Rev Sara Sills
Have you ever applied for a job knowing full well that you are not qualified for the task? Many people have approached their careers with this “learn as you go” mindset. Thankfully, God has already given each of us the gifts we need to fulfill our calling as believers. We need not worry that we will be asked to do something that we can’t in our ministries. However, we are sometimes paralyzed by fear of saying yes to God and following our calling. Join us this Sunday as we examine the challenge of courageously answering our call and going up with Christ into our ministry.
On Wednesday, January 24, we will hold our Bible Study at 7:00pm in the Fellowship House. Rev Gary Chambers, Jr will lead our study. This is the beginning of our partnership with Free To Worship Christian Center. Just the beginning of the partnerships we hope to form during 2018!
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.
Help Cornerstone MCC by relieving some of your church's financial pressures. In addition to your usual giving consider paying one of our recurring bills. Some are yearly, some are quarterly and some are monthly. The monthly bills have been averaged over the past year. Currently there are fourteen bills, ten are monthly, one is quarterly, and three are yearly.
Place check or cash for the amount in an envelope, write name of bill on the outside and your name (if you wish to remain anonymous no name is necessary) and put in offering plate. Payment (cash or check) may also be mailed to: Cornerstone MCC, Attn: Adopt-a-Bill, 1007 Government Street, Mobile, Alabama 36604.
You may choose to pay a bill for one month, three months or the whole year...however you feel lead to use the financial gifts God has blessed you with.
If you have questions, need information or want to sign-up, see Sheilah or Carol. A list of bills and amounts are on the bulletin board in the foyer and in the Fellowship House.

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.
