Staff Love Offering: This is the time of year you have the opportunity to honor our church staff with a love offering. We are blessed to have a staff that is so willing to go above and beyond, to ensure we have what we need, when we need it and often do many things quietly in the background to keep everything running smoothly. Please make your gift by Christmas Eve . Please be sure that your gift is designated for "Staff Love Offering."

UMCOR - Early Response Team Training
Early Response Team (ERT) Training: You may have heard about the ERT team from Linda D’Allen, who completed the training and has gone on two trips to help with storm recovery. Called to respond to all people suffering from emergencies and disasters, United Methodists find UMCOR’s extensive training offerings support them in their churches, districts, and conferences. Embedded in all UMCOR training is the underlying message of love and hope that The United Methodist Church offers. Because of who we are, UMCOR’s trainings embrace a ministry of presence - a loving recognition that spiritual bruises and emotional scars matter as much to us as broken doors and windows. Please consider the training class at Cornerstone UMC on Saturday, January 12, 2019 for the UMCOR basic Early Response Team (ERT). The hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm. Please email Bill Pound at:  or contact Linda D’Allen to sign up.
New Sermon Series
"#NewYearNewYou" is our upcoming Sermon Series, beginning next Sunday, December 30th. We will study together how we can connect with the scriptures to have a happy and healthy New Year. 

No fad diets or crazy resolutions required!
