Our Week Together In Christ....

At Cornerstone MCC, we offer a variety of programs and activities for Christian worship, fellowship, service, and education. There is also a place in ministry for you at Cornerstone, through one of our existing team ministries, or in the development of new ones as we grow together in faith and faithfulness. There's a place for everyone to share in God's Word. You Belong At Cornerstone!

Holy Ground

Rev Ruth Jensen-Forbell

Genesis 28: 1-19a; Psalm 86: 11-17; Matthew 13: 24-30, 36-43.

God is on the ground. And so are we, the church. Like Jacob, we've been gifted with holy ground - sacred community and the shared narrative of our faith - so that we might be a blessing to those who are hurting, lost, or alone. All this holiness can be neither created nor destroyed!

Cornerstone Ministry Teams Begin

Ministry Team Leaders met with the Board of Directors after morning worship last Sunday to receive information about organizing and communicating with their teams. By working together we can become a church more effective in meeting the needs of those around us as well as being the worship center for all people regardless of age, race, gender, or sexual orientation. If you have not signed up for one of the teams and would be interested in helping, please click here to see a list of teams with a description of their responsibilities.

Join our Choir

The choir now meets at 9:30am each Sunday morning to rehearse and sing with colleagues. If this appeals to you, please come and join in. Pastor Ruth is a music enthusiast and takes the lead in rehearsal on the two Sundays each month when she is here. On the other Sundays, Carol Wright and Wyll Lewis will lead rehearsal. If you would like more information or have other musical talents you can share, please talk with Pastor Ruth or Carol Wright.

Rummage / Yard Sale Fundraiser

We have been encouraged to begin collecting and bringing items in specially provided containers any Sunday for this fundraiser on August 18 & 19 (Friday & Saturday). Each Sunday we will have volunteers in the sanctuary foyer receive these containers and store items, so that we have an ample supply of empty containers. We hope all of you will clean out closets, garages, and other storage areas and put unwanted items in these containers. We can also arrange to have very large items and furniture picked up by letting us know. See Wyll Lewis or one of the Board members on Sunday or call the church office (251-438-7080) during the week and leave a message. Also, if you will be able to offer your expertise in yard sales, please let us know in the same way! Many Thanks!

“Helping Hands” Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon

If you are one of those folks who are fortunate enough to be off on Tuesday morning (9:00am-12:00pm) and/or Thursday afternoon (1:00pm-4:00pm), we could use your help. A small group of us enjoy the fellowship of working together, doing a variety of clerical jobs, cleaning out areas of the church, and attending to congregational care needs.

Conflict Resolution Policy

After two Wonderful Wednesday sessions, a Conflict Resolution Policy was presented at the Board of Directors meeting on April 30. A motion was passed to rename it "Cornerstone Guidelines for Conflict Resolution" and to recommend all members and friends print out a copy and review it. It will also be included in New Member packets. It is our hope that this document will remind us that conflicts will occur, and there are positive ways to deal with them as Christian brothers and sisters.
