Unfortunately the audio recording did not take for Pastor Matt’s message this week.
Pastor Matt is able to make this early manuscript of the sermon available –
I’m as excited about this year’s fall launch as I have been in a long, long time. We’ve taken some important steps over the past 2 years to strengthen our leadership, focus our mission, and what an amazing gift it has been to see the building transformation and the hiring of Pastor Gary.
What’s before us? “For the joy, despite the cost, for the family.” Together, let us seek the joy of our Heaveny Father, in sacrificing for King and Kingdom, to see the family of God grow locally and globally. The Church is God’s plan for history. God’s Kingdom will last forever. Let’s make our greatest investments in the Kingdom that will never end; let us do this together!
This Sunday we launch. Please join us for the kickoff celebration and meal at 11AM. We’ll gather in the Sanctuary at 11AM to hear about what’s happening this fall, and then the Church is providing a free meal for everyone! Invite your friends, family, relatives, coworkers, random strangers on the street, neighbors, check out clerks, and anyone you can find. God is up to something at Cornerstone–to God be the Glory!

I love serving as a pastor of this Church!
