These are my People

Who are your people?  You know, the ones that you can laugh and cry with, the people that know the details of your life.
Everyone knows that it’s important to be connected to a community of friends.  As life becomes more saturated with technology, people are becoming more and more isolated.  We spend less time engaging in real conversations with real people and more time leaving messages and replying to emails.

What if taking one simple step could change that?

At Cornerstone, we are trying to make it easier for you to find real people who share your common interests.  It’s a fact that having friends with similar Christian values will increase your aptitude for spiritual growth.  Your friends are predictors of your values, health, and overall wellness.

Basically, it’s like this: Friends are good. Isolation is bad. Take a step today and join a life group! You may just find yourself a great new group of friends that you can laugh with and learn from as you deepen your faith walk.

August: Volunteer of the Month

Vision2020_spread_the_spiritWe would like to recognize Neil Ariano and his family as our August volunteers of the month. Neil and his wife Laura have just recently started attending Cornerstone Church with their two daughters, Regina and Bobbie. They wasted no time jumping in to help serve. The Ariano family has helped to bring further awareness to the Cornerstone Food Shelf which serves as a helping hand to those in need in our community. Neil has also been a welcomed addition to the worship team, playing the bass for our weekend services. We are so blessed by the Ariano family!


If you are interested in becoming part of a bigger story, consider volunteering at Cornerstone Church.  It’s a great way to take the next step in your relationship with Jesus. Email: office@cornestoneaustin.org for more information on one of our serving teams.

New Ministry Launch: ax!om567

In the third week of September, a lot is changing in our Next Generation Ministries at Cornerstone Church.  What is Next Generation Ministries?  It is all of our environments for kids birth thru 12th grade.  At Cornerstone we refer to our early childhood, elementary, middle school & high school ministries as NEXTGEN.  We are excited to announce that we are starting a middle school environment  specifically designed for students in 5th, 6th & 7th grade called ax!om567.

There currently are 3 major ministries that make up NEXTGEN at Cornerstone.  Fly Kids Jrs. (birth-5 years) Fly Kids (K-5th grade) AX!OM (6th-12th grade) and now we will be adding ONE MORE, ax!om567 (5th-7th grade).  We will be combining 5th-grade students from Fly Kids with the 6th & 7th-grade students from AX!OM and creating our new ministry: ax!om567.  So this is what NEXTGEN will look like come mid-September of  2016:
