We are so excited to announce that Cornerstone has called Mark Ritchey to serve as Minister of Youth! Mark and his wife Heather are two of the finest people you will ever meet, and they have a great love for young people! They will officially begin their service July 16. I know God is going to use them greatly in the months and years ahead! Please pray for them as they get started in this great work. It is exciting to see God at work!
A big “thank you” to the Search Committee who worked so hard in this process, and to the Cornerstone family for taking this important step of faith!
We ended up with a Total Enrollment of 182 for the week, and saw five children pray to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord! That makes all the effort far beyond worthwhile.
We also know that many seeds were planted in hearts and minds, seeds of the Gospel that will bear fruit in due time. It may be years in some cases. But God will take His Word and use it to change lives. We can trust Him to do that!
A big “thank you” to everyone who worked so hard to teach classes, do Recreation, prepare and serve the wonderful meals each night, clean up each evening, provide Security, lead Worship, drive the bus, provide the refreshments for Teachers and Workers, count the offering, Register those who attended, take photos and organize all the proceedings. Every one of you was vital to making VBS a great success! I am so proud of our church for working so hard to make VBS an outreach to all ages each year. It’s a rare thing today to see a church that offers classes for every age – from babies to adults. You make that possible through your willingness to serve.
We look forward to Vacation Bible School 2020! See you then!

Easter Sunday is a glorious day! We celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. He is alive! That profound truth changes everything. We hope you will spend the morning with us – all or part of it – in celebrating the Risen Lord. Here’s the schedule:
7:00 AM – Easter Sunrise Service
8:00 AM – Easter Breakfast (cooked by the men of the church)
8:45 AM – Special Easter Activity for Children
9:30 AM – Sunday School for all ages
10:30 AM – Easter Worship Service
(No Evening Worship)
As you can see, it will be a great morning! It will be even better if you join with us to lift up our Savior who loves us, and who is alive today!
UPDATE: We reached our goal! Thank you so much for your generous giving to share the Gospel across North America!
Our Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions is underway!
Every penny given to this offering will go to the North American Mission Board of our Southern Baptist Convention to be used to share the Good News of Jesus Christ all across our nation and throughout North America.
Our church goal this year is $4,200, as we cooperate with tens of thousands of other Southern Baptist Churches in supporting this great Missions effort. You can give over and above your regular giving at any time between now and the end of April to support this great cause of sharing Jesus with North America!
Our Wednesday Evening Activities – including Prayer Meeting and Choir Practice – are canceled for tonight due to the Basement Flooring Project, which is finishing up this week. Coatings of Polyurethane are being applied to the floor in the hallway today and tomorrow, which creates a very strong odor throughout our building.
We apologize for this inconvenience. But as you see from the photos, it is going to look very nice! Thank you for your patience throughout this process over the past month. Our Wednesday Schedule should return to normal next week!
What a great Winter Bible Study we had this past weekend, February 1-3, as we covered the thematic study, “What are You Afraid Of?”, by Dr. David Jeremiah.
We averaged 45 in the sessions Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon, and had 140 for the session on Sunday Morning! The great truth that God’s power and Presence can rise above any fear we face came shining through. We can always trust Him, and know that when we exercise our faith in times of fear, He will be glorified and we will have His peace and strength.
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this study possible, especially to our Kitchen crew who did a great job as always.
