"Choose this day whom you will serve [...], but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." - Joshua 24:15


The elders at Cornerstone believe that the spiritual growth of the church occurs as the entire body of Christ interacts with one another (Eph. 4:15-16).  This means that, generally speaking, Cornerstone does not endorse a demographic-specific approach to ministry, choosing instead to endorse corporate assemblies that encourage all the unique personalities, backgrounds, experiences, and abilities of the church to interact with one another for the building up of the body.  However, we also recognize that God has assigned unique roles within the church through the order of creation itself, which therefore dictate the need for a more demographically-oriented approach to ministry on a few select occasions. We believe that men’s, women’s, and children’s ministries fall within this concept.  How does shape our approach to children's ministry?  Click below to learn more.


When Jesus delivers His “Great Commission” He not only tells His followers to go and make disciples by “baptizing them in the name of the Father of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” but by “teaching them to observe all that l have commanded you,” (Matt. 28:19-20) as well. Recognizing that discipleship includes ministering to believers at various stages of maturity and growth, we have implemented a Sunday school class that is designed to intentionally and systematically teach each of Cornerstone’s members “to observe all that [Jesus has] commanded [them].” In its current form, our Sunday school is split into three groups: young children (4-7 years old), elementary age children (8-11 years old) and adults. The children move systematically through the "Generations of Grace" curriculum while the adults spend the Sunday school hour in prayer. Sunday school meets from 9:30-10:30 AM every Sunday morning.


Towards the end of his life, Paul instructs Timothy, "what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." Men play an incredibly crucial role in the life and growth of a church. In fact, given unique leadership roles assigned to men in the local church, one even might say that a church is only a strong as its men's ministry. It's for this reason that we try to be very intentional about the development of the men at Cornerstone. One of the ways that we do this is with our bi-monthly men's study. The topic for 2023-2024 is Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem. The study meets at the church on the first and third Monday of every month from 6:30-8:00 PM.


In his letter to Titus, Paul tells his protege to see to it that his church lives in a manner characterized by “sound doctrine” (Titus 2:1). He points out that one of the ways this is done is for older women to teach younger women “what is good” so that the word of God may not be reviled (Titus 2:3, 5). Considering the important role that women play, both in the growth of other ladies as well as (for mothers) the children in their own home, we think it vitally important to encourage and equip the women in our church in the unique roles that God has given them within the body. Our bi-monthly Women’s Study is one of the methods we use to try to engage in this discipleship process.  The topics for 2023-24 are the MacArthur Bible Studies for 1-3 John and 1-2 Peter. The study meets at church on the second and fourth Monday of every month from 7:00-8:30 PM.
