Attention: No Children/Youth Classes Tonight due to Flooring Project; We WILL have Fellowship Meal, Prayer Meeting, Choir Practice – 2/24/16

The last step of our flooring project is being done this week. The two stairwells on the middle of the second level are being done this week. A coat of polyurethane has been applied today. As a result, we will not have the Children/Youth Classes tonight, February 24, because the classrooms are close to the area with the strong polyurethane odor.

We WILL still have our Fellowship Meal, Prayer Meeting and Choir Practice for Adults. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Attention: GROW, Wednesday Night Activities Canceled This Week due to Floor Installation

We will not be having GROW tonight, February 9, or Wednesday Activities this week, February 10, due to more work being done on our new floor. One of the final sections of our floor on the mid-level, in front of the Sunday School office, is being done this week, and applications of polyurethane will be applied. That creates a very strong odor in the building, so we will not have activities this Wednesday. Our Business Meeting will be moved back one week to Wednesday, February 17.

Thank you for you patience in this process and for your support of the Lord’s work at Cornerstone! Stay warm and have a great week. We’ll see you Sunday to worship the Lord!

God’s expectations of us only lead us toward the lives we really want . . . and enable us to enjoy the rewards of a life well-lived!

Thank You to All who helped with Water Leak Cleanup!

watersfh012416

Let me say thank you to everyone who jumped in and worked so hard yesterday morning to help clean up the water mess we found when we entered the church Sunday morning early. The first people there found about an inch of water on the mid-level of the building from the Small Fellowship Hall area all the way down the main hall toward the elevator. As it turned out, a pipe had leaked in the wall behind one of the urinals in the Men’s Restroom.

We had many folks bring their shopvacs and work at getting the bare floor dried up. The lingering problem now is that all the classrooms along the east side of that hallway, as well as the Choir Room and the Nursery had water in it, and several carpets are soaked. We have a company here now working on thoroughly drying out those classrooms and the areas that were affected by the water.

Your good spirit and your willingness to help is such an inspiration! We were able to still have Sunday School, although it required moving some folks around. Thank you for you patience and your cooperation. A good motto for life is, “Be flexible!” We are sure getting plenty of practice at that together in recent months!

It’s at these times that the power of God in His people becomes most evident. When we face difficulty, disappointment or challenges, how do we react to them? He wants us to react with hope and with faith! As we trust Him, we know He will provide all that is needed to do what must be done. Thank you for displaying hope and faith – not only yesterday – but day after day!

Building Ready for Worship & Bible Study, Sunday, January 17!

Thank you to everyone who turned out last night to get our building ready for Sunday! We had more than 20 people come and move large items back into the Kitchen and the Small Fellowship Hall following installation of our new floor. Our crew also cleaned and straightened up so we can use all of our Sunday School rooms this coming Sunday!

Everything will be ready to go for this coming Sunday, January 17! We have aired out the building, and look forward to a great day of Worship and Bible Study together. Thanks again to everyone who chipped in to get things ready!

Help! Volunteers Needed Wednesday, January 13 at 6:30pm

We need volunteers to come to the church tomorrow night, Wednesday, January 13, at 6:30pm and help move items back into the Kitchen and the Old Fellowship Hall. The new floor is finished in those areas, and we need to get things back in place. Also, there is a general need to straighten things up and get ready for a return to our regular schedule beginning with Parents’ Date Night this Friday, and our Sunday Services!

Thanks for your help!

Attention: Sunday Services Canceled for January 10, 2016 Due to Snow/Renovation

We will not have Sunday services tomorrow, January 10, 2016, due to a combination of factors. Yes, the snowfall has made things difficult, but beyond that, our floor renovation has required two coats of polyurethane to be put on the floor below the Sanctuary. The strong odor from the application of the polyurethane is VERY strong right now. But both applications have now been applied!

Everything should return to a normal schedule next Sunday, January 17! Thanks again for your understanding. Stay safe and warm, and have a great weekend!
