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 10:00 am.

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

Our Building Renovation is in full swing and we are excited for the transformation!!! We Remind You: Our Classes, Youth Groups, Preschool and Sunday Worship will continue uninterrupted at their Regular Times.   We thank you for being patient with this project, which should be completed mid-summer.

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.
