship, our mission and ministries continue.
I will evaluate other opportunities that will allow us to worship together.
Please be in prayer for all who are impacted by this virus in ways that we may not yet even understand. I trust that God is with us and we can hold onto his words of comfort from Isaiah 41:10 "do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand."
Please call and forward this to others so that we can make sure the word gets out to everyone.
