Warning!! Stone House Presbyterian church is not your typical Presbyterian Church! We hold true to the teaching of the risen Savior Jesus Christ and to God’s teachings as revealed in all of Scripture – this is the solid-rock foundation of our church. But we also enjoy trying a fresh variety of new ideas of worship, and happily incorporate new ideas for worship styles, music, Bible study, fellowship, Christian Education, and outreach service. We are an extremely diverse body, and are united by our love for Jesus and desire to follow him. Everyone is welcome.
Our History: Stone House Presbyterian Church was chartered in 2002 as a new church development through the PC(USA) serving the upper James City County area. At first we met each Sunday at the Toano Middle School. We moved into our current building at 9401 Fieldstone Parkway in Toano in June of 2007.
Our Mission: “To invite, encourage, and equip people to discover the adventure of following Christ.”
Together, our corporate desire is to grow in our walks with God, and we strive to do so through the “Four G’s”:
Grace: The life of a disciple of Jesus Christ begins when we discover that God is a God of grace, that God’s love is a free gift to all, and that salvation and abundant life is freely given by God to those who profess to believe that Jesus Christ is the risen Savior and Lord. It cannot be earned. It is not deserved. And it can never be taken away. Living in light of this gracious gift enables us to experience the transformation into Christ-likeness that God desires for each one of us.
Groups: Because it is not good for humanity to be alone, we have been set in community. At Stone House, this community is best experienced through participation in fellowship with other in the congregation and in small groups where people can love, learn, reach and serve.
Gifts: Everyone has been given specific gifts that are essential for the Body of Christ to function and thrive. In addition, the use of such gifts brings great fulfillment to our individual lives. Each one of us is called to discover our specific gifts, and further, to use them for edification of the community of faith.
Giving: Rather than living a life of accumulation, followers of Jesus are called to be generous givers. All that we have – time, talent, and treasure – are God’s, and we have been blessed with these gifts in order to bless others.
“Welcome to the living Stone, the source of life. The workmen took one look and threw it out; God set it in the place of honor. Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.” (1 Peter 2:5 )
