elevation adult ministries

“Together we will climb new heights as we strive to elevate God and elevate our relationship with God.”


The mission of the Stoney Creek Adult Ministries is to glorify God by developing older adults

who grow in the relationship with Jesus Christ through love, service and commitment. 

  • Tuesday Morning Bible Study

    We are currently in a series designed to prepare you to be able to answer several basic questions about Christianity that your unsaved friends, family or neighbors might ask you. Each lesson is a “stand-alone” session, so if you miss one, you can still learn a lot from each of the remaining sessions.

     

    Coffee, donuts, friends and Bible Study are waiting for you each Tuesday morning at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall. We would love for you to join us as we learn more about God and grow closer to Him each week.

     

    With your safety in mind, tables are spaced apart and arranged so that only two people sit at each table. Masks and hand sanitizer are available as you enter. We strive to be as safe as possible as we gather. Grab a donut and join Pastor Barry for Bible study each Tuesday morning at 10 AM! We are currently in a series on the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5.  We hope you will join us!

  • MONTHLY Events

    April 16 (Friday), 6PM: International Night!

    For dinner, choose your favorite items from our full Fajita and Taco Bar catered by Moe’s Southwest Grill. Enjoy soft flour tortillas and/or crispy corn shells, steak, chicken, rice, beans, mixed onions and peppers, shredded cheese, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, chips and salsa. After our meal, The Rev. Harold Jones, Director of our OFWB International Missions Ministry, will share a narrated slideshow with hundreds of photos and many encouraging stories of the work our denomination is doing around the world to reach the Lost for Christ. There is no charge for the meal, but donation boxes will be available if you would like to make a love offering to our OFWB Foreign Missions Ministry.

     

    May 7 (Friday), 6PM: Hoohiwahiwa!

    Let's celebrate May Hawaiian style! As you arrive for our Hawaiian Luau, you will be warmly greeted with a traditional Hawaiian flower lei as our way of saying “Aloha.” Dinner will consist of slow-cooked pork, slaw, baked beans, bread, hot cobbler, ice cream—and umbrella drinks in keeping with the theme (tropical juices). Our own Stoney Creek Church Elvis impersonator will be present to share some great tunes during the party. Feel free to do some hula dancing if the mood strikes!

     

    June 4 (Friday), 9AM: Day Trippin' to Simply Natural Creamery near Ayden!

    We will start with a 10AM farm tour which includes a visit to the milking barn, processing center, a wagon ride around the farm, an opportunity to pet baby calves and even a chance to milk a cow. Also included in the tour is a free sample of some delicious Simply Natural ice cream. After our tour, we will enjoy a laid-back picnic lunch in the well-maintained Simply Natural picnic area. We are bringing all the food and beverages for the picnic, so all you have to do is show up and enjoy! You will also have time to purchase more ice cream or any of the gifts or daily products in the Simply Natural store. Save up your calories so you can eat lots of ice cream!

     

    July 16 (Friday), 9AM: Boardwalk & Boats!

    Join us as we travel to Wilmington for lunch at one of the great boardwalk seafood restaurants along the waterfront. Feel free to eat in the same restaurant with your chaperones or break off to any of the other restaurants in the area. After lunch, we will step aboard the white and blue double-decker Henrietta for a relaxing, informative and scenic cruise on the Cape Fear River. Upon leaving the dock, we will cruise upriver to the forks of two major rivers then head south past Historic Wilmington, the Battleship North Carolina and Eagles. During the cruise, the captains will give you a snapshot of Wilmington’s history from the early explorers to Modern day ships from all over the world and more. The Henrietta has an enclosed (air-conditioned) lower deck and an open, covered upper deck. After our 1PM cruise, we will head back to Goldsboro. We will take a restroom/stretch break at the Duplin County Rest Area near Warsaw.
