Making Dedicated Followers
The congregation at Stone Hill is committed to making dedicated followers of Jesus Christ in Princeton, the Northeast, and the whole world. That means we are committed to reaching out and serving in our church and community as well as partnering with global churches and missionaries. Contact the Global Outreach Team for more details about Global Outreach at Stone Hill.
There are many new opportunities to serve the body of Christ in the current season. Both virtual and in-person opportunities are available.

We are committed to reaching out and serving in our community. We have the God-given responsibility to love our neighbors by caring for their spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. We are committed to sharing the love of Jesus that has changed our lives with others.

- Moving conversations from casual to meaningful, from meaningful to spiritual and from spiritual to discovery.
- Learning how to facilitate a discovery bible study that goes through a series of passages from Creation to Christ.

Outreach happens best through relationships and relationships form around common interests. If you are interested in serving in any of these areas or want to know about other ongoing initiatives, or would like to start an outreach ministry based on a special interest or need, we would love to hear your ideas. Email or call the Stone Hill Center office at 609-924-3816.
The Stone Hill Koinonia Team provides a forum for issues of ethnicity, race and socio-economic differences to be discussed and understood in order to achieve better interconnections within the diversity of God's kingdom.
NOVEMBER is AMERICAN INDIAN/ALASKA NATIVE HERITAGE MONTH
The first American Indian Day was celebrated in May 1916 in New York. The event culminated an effort by Red Fox James, a member of the Blackfeet Nation who rode across the nation on horseback seeking approval from 24 state governments to have a day to honor American Indians. More than seven decades later, then-President George H.W. Bush in 1990 signed a joint congressional resolution designating the month of November “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Similar proclamations have been issued every year since 1994 to recognize what is now called "American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month." American Indians and Alaska Natives are one of the five major race categories defined by the U.S. Government.
The U.S. has 6.9 million persons of American Indian and Alaska Native heritage as many people of all races and ethnicities can also trace their ancestors to American Indians. There are 574 federally recognized Indian tribes, each with different cultures and languages, and 324 recognized American Indian reservations and off-reservation trust lands. New Jersey has two(2) State Designated Tribal Statistical Areas(SDTSAs); The Nanticoke Lenni Lenape in Cumberland County and Ramapough in Passaic County.
Stone Hill Church appreciates the contributions of Native Americans to our national culture. We invite you to learn more about Indigenous people in New Jersey and our country. Consider reading a book by a Native American author, supporting a Native-owned business or charity, or visiting a reservation or museum.
The Koinonia Team encourages continued reading and education on current issues of race and justice. The May 31 service at Epiphany Fellowship, this post from Kelly Hamren at Liberty University, and this document are great places to begin.
Thank you to all who joined the July 9th Pastoral Conversation on the crisis of injustice in our country. If you missed this event and would like to view the video, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the link.
If you have questions or for more information, please email the Koinonia team.
30+ Missionary Groups
"Whatever you have commanded us we will do, wherever you send us we will go" -- Joshua 1:16
Since the formation of Westerly Road Church in 1956 and the expansion to Stone Hill Church of Princeton in 2013, the Lord has given us a vision and an ever growing passion for missions. Today, we support more than 30 missionary groups (families and organizations) working to fulfill the Great Commission. The majority of missionaries are members of the congregation who were inspired by other missionaries, speakers and pastors encouraging them to get involved in the work of the great commission. Our missionaries are working in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. They are engaged in preaching, teaching, evangelism, church planting, medical ministry, translation and literacy, and much more.
Short Term Missions
We have a flourishing short-term mission program that supports our missionaries and local community outreach. Our praise is to the Lord for the many years SHC has been about making dedicated followers of Jesus Christ in Princeton, the Northeast, and around the world.
