Join us for our annual Cornerstone Church Picnic at the Park, October 1, 2:00-7:00 PM at the Ellis-Porter Riverside Park.
We will have music and games, and there is a children’s playground nearby. We will gather at the big pavilion on top of the hill. The church will provide grilled meat. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share and your own beverages.
We will eat at around 5:00 PM, with a brief devotional service to follow. Come and be a part of this relaxing and enjoyable time of fellowship!
On September 9, 8 AM, we will begin remodeling the Sanctuary to enlarge our stage area and to enlarge the Sound Booth in the back. This will provide additional space for sound and equipment needs, and to add a row of chairs for our growing Sanctuary Choir! It will also provide more space for our Grand Piano that will arrive later this Fall!
We need volunteers to come and help with this work. Rick Miller and others will able to direct you what to do. You don’t have to be an expert to help. Just show up with a willing heart! Thanks in advance for your willingness to help!
UPDATE: Here are a couple of pictures as the new flooring is being installed today. Looks great!
Work has begun on remodeling our restrooms and foyer area in the front of the church. The restrooms are being remodeled to be ADA compliant. New flooring is being installed today! The video above shows several images of our volunteers who turned out this past Saturday to tear out the old carpet and get it ready for new flooring.
Thanks so much to everyone who helped!
It’s time! Our Church Pictorial Directory sign-up is here! You can sign-up NOW for your own sitting appointment by clicking on the image above or by clicking here. The dates are September 6-9.
We want every family unit connected (member, attender, or even connected to our attenders) to our church to take part in this important ministry. Yes, it is a ministry to have your picture taken. That’s because it helps build the Fellowship of our church family. Current members and attenders can look at the completed directory and learn who people are, and it helps as future new members come into our church family to get to know everyone.
So even if you would not be inclined to have your picture taken just for yourself – do it for your church family. Do it for the Kingdom of God! There is no cost and you will receive a free 8 X10 and a copy of the new directory. If you want to purchase additional pictures from Lifetouch, you can, but there is no obligation to do so.
If you have a family member who is not a part of Cornestone, you can still invite them to have their photo taken and they will get the free 8 x10 and can purchase additional photos if they want to.
Thank you for taking part and helping to make this a great success! Please sign-up NOW for your sitting time!

ATTENTION: No 6 PM Evening Service Sunday, February 5
In the wake of the horrific assassinations of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, and as part of the Concord Baptist Association, Cornerstone is dismissing our normal Evening Worship Service, July 10, in order to join with our sister churches in a special Prayer Service to support Law Enforcement in our community. It will be at Concord Baptist Church on Truman Blvd., at 6 PM, Sunday, July 10. This service is our opportunity to show support for those who put their lives on the line to serve and protect us and to defend the rule of law in our society.
Those wishing to ride the bus/car pool over to Concord can gather at Cornerstone at 5:30 PM, July 10. We hope to see you there.
Vacation Bible School 2016 is over, but we know the impact of it will go on for years to come – for an eternity to come!
We had an enrollment of 160 for the week and had two children pray to receive Christ as Savior and Lord! A third child told us they had prayed at home to receive Christ recently! So, that alone made it a wonderful week.
We know many seeds were planted in hearts and minds, and God will continue to water those seeds. We believe, by faith, that in His time, there will be a great harvest that will result from what happened June 5-9, 2016 at Cornerstone! Thank you to all the teachers and workers who made the week possible by your sacrifice and service. A special thank you to my wife, Rose, who spent countless hours planning and preparing for the week as Director. To God be the Glory!
Online Registration is now available for Vacation Bible School 2016! Just go to our VBS page to see the details about VBS 2016, or register by clicking the link below! VBS will be held June 5-9, from 5:45-8:30pm.
Cornerstone’s annual “Ladies Banquet” will be held Saturday, May 7, at 12 Noon. The meal is prepared and served by the Men of Cornerstone, and a brief program will follow. We hope all women and girls will attend this special day to honor you!
