Reminder: Pentecost - Sunday, June 5, 2022

Cornerstone Family,

This week we celebrate Pentecost together as a church family. In preparation for that event, I thought I’d send you a reminder about a few things that make Pentecost significant at Cornerstone.

  • Covenant Renewal. Pentecost marks the “birthday” of the NT church. With that in mind, one of the ways we commemorate Pentecost is by renewing our membership covenants with one another. Last year we did this in writing (as we had revised our covenant). This year, the renewal will be verbal only. I’ve attached our church covenant. I would encourage our members to prayerfully review this covenant this week, as well as the list of members listed in your Cornerstone directory. Let’s come with hearts refreshed in our willingness to serve and support one another in our pursuit of Christ!
  • Congregational Fellowship & Meeting. We also have a congregational meal on Pentecost, and during the meal, we usually have a congregational meeting where Clint and I announce our plans for Cornerstone for the coming year. This year is different in that while we WILL have a corporate fellowship meal, we WILL NOT have our scheduled congregational meeting. Clint and I are not yet ready to present our plans for the upcoming year, so we will be postponing that discussion until a later date (yet to be determined). If you’d like to bring something to the corporate fellowship, you can do so at THIS LINK.
  • Promotion Sunday. Pentecost serves as our “move-up” Sunday in children’s ministry. Children entering into kindergarten are welcome to join our younger class during Sunday school, while kids moving into third grade will move up into our older Sunday school class. Kids moving into 7th grade are promoted out of children’s Sunday school and encouraged to join the adult Sunday school class taking place in the fellowship hall.
  • Home Fellowship Groups. Our home fellowship groups take a break between Pentecost and Martyrs’ Day (resuming August 14). I’d encourage you to use the time to reach out to families in the congregation that you might not regularly spend time with and invite them to share a meal with you. (Please note that our monthly corporate fellowships WILL continue.)

I think that about covers it. If you have questions about any of the above, please don’t hesitate to ask. Looking forward to worshiping with you this Sunday!

In Christ,

Ryan Joki
