WHITE STONE FOOD PANTRY
Our food pantry operates out of our office the last Tuesday evening of each month + the second Saturday morning of each month. We are here to serve those within our community + those within our church body who need assistance. Our food pantry is drive thru + very minimal contact for your safety. Click HERE to find a complete list of items to fill a family bag. If you would like more info or would like to volunteer, contact our office at (865)255.4938 or email HERE. Follow our social media outlets for food pantry dates, monthly sign up list + specific items needed each month.
Working with KARM is our longest running mission work at White Stone. Each month, a group of women from our church provide a birthday party for the women staying at KARM, along with cake + a bag of personal products just for them. If you would like more info about this ministry, email HERE.
Water Angels is a ministry that serves the homeless + marginalized in our city. You can find more info about them by visiting their Facebook page HERE or by calling (865)524.5194. We join their work by providing meals, volunteering in their clothes closest, and attending worship services with them.
FOSTER CARE TRAILER
One of our we will statements is we will join with God + others in the care of widows + orphans in their distress. Foster care + adoption are important parts of Kingdom work + we want to come along side people + families who answer this call. You can find out the heart behind this new mission outlet by watching our video HERE.
White Stone began its journey with the nation of Haiti in 2002, when the church received a random letter from a Haitian pastor asking for help. A year later, a small group of people made the trip down to see the situation for themselves. One trip led to another, and another and. . . What a journey it has been to walk hand in hand with our beautiful and strong brothers and sisters in Haiti for the past 15+ years.. The focus of our ministry there has continued to evolve over the years, but the focus has never strayed far from James 1:27, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress….”
Over the years we have sought to accomplish this in numerous ways: by supporting orphanages, facilitating adoptions, building homes for families in distress, feeding programs/food distributions, building local churches and equipping Haitian pastors, supporting schools and teachers, investing in raising up the next generation of leaders, disaster relief, medical clinics, and partnering with other ministries on the ground that are already furthering the Kingdom. In all of this, we have been the ones who have been overwhelmingly blessed, having been shaped and bettered from the process.
We generally send several mission teams down each year. We encourage everyone to “Go” and experience it for yourself. Check back soon for more up-to-date information on what’s next and how you can get involved.
