Of all people, Christians should be the “salt of the Earth,” and the “Light of the World” where God has placed us. The United States of America is our home, and we will gather on Sunday, July 4, at 10:30 AM to give thanks to God for the way He has blessed us in this nation. We will gather to remember our Christian heritage and the principles on which our nation was founded, and commit ourselves anew to let God use us to be a blessing in this land and around the world.
We hope you will join us as we sing, pray, and as we open God’s Word together!
What a wonderful week we had in Vacation Bible School 2021!
We averaged 40 children and youth each night, with a total enrollment of 121 for the week! A huge thank you goes out to all the workers who gave so much through the week to make it possible to have Vacation Bible School. Most of them committed to work months ago when COVID-19 was still a real uncertainty. Planning was done to deal with the impact of COVID, but it turned out to be a much better circumstance than we thought possible! We praise God for that!
We had several children asking questions about receiving Christ as Savior! Please pray that God will take the seeds planted in the lives of these young people and bring about a great harvest in His time. To God be the Glory!
Music has returned to our Evening Worship Service along with our continuing “Journey” through the Bible during the sermon time. This week we will look at – Lesson 17: “A Willing Faith” – Genesis 21-23.
We did not had music in the Evening Service during COVID because our accompanists were doing two morning worship services. Once we resumed having an Evening Bible Study earlier this year, we did not add music until we returned to one Morning Worship Service.
Many churches have done away with their Evening Worship Service. But we love having this time of drawing closer to the Lord together at the close of the Lord’s Day. Please come join us as we sing together, and open our hearts to God’s Word!
Beginning Sunday Morning, May 30, we will return to just one Morning Worship Service – at 10:30 am.
Sunday, May 23, will be our final 8:30 am service. We began the 8:30 am service in the midst of the Pandemic last year in order to provide opportunity for social distancing in both services. As the Pandemic is winding down, we have only had about 15 people in the 8:30 service in recent weeks. It has served its purpose, and we look forward to worshiping together every Sunday Morning at 10:30 am! We will continue to broadcast the 10:30 am service live every week on both Facebook and Youtube.
As a result of this, beginning Sunday night, June 13, we will return to having music in our 6:00 pm service ( No Evening Service on May 30 due to Memorial Day Weekend, or on June 6 due to VBS). We had not wanted to over-burden our accompanists while they already were doing music for two Morning Worship Services, so we have been having Bible Study on Sunday Nights with no music. We will continue our Journey through the Bible during the message time each Sunday night, but will add congregational singing and special music. That service will also continue to be broadcast live every week on Facebook and Youtube.
I want to thank the crew of seven who have faithfully come and served for over a year so we could have two Morning Worship Services. It has been a real commitment and a service of love to the Lord and to His church. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We look forward to seeing you Sunday Mornings and Evenings to worship the Lord Jesus!
Online Registration is now available for Vacation Bible School 2021! You can register by clicking the link below! VBS will be held June 6-10, from 6:00-8:00pm.
We literally have classes for all ages – from preschool to Adult! The class for Adults will meet in the Sanctuary. NO MEAL SERVED this year. Children will go directly to their classes upon arrival and will enjoy exciting times for Bible Study, crafts and recreation!
We hope you will invite others to attend and come yourself for this very special week! We look forward to seeing you!
NOTE: Join us 6/20/21 at 6pm for Lesson 14: “The Blessing of Faith” – Genesis 14; 18. In-person or Live Online on Facebook and Youtube.
The Bible is the indispensable book. That’s because it is the Word of God. The word “indispensable” means, “absolutely necessary,” “not subject to being set aside or neglected.” It is from God’s heart to our hearts. If we are to know why we are here and where we are going, we must give ourselves over to the indispensable Book – the Bible.
It is to that end we will journey through the pages of God’s Word in a systematic way on Sunday nights at 6 PM, from Genesis to Revelation, knowing that God will speak to us and do His work of growth and change in our lives. We will begin this journey on January 24, 2021, at 6 PM in the Sanctuary, which will also be broadcast online each week. I hope you will be blessed beyond measure as you open yourself to His Word, and that you will never be the same again for having done so.
Cornerstone will be reopening Sunday School (Bible Study) for all ages starting April 18, 2021!
Below is a list of the classes available. We hope you and your family will plan to attend every Sunday morning at 9:30 am. There are several classes for Adults. You are welcome to visit more than one class as you decide which one is best for you.
Many churches gave up on Sunday School years ago. But there is something powerful about spending time in Bible Study with other believers. Having your children and grandchildren in Sunday School to study the Bible and learn about Jesus, in a class with their peers, and with teachers who love them and care about their spiritual growth on a consistent basis, is so important for their spiritual development. That’s why we have worked hard to keep offering Sunday School for all ages – and why we are reopening it now in the wake of the Pandemic.
A huge “thank you” goes out to all who have stepped up and committed to teaching and working to make it possible for us to offer these classes! Additional classes may be added as time goes along. See you in Sunday School!
LIST OF SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES – STARTING 4/18/21
Nursery (0-2 yr. olds)
Toddlers (3-4 yr. olds)
Youth (Grades 6+)

UPDATE: Posted above is video of our Easter Worship Service, Sunday, April 4, 2021!
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 join us this Easter Sunday, April 4 in celebrating the Risen Lord!
We will have two identical services Sunday Morning – 8:30 & 10:30 AM – so choose one and come worship the Risen Christ. The 10:30 AM service will be broadcast live on Youtube and Facebook. NOTE: There will be no Evening Bible Study this Sunday.
We will be having a potluck meal on Sunday evening, March 7, at 5:30 PM to kickoff our Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions!
We hope you will bring some food to share (main dish and a side or dessert) and join us for this special evening of food, fellowship, and devotion as we focus on our efforts to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ across North America.
Goal: $4,500 Given to Date (5/10/21): $4,600! Goal Exceeded! Thanks for your Faithful and Generous Giving!
Our Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions is about to get underway! This special offering supports thousands of Southern Baptist Missionaries sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the United States and across North America.
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.
Our church goal this year is $4,500, as we cooperate with more than 40,000 other Southern Baptist Churches in supporting this great Missions effort. You can give online (choose “Annie Armstrong” in drop-down menu), in-person, by mail 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 people across the United States and the rest of North America!
