6 Stones Mission Network

Last January I got wind of a new ministry that would be started by my church. I didn't know much about it or what it would even be called. At the time all it meant to me with a closed door in my life.

Now almost eight months later the 6 Stones Mission Network is in full force. 6 Stones is a 501c3/ non profit created with the intent of working with a coalition of churches, non-profit agencies and other entities to assist in meeting the needs of the people within our community. 6 Stones consists of many parts with a main goal. Serving the community and helping to show the love of God to others.

This last weekend 6 Stones handed out backpacks to 44 families. Calls continue to pour in from people asking if there are still backpacks to give away. There are.

6 Stones is something like a Mission Arlington. It is a place that people can go when they need help. When they need food or clothes. With the downturn of the economy we have seen a great need in our community. People are hungry and cannot provide basic needs for their family. 6 Stones aims to meet those needs.

6 Stones has also been involved in community revitalization. 6 Stones been involved in the revitalization of 15 homes. Homes that desperately need repair.

It has been amazing to watch how God is using this ministry in my community.

This Sunday the students from my church will not meet for regular Sunday School, instead they will team up with 6 Stones and go door to door collecting canned and nonperishable food items. I cannot wait to see how God uses my small group girls to meet the needs of those in their community.
For more information on 6 Stones you can go to www.6stones.org . They always post their current needs on the top left hand side of their website.
I encourage you to pray about what your part is in your community. If you are apart of my community maybe your part is to give, serve, or somehow else be apart of the 6 Stones Mission Network.
