Stone Ridge Church is located in heart of East Yuma near Gila Ridge High School, the AWC campus, the Marine Corps Air Station, several retirement communities and many family neighborhoods which give us the unique opportunity to minister to a large multi-generational, interdenominational congregation. Our goal is to help people know Jesus through love, encouragement, and spiritual development and to make Jesus known to our community and the world through service, outreach, and missions.
