As we’re gearing up to break ground on our new auditorium, we wanted to highlight some of the “legacy members” at StoneBridge who have invested long years in our family here. In this very special edition of our Stories series, we interviewed Nancy Humphrey, David Laday, Stef Rowe, and Kelly Wilson.Read More
Stef share's about why her family loves StoneBridge, “It’s full of normal people,” Stef says. “It’s a church of everyday people.”
Stef says the people are the number-one thing she loves most about StoneBridge.
“For us to leave StoneBridge would be like leaving our family,” Stef says. “They’re people who have mentored us with our marriage, helped us with our children, given us wedding and baby showers--they are our people, through and through.”
Kelly Wilson is the feature in this week’s StoneBridge Legacy Story. The feelings of being part of a family and being genuinely welcomed hooked the Wilsons immediately.
“StoneBridge felt like it was doing and teaching what God wanted: unity,” Kelly says. “Everybody really cares about each other, so they all feel like family.”
“I feel like I belong and I have found this is where God wants us to be. We feel so welcomed and loved.”Read More
Our latest StoneBridge Legacy Story is all about David Laday, a 12-year member and one of our elders. David says he loves the people and the authenticity here. From the beginning, he was also impacted by the fact that StoneBridge lives its mission.
“I’ve been part of a lot of organizations,” he says. “But I haven’t been a part of any other organization that truly uses its mission statement to drive every decision we make from top to bottom. If it fits that vision, we do it. If it doesn’t fit, we don’t. So that’s really cool.
“We’re real people; we recognize we have real problems/issues everybody deals with,” he says.Read More
Nancy Humphrey, has been a member since we had only 13 members. Nancy says she loves the caring and the camaraderie she’s found in her years at StoneBridge.
“You have your own little groups, but there’s always someone there if you need them. I’m fortunate to be in a group where we’re all widows except for two of us--so we have commonalities.
“I think that people that choose other groups have to find that commonality so they can help each other and understand each other.”
Last fall (2019), StoneBridge Church embarked on a mission to help the Mid India Christian Mission plant 10 churches in central and northern India. In April, we sent a group of 7 to India to meet with MICM and visit some of the new churches.
Although India is a spiritually dark country, our team witnessed the inspiring hope that Jesus has brought to the Christians who live and serve there. “It was a complete perspective change on my worldview. We experienced the full range of human emotion and civilization in one trip,” says Kristi Bebermeyer, who traveled to India with the group.
Beth Riley and her son, Garrett, became part of StoneBridge in early 2017. Since then, they’ve experienced radical, remarkable transformation in their life.Read More
