International Friendship Club
After much prayer and planning, we are launching a ministry of presence and friendship to the international families who enroll their children in Stonebriar's Preschool Pals program. We're calling it the International Friendship Club.
IFC will meet bi-monthly on Thursday and Friday mornings. International moms can drop off their kids at Preschool Pals, then stay for friendship and culture learning on everyday topics newcomers to Frisco need to know.
We're looking for highly relational Stonebriar women who love the Lord and can open their lives and hearts to lonely moms who are trying to take care of their families in a unfamiliar environment. Come love our neighbors with us and pray for where the fun and conversations may lead.
If you want to learn more about this opportunity, come to our IFC info and launch meeting on Monday, August 6 at 11:30 a.m. on our church campus in room B243. And if you let us know you're coming, we'll buy you lunch! Just e-mail Jean at jeanastonebriar.org or RSVP on our Facebook event.
On August 22, Help Sow Seeds of Hope
A small cloud gives the promise of rain. A tiny Baby brings redemption. God often uses little things to keep hope alive--little things like seeds. Right now, in barren places, poverty and despair oppress millions and suppress hope. For them, today is a cause for worry. Tomorrow is a cause for doubt. The God of hope seems distant. Unbelievable.
On August 22 from 6 to 9 p.m., join us to pack seeds and prepare simple farming and irrigation kits designed by Global Aid Network to sprout life-sustaining gardens in developing nations. Every kit includes supplies and training and goes out in Jesus’ name to the toughest places on earth. Every kit reveals God’s love. Every seed plants hope.
Help us share the promise of life now and forever with Seeds of Hope. We need $30,000 and 600 people to meet the need.
Please Note: You will be redirected to the Global Aid Network (GAiN) site to sign up. This link may work best on Firefox or Chrome.
Register for childcare, birth to 4 years. We will offer childcare for this event if we have enough families register. We will notify you by Monday, August 20th, if we are unable to provide childcare.
Interested in being a leader for this event?
As a process leader for the Seeds of Hope packing event, you will spend most of your time on your feet, giving instructions on one of the processes below to your group of volunteers and helping transfer what is produced along to the next process leader. Areas of service include:
- Label seed envelopes for filling
- Fill and seal seed packs
- Band sets of seed envelopes for packing
- Pack and label boxes for shipment
- Irrigation Kit assembly
We also have a need for registration assistance and t-shirt sales.
Training will be held on Tuesday, August 21 at 6 p.m. Dinner will be provided. Email Jean if you are interested in this opportunity.
Please consider a donation for "Seeds of Hope" in one of the following amounts:
$12.50 will provide 50 seed packs

Because where God’s love shows…hope grows.
Light the Night
Grace & truth in the dark world of human trafficking
Did you know that right now in DFW there are about 1,600 minors who are being trafficked—forced or coerced to give themselves to others in a tragic version of modern slavery. Yes…even in Frisco.
A team of Stonebriar folks is forming to educate themselves and take steps to address the blight of human trafficking in our city—and show the love of Jesus to those who are trapped and rescued. We are calling this new ministry Light the Night.
We meet on the Stonebriar campus in room B243 on the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. Come inform yourself and help us take the light of Christ into some dark corners of our city.
To learn more, e-mail Jean at jeanastonebriar.org.
Feed My Starving Children 2018
On March 2-3, 2018, Stonebriar partnered with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children in nearly 70 countries around the world. Volunteers are needed each year to prepare and hand-pack meals specially formulated for starving children. This is a great opportunity to serve as an individual, family, or small group.
