As adults discuss and make policy for The United Methodist Church at the quadrennial General Conference, Cathy Capo Stone, executive director at Cornerstone Family Ministries in Tampa, Fla., site of this year’s General Conference, reminds us to not forget the impact of church work on the inner-city children whom she cares for every day. Cornerstone is a United Methodist Women national mission institution centered on the care of children.

Ms. Stone also participated at “Break Bread With Tampa” today, a free lunch and outdoor event organized by The United Methodist Church’s
Ministry With the Poor initiative, where she stood side by side United Methodist Women’s chief executive, Harriett Jane Olson. United Methodist Women support Cornerstone Family Ministries as a National Mission Institution, which is historically connected to United Methodist Women as an organization started by deaconesses. “We are glad to have Cornerstone in the backyard of General Conference,” Ms. Olson said.
