Weekly Update:
Friday, May 14, 2021
Dear Cornerstone Family,

On Mother’s Day we witnessed our highest attendance for in-person services since we reopened last July. It has been a great joy to see so many faces that we have not seen for so long. So many of you have let us know how wonderful it has been to be back in person. We miss those of you who have not been able to join us yet and we hope to welcome you back in the weeks and months ahead. Be encouraged, there is light at the end of the tunnel as we continue to see our community returning to a new normal.
   
I want to remind you that this week we will be having a Congregational Meeting between the two services at 10:10 a.m. in the Worship Center. Sadly, we need to bring our relationship with Pete Geiger and his family to a close. In order for him to move on to his new call, we need to dissolve our congregational relationship with him. This will also enable him to bring his relationship with our Presbytery to an end. I hope you will take the time in the next few weeks to thank Pete for his time of service to us and that you will pray for him and his new call. The Geigers will be moving to Orlando in early June. 

We will also be saying goodbye to Josiah Conely and his family as they move to Charlotte, NC. Josiah got married to Alyssa during COVID, finished his college degree during COVID, and now begins a new job in the midst of COVID. That is a lot of stress in such a short span, so I would like you to be praying for them as they begin a new chapter as a young family. We have been greatly blessed to have had them on our team and we know that the Lord will make them a vital part of His work in the Southeast. 

To celebrate Pete and Josiah's time with us, we will host an outdoor open house at Cornerstone from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 23. I hope you will be able to join us.

It has been a great joy to work with the Geiger and Conely families and it is our prayer that the Lord will prosper their work and ministry in their new cities. May the Lord continue to expand his kingdom both here and abroad. 

For His Kingdom,
Sheldon MacGillivray
Lead Pastor, Cornerstone
This Weekend in Worship
This Sunday, we'll continue our series, "After God's Own Heart," with a message on 1 Samuel 22:1-5, "When Life Keeps You on the Run." We encourage you to read over this passage in preparation for our time together! We look forward to seeing you at Cornerstone at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. online.
Upcoming Events
Give the gift of life!
The Community Blood Center will be holding a blood drive on Thursday, May 20, from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Cornerstone lobby. Safety measures are in place for all donors and volunteers.

As a testimony to the impact of these donations, our own Sarah Armour shared that she is the recipient of 7 life-saving transfusions over the past couple of years. A gift of blood is truly a gift of life!
