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,
