Welcome to Cornerstone

Cornerstone United Methodist Church is a community of believers dedicated to building our lives upon the Good News of Jesus Christ!  The life of God, wrapped in the flesh of humanity, who out of love for this world and its people was born as an infant, lived among us, taught and embraced us, suffered and died for us upon the Cross, rose from the grave, living and reigning today throughout all creation – and in our hearts!

Sunday worship at 9 & 10:45  am.

Come as you are.  Build your life upon Jesus, our Cornerstone!


Upcoming Events

Our BIG Youth Outreach Event is coming up next month:  FriendsGiving; where all our Youth are encouraged to bring their friends to a big night of games, worship and a big Thanksgiving Dinner.  We rely on donations of prepared foods and for servants to help put this big night on — there is a sign up genius online, or you can speak with Pastor James on how to help.  https://bit.ly/2NdpwRb

We are also in the Season of Preparing Special Gifts for Christmas — we are collecting for both our Missionaries in India the Ellingtons, and shoeboxes of toys for Operation Christmas Child. Take a tag off the Christmas tree to support the Ellingtons,  or grab a shoebox and return it with toys to support Operation Christmas Child!

Dear Church Family,

Thank you so much for your prayers, support, and love! My heart is overflowing from everyone’s kindness and interest in the missionary work God has called me to in Japan.
As I have shared many times, I was hoping to reach a support raising deadline of 60% by September 30th. Well, I made it to 52%, which is an incredible feat in my eyes. It had nothing to do with me and everything to do with God, you, and everyone all over the world who has invested their time to be part of this journey with me through prayer and encouragement.

Now to the burning question, what happens now? If you don’t get to go to the training, can you still go to Japan? Absolutely I am still going to Japan! The goal is still to be 100% funded by February. Every gift given up to this point still goes towards reaching that goal. This is not a set back, it’s just a change in direction. There will be another training for me to go to, but the dates have not been finalized yet. So we will pray that God has already planned it to work for His glory and perfect timing. We are going to Japan. Yes, we, because I cannot serve overseas without the prayers, love and encouragement of my church family right here at Cornerstone.
