Ministry overview

Everyone has skills and natural abilities.

When we use these God-given gifts with others, something amazing happens...

We bring joy to others, and we ourselves experience joy, too!

But as we give to others, we also need to be feeding ourselves with the truth of the Gospel.

At Cornerstone, we think that everyone should be doing 2 things:  Serving and Learning.  

It's like keeping your body healthy - you need to exercise AND eat.

We have many opportunities to do both of these - check out the overview below, with links to dig deeper...

adult growth

We are a community where Jesus Christ is experienced in his presence and power, where lives are transformed by the gospel through God’s word and mutual ministry.


The gospel, as revealed in God’s Word, is the center of who we are and all that we do. It is the truth that through faith in Jesus Christ alone, all of our guilt, shame and unrighteousness is removed and replaced with all of Jesus’ beauty and righteousness. 

Growth in the Christian life occurs the same way that it began through an ever deepening belief in the gospel. .

God has made each of us with gifts and skills and abilities and passions.

And we are all different!

But working together, we become a tapestry that is woven together that supports and upholds the healing and growth of everyone. And we all grow more when we get to use our gifts, skills, and passions.

There are so many different ways to serve God within Cornerstone. 

  • Facility Ministry Team - Landscaping, Interior Design, Maintenance & Renovations...
  • Worship
  • Greeters & Ushers
  • Communications and Information
  • Event Planning - Celebrations!
  • Teaching
  • Administration



The church does not exist for itself, but for the benefit of those outside itself.


Cornerstone strives to perform redeeming activities in our local community and around the world...

           ... as God's ambassadors of reconciliation in a broken and hurting world...

                                                                                                   ...where Jesus is already making all things new.

Whether we are supporting missionaries around the world, orphans in Guatemala, or those struggling in our own community, we recognize that people change through relationships, and therefore our ministries must be based on relationships, NOT just giving and transactions.

Based on the biblical principles described so well in the book When Helping Hurts, 

Cornerstone seeks to empower people through their own God-given gifts and skills.
