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

Help Cornerstone partner with local churches to feed homeless men in our community through HOME Ministries.  Sign up in the foyer to help provide food Oct. 1-15th.  You can also come help serve.  We are also seeking donations of lunch items like individual bags of chips, juice boxes, choco milk boxes and anything that goes into lunch bags.  Those can be dropped off in the church lobby.

Attention Crafty Cornerstone friends! Sew N Serve resumes their schedule this Wednesday September 25th at 10 AM.  Bring a sack lunch and your ideas for projects for Fall.  People with all levels of craftiness are encouraged to attend.  If you have questions you can speak to Jolaine Elliott or Sandy Hayes.

Cornerstone Family.  Our game has been re-scheduled for October 6th at 2 pm for our annual All Church Softball Game and BBQ.  Come to play, come to watch, come to eat!  Bring a side dish or dessert to share!

Cornerstone is supporting the missions work of our church members:

Partner with Cornerstone members who are fighting hunger through the local Crop Walk Event.

“CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events that bring people together in a common mission: helping hungry people at home and around the world.

Peggy Kessel is excited to be a part of it and would love to have you join her on this journey.  The steps we take-the funds we raise-will make a real impact!”

Here’s the date, time location for the walk itself…

Join us September 8th for the dedication of our remodel!  Come see all the good that God has done.

We are also grateful for your support of this Renovation. And if you are giving to our remodel, or if you are considering giving — this is an important time to support our Church, whether offerings to our normal ministries, or second-mile offerings to this Capital Campaign! We just applied for the Loan necessary to complete this project, and as our building celebrates its 25th Year we are in need of an update. Thank you everyone!   Below is the link for giving at Cornerstone.
