A Prayer for Wisdom for our Graduates

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5)

Dear God, we ask that you help our children to walk in your wisdom and grace. We pray for spiritual eyes and discernment in all things. Help them to be wise leaders and influencers in this generation, not conformed to the world, but transformed by your power. We ask that you would equip them with all that they need to make a difference for your purposes. Help them to live as salt and light in a dark world that so desperately needs to know your truth. We ask for your power to help them to walk continually in honesty and integrity. Build within them deep godliness, that they would be more concerned about their character than their reputation. We pray that they would seek to bring honor to You throughout their lives, that they would have a vision and heart for the world. Extend their boundaries and give them incredible influence with people and nations. Make their hearts and spirits open to every plan and purpose you have for them, and to be willing to boldly go wherever You call. Amen

How We're Helping

We are a community-based organization focused on helping make the world around us a better, and happier place. We have an outreach program where we help local students with our Backpack Ministry. In association with many local churches in Albemarle and our surrounding area, we are blessed to be able to help with the Soul Food at Grace Place ministries. With the help of our tireless volunteers, we also sponsor trips for our Youth students. And for our youngsters, in the summer months we have our yearly Bible School. 

If you have an interest and or ideas please let us know and you are always welcome to come be with us.

Thank You

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.

Be safe!
