Month: July 2019

Important Dates for Cornerstone Servants

Dear friends,
Some of you have had the opportunity to rest this summer; others of you still have your hand at the plow. I hope you can find some time to rest over the next several weeks because August is a heavy planning month and then Fall Ministries kickoff soon! I am ever so thankful for serving beside faithful servants of our LORD Jesus Christ. Christ builds His church; He is using you. The Church will last forever; what a privilege to be a part of the enterprise that will go on into eternity.

Leaders, please take note of these key dates (if you are not currently serving as a leader, would you please be in prayer for your Cornerstone servant-leaders?):

Leadership Summit – Monday August 12 @7PM – This is for all elders, ministry directors, ministry leaders, small group leaders, Sunday School lead teachers, and deacons. We’ll discuss the elders’ call to ministry that came out of our summer 2019 retreat, work through Pastor Gary’s plan to strengthen and clarify our volunteer recruitment and leadership development process, and spend time in prayer together.

Sunday School Training – Sunday August 18 @11AM – This is for all Sunday School teachers and helpers working in preK through adult classes.

Small Group Leader Training – Monday August 26 @7PM – This is for all small group leaders, co-leaders, and any perspective small group leader apprentices. Lord willing, we’ll have already started marketing our Fall 2019 small groups. Feel free to have small group kickoffs anytime after August 15 for fellowship, introductions, prayer, etc. We’ll use this time on 8/26 to focus on small group dynamics, small group multiplication of groups and leaders, and how to strengthen our groups’ commitment to Word and prayer.

All Worship Team Membersdon’t forget you have a meeting at 11AM on Sunday August 11th.

All of these meetings will be at the church facility.

You’re dear to me,

Pastor Matt
