About: Stone Village Church
Stone Village Church is an inclusive community in the Short North Arts District of faithful adults in full relationship with God. They are a church that is audacious. They are a church that is relevant. They are a church that is fully inclusive of ALL people. They believe every human being is created and gifted by God; therefore, every human being is invited to be a real part of the church, regardless of background, belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, class, age, or any of the other categories people use to separate or exclude. They believe the goal of church is not to make people more religious, but to help people be more fully human. Their ultimate goal is to grow in love and understanding of our creator, God, while simultaneously growing in love and understanding of one another.
What’s Sunday worship like at Stone Village? Worship for them is not the pastor performing for the congregation. Rather, they as a body of believers, led by the pastor, fully participate in worshiping God as a community. They follow the ancient liturgy of the church, specifically Rite One from the Book of Common Prayer, so you can expect scripture, prayer, a sermon, communion, a benediction, etc. Their music is an acoustic and blended style. They sing ancient chants, traditional hymns, and contemporary worship music.
At Stone Village Church, they believe art is a necessary element for a healthy and vital community. They believe art helps us discover our place in life. They believe art is a means of connection to those different from ourselves. They believe art leads us to ponder the unseen mysteries and potentials in each of our lives. Stone Village hosts a new gallery exhibit each month during the first Saturday of the month.
