Communion

Holy Communion, or the Lord's Supper, is

- a remembrance of Jesus' willing sacrifice of himself for the forgiveness of sin

- a remembrance for those who have trusted in Jesus as Savior...and in the forgiveness received as a result of his sacrifice.

- is SYMBOLIC of the broken body and shed blood of Jesus

- We invite those that have trusted in Jesus as your personal Savior for the forgiveness of sins and eternal Life to join in the remembrance.



1 Cor 11:23-26

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

SBC Coronavirus update

5.4 update:


The health and safety of our family is top priority and our prayers are with those who have already been impacted by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).



Stony Brook family, from the Faith Team, Life Team, and Staff!

We pray that all of you are well and staying positive. Most importantly, we hope that you’re keeping your minds and hearts “set on things above” (Colossians 3:1,2).


To keep you updated on the timeline of returning to Sunday worship at SBC. In short, we won’t be returning to gathering just yet , but church leadership will continue to follow the changing information very closely and will be updating you weekly as to our Stony Brook return timeline.


Today (5.4.2020) is the first day of the gradual relaxing of gathering restrictions for churches. As of today, people may gather for corporate worship, but must remain in family groupings that are socially distanced.


We are not going to prematurely set a return date, but key variables we’ll be weighing heavily are:

-the decrease and elimination of social distancing laws and recommendations.

-the balancing of current restrictions with the most current health data.

-practical issues of physical gathering space for adults and children.

As we met yesterday, it was clear that all of us in the family are missing one another and anxious to be together again. We also realized that the most loving leadership will include the wisdom and discernment that prioritizes unified spiritual and physical health for all.


We’ll continue our online worship on Sundays and give even greater effort to encouraging and facilitating creative connection options throughout each week.


Again, we will be taking things week to week and communicating regularly. We covet your prayers and patience during this thorough process.


We love you very much,

Stony Brook staff and leadership

During the Worship music, please feel free to express yourself by sitting, standing, with your hands high in the air or what makes you feel comfortable during worship. 


After the music, we have a time in generosity prayer, a message, a message prayer or communion, and then a worship song and benediction. 


Bibles and supplies?

We have several NIV Bibles placed on the speakers to the left and right of the stage. Please leave it on your seat for sanitation before next service. And if you need to look in the glossary to find what page a book is on, it is normal and no one is watching or judging.

"but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love."

GriefShare Spring Session

Will be meeting via Zoom with online video. Questions? Please reach out! connect@stonybrookchurch.com or call 402-895-9596.


The GriefShare Spring Session. Please share the following information with those you feel would be blessed by attending this session. 


This program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Past participants have related how helpful the information and followup discussions were to them.


Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program.


Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.


GriefShare will be held on Monday evenings, February 10th - May 4th, from 6:30-8:00 pm online. 

Cost: Free, materials included


Any questions, call Dawn 402.895.9596

What we Believe

At stony brook church we believe…

…that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and authoritative Word of God for the Christian faith

and living. (The Bible)

…that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (God the Father)

…in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory. (God the Son)

…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling every Christian is able to live a godly life. And that every Christian receives the indwelling Holy Spirit at the moment of believing in Jesus Christ for forgiveness and eternal life. (God the Holy Spirit)

…that salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by believing in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one believes in Jesus Christ by faith. 

 …that God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ and the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Security of salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the effort of the Christian.
