What to Expect at Cornerstone

When you visit Cornerstone Christian Church for the first time, we want to make sure you have the best experience possible.  
We have put together some helpful resources to help you feel as comfortable as possible.  

What A Typical Sunday Service Looks Like

Our Sunday services are designed around helping people worship in an environment that is as distraction free as possible while connecting with others and learning about Jesus.  Below are some guides to help make your first time at either of our physical campuses better.

Arrive at the Church 

(15 minutes before service starts) 

Arriving a few minutes early will ensure you have enough time to park, check your children in, grab a cup of coffee, stop by Next Steps to say "Hi," and find a seat in our worship center.

Check in your children 

(10 minutes before service starts) 

If this is your first time with us, our Cornerstone kids team will gather some information (name, contact info, DOB) from you to ensure your kids have a memorable experience and you feel safe leaving your kids in our care. 

Service Starts

(On time ) 

If you are in the lobby or cafe you will see TVs with a 5-minute count down to help you know when services will start. We know your time is valuable so typically our services start right on time and last about an hour.

Worship  Through Song

We invite you to take a step back from your daily routine and focus on what Jesus has done for us.  Each week we will sing two or three songs as part of our worship service.  Most of these songs are contemporary.
You are invited to sing, listen, watch, or do all three.  

Worship  Through Teaching

Each week you will be presented with biblical teachings that provide the opportunity to learn something new.   Our pastors teach from the Bible every week to help us understand how these teachings apply to our lives. Most sermon series last 4-5 weeks.

Worship  Elements

1. Communion -  Eating a small piece of bread and drinking juice (not wine) in remembrance of Jesus' death for us. (see Luke  22:18-20)
2. Offering - This is an act of worship for anyone that calls Cornerstone home.  As our guest we do not expect you to give.

What We Believe

To summarize: We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that Jesus is the one and only Son of God.  Jesus lived on earth, was crucified, was resurrected, and walked again on the Earth before rising into Heaven.  Eternal life in Heaven is only possible through a personal relationship with Jesus.  We believe that with this personal relationship, we will one day spend eternity with God.
