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 am and 10:45 am.

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