Weekly Cornerstone Blog
on the New City Catechism

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.

Marriage Conference
"Redeeming the Realities of Marriage, with Paul Tripp"
(via video stream)

One week away - Registration still open!

Part 1: Saturday, Feb. 17th, 6:00-9:00 pm 
Part 2: Saturday, Feb. 24th, 6:00-9:00 pm

Somehow, some way, every marriage will become a struggle at times.
 
If you want to enjoy a beautiful, life-long relationship, you will need more than romance, and something deeper than shared interests and mutual attraction. You will need realistic expectations, radical commitments, and most importantly, you need grace.
 
In this life-changing  two-part video event, Dr. David Paul Tripp (marriage counselor, award-winning author, and international conference speaker) will teach you how to develop a relationship of unity, understanding, and love.
