Meet Stonehill Church:

In the spring of 2012, a group of people, including Doug and Heather Connelly, helped plant Rockharbor Church in North Meridian, Idaho. Within 4 years, Rockharbor continued to grow and began to think about planting another church in the Treasure Valley. By the spring of 2016, Rockharbor decided to launch a sister church in South Meridian with Doug Connelly becoming the lead and founding Pastor. As a result, Stonehill Church had its first Sunday service in August of 2016. We began meeting at Victory Middle School, and then in 2019 moved our Sunday services to Mountain View High School.

We believe the future is bright at Stonehill Church. Currently, we are praying and planning for what is next. At Stonehill Church, we have a heart for the following:

  • To continue to reach those who do not have a relationship with Jesus.
  • To continue to build up and disciple the believers at Stonehill Church.
  • To make a significant impact in our local community by serving with strategic outreach events, but also by teaching our church partners to serve individually every day.
  • To pray and plan for permanency in regard to building a facility. We currently have property on Amity close to Meridian Road. We are looking to break ground in the spring of 2024.
