Every Sunday, you can also join us online via Facebook Live at about 10:40am.
We worship together on Sunday mornings at Pat Porter Active Living Centre! The service starts at 10:20 (and doors open at 10).
Come join us as we worship God, explore Scripture, pray, share communion, and fellowship together. Our music has an acoustic feel, our vibe is warm, casual, honest, simple, and deep. Everyone is welcome.
We practice an open table, meaning everyone is welcome to participate in communion. If you’d like to partner with us and worship through giving, there is a container on the welcome table where you can leave your gift or you may donate online through Canada Helps or by e-transfer. Please make cheques out to the ECCC and put Stonehouse in the memo.
The coffee is ready at 10! We have a coffee station set up at the back of the room with disposable cups, but feel free to bring your own drinkware to fill or re-fill. Come as you are and don’t worry if you’re running late – you won’t be the only one. The building is fully accessible should you need ramps or wide doorways. We set up with rows of chairs and have some tables set up at the back for families with young children.
Kids are an integral part of who we are and what we do as a church! At Stonehouse, kids (ages 3 to grade 6) worship with the adults and go to Sunday school during the message (we call them back to join us for communion). We also provide some kid-friendly activities on the welcome table, aim to be inclusive in the service, and have an easily-accessible toddler toy area just off the main auditorium (parental supervision required). A little extra noise is pretty inevitable with kids in the room – we get this and welcome it.
Middle School (gr. 6-8): Your middle schoolers are welcome to join us on the first, third and last Wednesdays of the month for games, activities, snacks, Bible study, and prayer – and they can gladly bring friends! Pastor Shannon and Clayton Nelson lead this group along with some of our Stonehouse high schoolers – and we always have a great time. This year our discipleship focus will be on getting more familiar with our Bibles, building community, and learning to pray.
High School (gr. 9-12): High schoolers are welcome to join us at Pastor Shannon’s on the second Tuesday of the month for The Table. We’ll make supper together, hang out, and have some intentional conversation about what it means to be followers of Jesus here and now.

More to Come
This is an exciting time for us! We are 4 years old and we’re seeing a community being formed as we make our way through these early years. We have access to a couple great spaces and are grateful to gather and worship together in person. There’s so much potential here as we live into our call to be a Covenant church in Steinbach and as we welcome people into the Stonehouse family. That said, when you come, you’ll get us as we are, at this stage of dreaming about what is possible, and living into our call one step at a time. We’d welcome your company, your input, and the gifts you’ve been created to give as we take these steps. Ultimately, who we are and who we become is up to God: God is the architect, we are the artisans and builders.
