We are the only Evangelical Presbyterian Church in the Greater Toledo area. We believe that the Christian life is not about having it all together, nor is it about doing whatever we feel like doing. Titus 2:11-14 tells us, “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,  waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.”

We affirm a Reformed perspective of the Scriptures. This means we see the Bible speaking a great deal about God’s sovereignty over all things including salvation. We believe that faith in Christ alone is necessary for salvation and that God is the One who works that faith in us.

We affirm that God relates to His people by means of His Covenants. Our God is Covenantal. He deals with mankind by means of covenants that he has made.

Growing and Reaching

We are a small congregation with a new pastor. Taylor Wright [and his family] joined us on March 1, 2022.  If you are would like to shape what ‘your’ church looks like and how it serves in its community, Stonebridge Church might be a good fit for you.  We would love to have you visit and get to know you and your family. If you are looking for a church home, we might be looking for each other.

Learning about our Christian faith has always been a priority for us. We are committed to missions by getting to know and communicate with missionaries, by giving financially, by going ourselves to serve, and by sending from our own church those who feel called to go. We support local, national, and international mission outreaches. Basic to this is our belief that each of us is called to share our faith with those we contact each day.

Local Outreach and Service

Perrysburg Christians United is one of the practical ways our members volunteer their time, energy and resources in support of our community.  Perrysburg Christians United is a group of 12 or so Perrysburg churches formed in 1973. The purpose of Perrysburg Christians United, commonly known as PCU, is to provide for the needs of the community through an active food bank, annual blood drives, crisis assistance, and a Christmas toy  project.  PCU serves individuals and families who live in Northern Wood County, north of State Route 582.

PCU Food Pantry SE corner of Grace United Methodist Church, 601 E. Boundary St. Perrysburg, OH  43551.   The pantry is open: Monday, 1:00-3:00 PM, and Friday, 9:00-11:00 AM

Missions

Personal and financial support for missions and missionaries has been a focus at Stonebridge since the beginning. We are blessed to be called by God, and it is His plan for Christians to share the Gospel with others — here at home and around the world. The emphasis of our support has always been three fold, reaching out locally and nationally where we can be personally involved, supporting those of our number who are called to go, and supporting outreach of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

Though we are aware of many worthy missions needs, we favor use of our modest resources on a few larger gifts, rather than many smaller ones, all the while praying that we would be wise in our choices. We support work on five continents in addition to North America. We support individuals, couples, families. Our missionaries work in religious as well as secular settings. We support efforts to evangelize, to train nationals, and to build church families. We also strongly encourage our own members to participate through short-term assignments.
