Men's Groups at Stone Church

An Overview

The men of Stone Church are involved in many mission, study and fellowship activities. Some have constructed homes for needy families in our state. Others organize events such as hunger walkathons, or study conferences. Still others enjoy fellowship in discussing a book many in their group have read. Some pilot small aircraft. In the past some have been amateur winemakers. This is just a partial list.

This page features activities currently taking place, where anyone wishing to join in is welcome, and where there is a group of Stone Church men participating. There is a twin emphasis here - on mission and on fellowship.

We encourage anyone who has a passion to gather friends in a new activity that's compatible with Stone Church values to make those wishes known by sending an email to the Stone Church Webmaster. Here is the link: .

That will begin the process of getting your group recognized, so that church publicity resources, including the web site, can become available to list your activities and invite participation.

Recreational Flying and Fellowship Activities

Among our Stone Church men are a number of general aviation pilots with their own airplanes. These pilots all have outstanding safety records and participate in continuing education and pilot safety seminars. We schedule occasional trips to air museums around the Bay Area for a fee that simply shares the pilot's out of pocket costs.

The photo here is of the group which flew to the Castle AFB museum in July 2007.

On Saturday Nov. 14, 2009 the Men's Group hosted and flew to an overnight wine tasting event in the Murphy's area. Bill Ribble and other pilots provided the air transportation.
