Cornerstone Activities and Classes
Due to COVID-19, most activities are suspended or modified.
Besides the morning and evening worship services on Sunday, we have a number of educational and fellowship programs available for all ages. Below is a brief listing of such programs. Most of the classes meet from September through May. They typically begin and end with prayer and some include the singing of psalms and hymns.
This is not a complete list of classes and fellowship groups, but serves to give an idea of the kinds of programs available. Non-members are welcome and encouraged to participate in them. Times and days of the classes may vary.
We have 2 Sunday worship services, at 10 am and 5 pm (the afternoon service is NOT a repeat of the morning). Currently only online is available.
Children ages 4 to 7 are taught Bible stories and Christian songs in classes which meet after our Sunday morning worship service.
Mid-week Bible studies for adults
There are two Bible study classes. The Thursday night class meets every other week and is lead by the Pastor, and the other meets every Wednesday night. In each case, typically a book of the Bible is studied in depth in a setting where questions and interaction is a part of learning together.
Children and young peoples' Bible knowledge classes
Using workbooks and study guides, the basic content of the Bible is taught in a series of classes. Meeting one night each week, students are 7 to 14 years old.
