November 22 = Session 7: “The Lion King” – Daniel 6

Beginning October 11, we will begin having a Sunday Night Bible Study at 6 PM in the Large Fellowship Hall. We will study the book of Daniel using a Video Series by Dr. David Jeremiah, “Agents of Babylon.” I know this study will be a tremendous blessing to you and hope you will make plans to attend. We will not have a music service, only the Bible Study.

Here are the 12 Lessons of the Study:

NOTE: Once we return to having one Morning Worship Service when the need for Distancing has passed, this will resume being our Evening Worship Service, with the study as the Evening Sermon.

2020 Operation Christmas Child – Shoeboxes! UPDATE: Boxes Packed and Dropped off! Thank You!

UPDATE: 65 Boxes packed and dropped off at the collection site! Thank you for your help! Special thanks to Pam J., Carolyn N. and Bill and Lina S. for packing dozens of boxes with items and delivering them to the collection site!

________________________________

We are doing shoeboxes this year again! COVID-19 has interfered with our collection process, but we want to still help the children. Many of their countries have been severely affected by the virus too.

Three ways you can help:

  1. Pack your own box. Boxes are available on the display table at the back of the Sanctuary.
  2. Bring items to donate. Shopping lists are available at the back of the Sanctuary, or see the list here in this post!
  3. If you aren’t going out to shop, we will shop for you. Marked offering envelopes are available on the display table, or just mark your gift for “Shoeboxes” on your envelope. We will take those funds and purchase items and pack shoeboxes with the items you purchased!

Thank you so much for participating and for making Christmas brighter for some children! Please bring your shoeboxes to the church no later than November 15.

Trunk or Treat 2020 – A Tremendous Success! thanks to All!

A big “thank you” to everyone who worked so hard to make our October 22, 2020 Trunk or Treat Ministry a great success!

We had 24 cars represented to give our candy and treats, and on the night, we had 250 children come by, with 350 in attendance with adults included.

We gave out candy to all, and also distributed 300 New Tesaments, Gospel tracts, and hundreds of small American Flags!

A special thanks to Jan S. and Marlene N. who planned and organized the event this year, in spite of challenging circumstances! Also, thanks to Aaron J., who used his drone to give us an ariel view of the evening (see video above). What a great evening God gave us.

Family Movie Night, Oct. 2, 6:30 pm – “The Borrowers”!

Fellowship Activities have been hard to come by since the Pandemic started. We are going to try doing a relaxed “Family Movie Night” on Friday, October 2, at 6:30 PM in the Large Fellowship Hall. We will be showing the wonderful fun movie, “The Borrowers.” You can sit in family groups to be socially distanced, but be close enough to fellowship!

Pre-packaged Snacks and drinks will be provided. So come and join us for this fun time of fellowship!

It’s time for “Trunk or Treat!” We know this has been such a tough year for everyone. But we will be having our annual “Trunk or Treat.” We will have the “Trunk” portion only this year outside. But we hope you will tell your family and friends and bring the kids by to be part of the fun!

Join us on Thursday, October 22, from 5:45-7:30 PM! NO MEAL will be served this year, but there will be plenty of candy for the kids! We look forward to seeing you! Everyone welcome! NOTE: TRUNKS arrive by 5:30 pm to get in position.

Great Days Ahead! – Pastor’s Update

I hope this finds all of you doing well, continuing to weather the bizarre year that 2020 is. None of us could have ever predicted back on January 1 that this year would unfold as it has. But God is faithful, and He has walked with us and gone before us every step of the way. This has been a faith-building year!

As a church, we continue to try and meet the needs around us. We will continue to offer two Sunday morning services for the foreseeable future, 8:30 & 10:30 am, because it allows us to block off every other pew in order to provide some distancing. I know not everyone feels this is necessary, but there are many who do, and this helps more people feel they can get out and come to church for worship. Please know that we are trying to do the very best we can to navigate these issues and these times in the best way possible. Our 10:30 service will continue to be broadcast online each week, and Children’s Church (4-4th grade) is available in that service.

On October 4, we will be showing a Christian Documentary Film, “Before the Wrath,” at 6 pm. The film is 84 minutes long, and it focuses on recently rediscovered anthropological evidence from the time of Christ that relates to the coming Rapture of the Church ahead of the Great Tribulation Period. No one knows when the Lord will return, but we know that He will! This film helps us to think about His return and clearly presents the Gospel to help people be prepared for that glorious day. A Discussion Guide for the film will be provided. There is no charge. So invite friends and family to join us!

Beginning Sunday night, October 11, we will have a Sunday night Bible Study at 6 pm. We will study the book of Daniel using a Video Series by Dr. David Jeremiah, “Agents of Babylon.” I know this study will be a tremendous blessing to you and hope you will make plans to attend.  We will not have the song service, so as not to put too much on our accompanists since they are already doing two Sunday Morning Services. But this will provide another avenue for Bible Study together. It should last 30-45 minutes each Sunday Evening. I hope you will bring your Bible and join us!

Plans are being made for us to have our annual “Trunk or Treat” Outreach in October. It will have to be done differently this year, and we have some faithful folks working on those details. We will be sharing more soon about the date and how you can help. Just pray God will lead us, and will use it as a strong witness for Him!

It is a joy to Pastor this great church. I have been blessed beyond words to see your faithfulness to give and to serve through these very trying times. God is using this to make us stronger and more effective as we live for Him. Let me know if I can be of help to you, and always know I am praying for you and your family. May God bless you, and may He use us together for His Glory!

Watch the Movie “Before the Wrath” at Cornerstone, October 4, 6 PM – Everyone Welcome!

We hope you will join us Sunday night, October 4, at 6 pm for a special showing of the film, “Before the Wrath.” This Christian Documentary is a powerful film that provides a timely message of comfort and hope based on true discoveries from the time of Christ. Researchers in the Middle East present new evidence and shocking insight on the biblical prophecies of Christ’s second coming. Before the Wrath reveals how and why he will return for His Bride—Christians who faithfully wait for the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ.”

Watch the Trailer for the Movie above.

There is no charge to see this movie. A Discussion Guide will be provided. It is 84 minutes long. We hope to see you there!

NOTE: No childcare provided, but we love having children in the Sanctuary with us. There is a Restless/Sensory Room available just outside the Sanctuary that has audio from the service.
