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!

Join us for uplifting Worship on Sunday Mornings at 9:00 & 10:45 am.

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

Our Current Sermon Series




Sunday is Pentecost – the Birthday of the Christian Church, and the day when God’s Holy Spirit anointed Jesus’ followers!  The tradition is to wear RED, to symbolize the Holy Spirit flames – so next Sunday when you are picking out your shirt… think red!
