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!
We have decided to cancel Church Council and GROW for tonight, January 19, due to the Winter Weather Advisory that has been issued. Snow is expected to be falling this afternoon and tonight. Stay warm and safe!
Our Wednesday Evening Fellowship Meal will return starting next Wednesday, January 20! We had to pause them while we removed the old flooring and during the process of installing the new floor.
Our volunteer kitchen staff prepares a delicious meal. A donation can is provided, and suggested donations (not required) to cover the cost is Adults (19+) $3, Children & Youth – Free.
Call by Tuesdays to cancel or reserve, 893-2600 or 584-8632. A standing list is available if you want to attend each week. Just call to add your name to the standing list. You can eat at any time between 5:15 – 6:00 pm. Just come when you can. We look forward to seeing you!
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!
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!
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!
We apologize for the inconvenience this process has caused, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding. We will get the building aired out and all set up this coming week. 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!
Great progress has been made this week on installation of our new floor on the mid-level of the building. The process of putting down the Epoxy Floor (also called a “poured floor”) requires application of two coats of polyurethane, hence a very strong odor. As a result of that, we paused installation of the floor after the Large Fellowship Hall was finished because we did not want our Christmas Events to be hampered due to the strong odor.
Installation resumed this week, and the kitchen, office hallway and bathrooms off that hallway are now finished!

Thanks to the tremendous work of Aaron Jacobson, we have a new website! Aaron created our original website as well. But he has created this one using WordPress. It will be much easier to keep updated with news and information.
It’s pretty basic right now as far as information. But we will be adding to it steadily in the days ahead. I hope you will come here often and use the pages here to learn more about Cornerstone and to grow in your faith.
