From the earliest days of the church Christians have gathered together on the morning of the first day of the week to celebrate the resurrection of their Lord. It is a special time when the body that Christ has bought through death and will one day raise together to be united with Him gathers to worship Him as one. We continue that tradition at Cornerstone when we gather together on Sunday morning to sing, to pray, and to hear the Word of the Lord through the reading of Scripture and through the preaching of the Word. Our Sunday morning assembly runs from 10:45 AM -12:15 PM. Click below if you'd like to know more about what to expect during our main service.
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 (8-12 years old) and adults. The children move systematically through the "Generations of Grace" curriculum while the adults are engaged in two-year survey of Scripture. Sunday school meets from 9:30-10:15 AM every Sunday morning. Click below if you'd like to hear a sample of our current adult Sunday school class.
HOME FELLOWSHIP GROUPS
In Ephesians 4:11-16, Paul states that one of the ways the church grows is through the ministry of every member of the body as each part takes the teaching it receives from "the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers" and then ministers it to one another in love. One of the ways that we try to encourage this process is with our home fellowship groups. Every week the church gathers in small groups in the homes of various members to discuss the weekly sermon and to pray for one another - and on the Sunday following our men's and women's studies, the church gathers for a church-wide corporate fellowship. Locations and times vary according to each fellowship group. We'd invite you to send an email to the link below if you would like to learn more about how to join a home fellowship group.
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 monthly Men's Study. The topic for 2020-21 is Reverberation (aka Word-Centered Church) by Jonathan Leeman. The study meets at church on the first Saturday of every month from 7:00-8:30 AM.
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 monthly Women’s Study is one of the methods we use to try to engage in this discipleship process. The topic for 2020-21 is Reverberation (aka Word-Centered Church) by Jonathan Leeman. The study meets at church on the first Saturday of every month from 9:00-10:30 AM.
