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!

Rev Ruth Jensen-Forbell
Our focus for Sunday is celebration.
We see in Samuel celebration in song and dance as the Ark of the Covenant is brought into Jerusalem. In Paul's letter to the Ephesians the celebration centers around adoption into God's family.
We are part of God's family! What does that mean to you?
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Pastor Tonya Johnson will be leading our Bible Study starting at 7:00pm every Wednesday. The study will focus on the scriptures that will be used on the following Sunday.
The Pastoral Search Team has named Rev Sara Sills as their candidate for our next pastor.
There will be a special Congregational meeting on Sunday, July 15 immediately following the worship service to vote on the candidate. Only members in good standing may vote.
Three women attended the Women's Group dinner meeting in May. We are not meeting in June. The next meeting will be Saturday, July 28. We plan on a Tabitha's Task for Heidi. She needs help cleaning out and setting up her room in the Fellowship House for her Outreach project.
If you identify as a woman please join us at 1:00pm in the Fellowship House on Saturday, July 28.
Share Your Gifts
Attempting to help our Church and people to share God's gifts, we are compiling a list of people and what gifts God has gifted him or her with. These may include, but are not limited to, painting, carpentry, cooking, administrative, cleaning etc. What gifts has God gifted you with?
Please share your gifts. The sign-up sheet is on the Welcome Table. This way we know who to approach when a need arises.
Remember stewardship is about more than money. Your gifts are from God.
On Saturdays, Pastor Ruth will have office hours from 9:00am to 4:00pm by appointment only. To make an appointment, please use her contact form on our web site for a specific appointment time. She will be available on:
- July 14
Fellowship House Restoration
Help fund the restoration of our Fellowship House! Thanks to some wonderful people, CMCC has a Go Fund Me account (www.gofundme.com/restorefellowshiphouse). After the first of the year we will be applying for grants. Many grant agencies require evidence that the applicant is trying to raise funds. Some require matching funds. Check out the site, donate, and share information on your Facebook and/or your Twitter account(s) so your friends can donate too. This link has already been posted to CMCC's Facebook and Twitter accounts for you to share.
A Drama Ministry creates joyful and new opportunities to express spirt and allows for a deeper emotional vesting in the church. It offers opportunities for all ages and creates lasting friendship while enhancing the word of God. Storytelling is the most powerful forms of communication God has given to us and drama is a highly potent way to tell a story. With the Drama Ministry Team, we will bring Scripture to life. Please contact Chris Willingham by email or 251.284.8272 for more information.

Conflict Resolution Policy
After two Wonderful Wednesday sessions, a Conflict Resolution Policy was presented at the Board of Directors meeting. 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.
