Summer in the Cities
In this sermon series, StoneBridge will be journeying through the cities mentioned in the Book of Acts, looking at how the Holy Spirit works through the Apostle Paul in each city. By doing so, we will be able to more clearly see the Holy Spirit at work in our own city.

2. Pray for this gift, asking that God would reveal how you can use to bless someone and help them have hope in Jesus' resurrection.

3. Pass that gift along to someone else.
GROWTH GROUP / PERSONAL REFLECTION QUESTIONS

1. What do you know about Lydia? Have you heard of her before?

Starting Wednesday, June 15th! Hosted by Stephanie Leedy, Director of Children's and Family Ministries, the StoneBridge Parents podcast is dedicated to having real, honest conversations with members of our community. Each week we will talk with a special guest about a variety of topics including Youth Director Ryan Joslin's vision and goals for youth ministry, Ms. Stephanie's journey with postpartum depression, and Preschool Teacher Kristen Castellano's words of wisdom on the transition from preschool to kindergarten! We have some amazing episodes, moments, and parenting game-changers parents of all ages will want to hear.

Come and bring your whole family to play in a friendly kickball tournament and eat some BBQ! Families can bring lawn chairs and blankets to watch games while waiting their turn and enjoy getting to know each other. Dinner will be provided and all members of the family are encouraged to participate! Rather not play and just want some BBQ and community? No problem! All are welcome to come and cheer the participating teams!

RSVP for Kickball Cook-out!

Let us know you're coming so we can plan accordingly!
