Pastor Post: 1/29/2015

updateFriends,

Thank you for the rich feedback I received from our series on prayer. I heard that some of you created an intentional and intimate place for prayer. Others are talking about praying more regularly with their spouse. Others have ventured into praying aloud. Still others have started praying about their city, finances, and the world. All of these steps of faith are very encouraging. Keep on the lookout for prayer guides during Lent. So too, we may have a few prayer groups available leading up to Easter. May Cornerstone forever be known as a house of prayer.

Announcements:

Twogether Marriage Mentoring: This Sunday the director of Twogether Marriage Mentoring, Lynn Nelson, will be present during our worship service. She will also be available at an informational table to answer any questions about our mentoring ministry. Maybe the LORD would have you and your spouse receive marital mentoring in 2015. Maybe you and your spouse would go through the training to become a mentor couple. Stop by and tell Lynn, “Hello,” and thank her for her service to our church and the community. If you haven’t been reading lately on the state of marriage in our country, you might appreciate this YouTube video: 

Youth Ministry in February: On Saturday 7, 14, 21, and 28 (from 6:30-8:30PM) all 7-12th grade students are encouraged to join Pastor Matt and Carrie as we seek God’s truth for relationships, intimacy, and gender differences. Come to know Christ and make Him known; come also to play games and eat snacks. Bring a friend; they’ll be blessed.

Children’s Church workers: We’re in the hunt for a few individuals willing to serve once every 5 weeks in our Children’s Church ministry. These folks love on 4-year-olds through kindergarten for about 2/3 of our Sunday morning worship service. If interested, reach out to Deb Hammes, ddhammes@hotmail.com.

The Intelligent Faith Conference: Friday, February 6th (6:30PM to 9:30PM) & Saturday, February 7th (8:30AM to 12:30PM) at New Covenant Bible Church. All details atwww.servethecity.org on the events page.

It’s my privilege to serve this family.
