Weekly Cornerstone Blog

In an effort to make our year through the New City Catechism as fruitful and helpful as possible, some of our pastors and elders are writing a weekly blog to provide additional insights and explanation on the question for that week. 

It includes the question and answer, the kids' answer, the accompanying memory verse, additional verses to consider on that question, some commentary on life application, and a connection to our church's statement of faith.

"Transformed Into His Likeness"
Overcoming Sinful Thoughts, Habits, and Tendencies

Saturday, June 30th
9:00 am to noon
Cornerstone Fellowship Hall

Scripture exhorts us to grow in Christ-likeness. Unfortunately, many of us experience frustration in our spiritual walk because we do not understand how God intends for us to change sinful habits, thoughts, and tendencies that stifle spiritual progress. Consequently, our lives are unstable, our spiritual growth sporadic, and our attempts to help others are ineffective. 

This free 3-hour seminar will provide a clear explanation of how God has designed personal transformation to take place in our lives. You will learn the key to human behavior and personal change. Additionally, you will learn how to utilize a helpful resource for your spiritual growth, and for leading others along the path of spiritual growth. 

Our instructor will be Armand Tiffe, Pastor Emeritus. Please bring your Bible and a pen; outlines will be provided.

Worth pondering

"The church is not a theological classroom. 
It is a conversion, confession, repentance, reconciliation, forgiveness and sanctification center, where flawed people place their faith in Christ, gather to know and love him better, 
and learn to love others as he designed.
