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: 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:

Sunday Morning Changes


Sundays during our 9:00 & 10:30 a.m. service students in 5th – 7th grade will be meeting EVERY WEEK in the main wing room 102 (multi-use) for The Lounge.  The Lounge is a hang out space designed specifically for ax!om567.  Starting Sunday, September 18th, The Lounge will be open every week for middle school students to connect with their friends and their adult small group leaders.  They will enjoy breakfast and time to connect with their small groups.


Every other Sunday starting September 18th only students in 8th – 12th grade will head upstair in our main wing to room 201 to enjoy a more mature atmosphere where a caffeinated continental  breakfast is served.  It will be a place to escape those pesky younger students and exhausting older parents.  Mark your calendars now.  It happens on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month.

Saturday Night Service

Our Saturday night service start at 5:00 p.m. and looks slightly different than our Sunday services.  Here are some details about  our Saturday experience.


12512499_1108593092518294_5205712068716309858_nThere is child care available for birth-5th grade as usual, but we also offer a meal after the evening service. This has become a great family draw as we also have a bounce house set up for the younger kids.

  • Nursery: Birth – 16 months
  • Toddler: 17-15 months
  • Preschool: 3 – 5 years
  • Fly Kids Church: Kindergarten – 5th Grade


After service is over there is a meal available for purchase for $3.00/person. Some common menu items include things like chicken nuggets and mac & cheese, soup & salad, lasagna or taco bar.  Feel free to stick around and enjoy some time meeting new people and catching up with old friends. The kids will be busy eating and playing in the bounce house so it will free you up for some adult conversation. If you have young kids you should check out this service option.


Each of our weekend services are very similar in style and content.  No matter which service you choose, our goal is that your family will experience full life in Jesus.  If you want to know what to expect during one of our weekend service click here: What to Expect or check out our Facebook Fanpage.
