Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal – $4000

We have kicked off our 2017 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. We join more than 40,000 other Southern Baptist Churches in this great cause to share to Good News of Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth!

This offering supports more than 4,000 missionaries serving all over the world, providing nearly half of their total support – particularly most of the funds used for actual ministry. Our Cooperative Program giving every month (Cornerstone gives 10% of our General Receipts to the Cooperative Program) provides the other half of the International Mission Board’s funding. We are privileged to be part of a worldwide missions endeavor.

Let’s give generously to reach our goal and tell the world about Jesus this Christmas! Thanks for your generosity!

Sights from Cornerstone’s “Trunk or Treat” 2017 – Photos

Here are some photos from the great “Trunk or Treat” night we had yesterday at Cornerstone. We had more than 300 attend! Read here for more details and a video report by KRCG from the church.

Fantastic “Trunk or Treat” Night; More than 300 in Attendance! – Watch KRCG Report from Cornerstone 10/25/17

Wow! What an amazing night we had last night with “Trunk or Treat” at Cornerstone! We even had Megan Sanchez from KRCG-TV come and do a report from our church. She was very kind and professional. We were honored to have her. Above is video of the report she did.

We had 298 people register, with several dozen other folks who joined in the activities after we were underway. So we had well over 300 people attend! It was a wonderful chance to meet many new friends and enjoy serving our neighborhood and community by giving children and parents a safe place to “trick or treet.” Seeing the joy on the faces of children and their parents was a real blessing!

I want to thank Jan Soucie and her entire committee who organized this great event and all of our members and others who worked and helped to make this possible. Thank you for showing your love for others and for sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the hundreds who came. May God use this to open hearts and minds to His love in the days to come!

UPDATE: Volunteers Needed Saturday, Sept. 23 at 8 AM to Continue the Work!

Work has been ongoing Friday and today on the remodeling of our Sanctuary to enlarge the stage area and the sound booth. A big thank you to everyone who has turned out to work again this weekend. Much progress has been made as you can see from the pictures! Keep praying we can get this project completed and everything finished up by the Holidays in November-December! Once the remodeling is done, our new carpet will be installed in the Sanctuary! We will be painting the foyer and the Sanctuary before the new carpet is installed. We’ll likely begin the painting next week. Thanks for your willingness to pray and to help!

Sanctuary Remodeling Project Underway! Work Continues Sept. 15-16. Workers Needed!

We’re off to a great start on our Sanctuary Remodeling project to enlarge our stage area and our Sound Booth at the back. We had 16 people show up last Saturday to work, and the old Sound Booth was demolished to make way for the new one. The left side of the stage area was dismantled as well to get ready to start framing the area that will be enlarged on that side. Thank you to everyone who came and helped!

Work will continue this Friday and Saturday, September 15-16. Anyone who can come and help on Friday after 11 AM, and/or Saturday at 8 AM will be greatly appreciated! Work will continue through the day both days and into the evening on Friday. Below are more photos of the work done this past Saturday!

Sermon Series “A Fresh Start” Begins Sunday, September 10, 10:30 AM

Sometimes, you just need a fresh start.

That’s true for all of us. Beginning Sunday morning, September 10, 10:30 AM, I will be preaching a Sermon Series called, “A Fresh Start.” We will look at how, with God’s power and grace, it is possible for us to start over, or at least reset ourselves in many areas of life. So if you feel like you need a “do-over” in your relationship with God, with others, or in some area of your life, I hope you will prayerfully hear what God would say in these messages. If you know someone who needs a fresh start, invite them to join us!

Our Week of Prayer is September 17-24 to pray for the work of God in our state and for the Missouri Missions Offering.

We will begin the week with a kick-off, carry-in dinner and program on September 17 at 5:30 PM in the Large Fellowship Hall. Bring a main dish and a side dish or dessert to share and come hear what your giving to MMO will help to support.
