South Reno Missions Outreach Groups

Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” John 20:21

Widows & Orphans

“Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” Mark 9:37

Today we have four serving opportunities in Reno helping the most vulnerable children and families in our community at with Real Choices Crisis Pregnancy Center, Foster The City, Pathfinders, and Women & Children’s Center of the Sierra.

Poor & Needy

"If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, be warmed and filled,' without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?" James 2:15-17

Caring for the poor and needy we have the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission and Food Bank of Northern Nevada, and others will be coming soon. These are all ministries and or non-profit organizations that Living Stones has been serving for years.

Ends of the Earth

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Living Stones members have been actively involved in short-term mission for decades in Mexico building churches, houses for homeless families, and training pastors and church planters. We partner with global ministries who provide fresh water for those who have none, train pastors, care for widows and orphans, and have planted hundreds of churches in India.

Widows & Orphans

Real Choices
Crisis Pregnancy Center

Real hope, real help, real choices.

We Serve You & We Honor Your Voice. No one should pressure you into or force you to make a pregnancy decision you are not comfortable with. We are committed to providing you with everything you need to make an informed choice in a caring environment.

Foster the City

A coalition of churches providing loving homes for children in foster care.

“Throughout history, Christians at their best have been known as those who defend the cause of the fatherless.” Our vision is a church for every child. Every child in foster care has a name and a story, and every story matters to God. Due to a shortage of foster homes across the country, children in the foster care system are often placed outside of their community, moved around multiple times and are vulnerable to society’s most pressing issues. If even a fraction of churches raises up one Foster Family with a team of Support Friends, there will be more than enough loving homes to meet the need.


Breaking the cycle of generational poverty in Northern Nevada one child at a time.

Reaching Forgotten Children - society calls them "Children in Transition", "At Risk Youth" and "Throw Away Kids". Jesus calls them precious and loved. There are more than 5,000 children and youth in Northern Nevada who are homeless or living in motels, shelters, and trailers. These children are trapped in a cycle and culture of poverty that is extremely difficult to escape. We believe that no child should be condemned to a life of hopelessness and lack of opportunity because of the circumstances into which they were born. We are on a mission to see that each and every child has a hope and a future.

Women & Children's Center of the Sierra

Empowering women to rise out of poverty.

The Women and Children’s Center of the Sierra (WACCS) works to support women as they work to escape poverty and improve their lives and the lives of their children. We work with each woman as she walks her path striving to fulfill her goals and dreams. WACCS offers a wide variety of client-advised services. These include educational and life skills classes; a diaper bank which distributes between 9,000 – 11,000 diapers monthly; basic needs provision including food, hygiene, and cleaning supplies; an open computer lab; goal setting and job search help; domestic violence assistance; information and referral services; and so much more. Services are tailored to individual clients’ needs, and all services are free.

Poor & Needy

Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission

Offering life recovery, substance rehabilitation, and hope
for the broken and hurting in our community.

“The Biggest Little City” has a big problem. Across Northern Nevada, there are more than 1,000 men, women, and children without a home; and homeless families mean homeless children. Dozens of kids are getting by on one meal or less per day and some sleep outside every night. More than 1 in 7 in Northern Nevada live below the poverty line and about 63,000 people regularly go hungry. Thousands of people are struggling with addiction. There is a lot of hurt on our streets, but we’re here to help.
We help the hurting and homeless with meals, shelter, addiction recovery, and hope. We don’t just plop some food on a plate or hand someone a blanket - we love on them. We seek out those who are struggling with life to encourage them, to help them, and above all to love them. But we can’t do it alone… We need you.

Food Bank of Northern Nevada

Feeding the hungry today and solving hunger for tomorrow
through community partnership.

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides food for families in need through more than 150 partner agencies across northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the Sierra in California. We serve more than 120,000 people every month, almost half of whom are children and seniors. The Food Bank grew from a small pantry to a regional distribution center. We incorporated in 1983 and have operated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization for more than 35 years. Last fiscal year, we provided more than 20 million meals for neighbors who faced hunger. We are a proud member of Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks and the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, providing more than 4 billion meals to nearly every community in the U.S.
