Dear Cornertone Family.

We live among people disconnected from God and disconnected from others. Spiritual apathy and relational isolation dot our landscape. Cornerstone Church began in 2000 to offer faith to the hopeless and family to the isolated. Dear friends, we continue that ministry vision. AND…our service and ministy are not in vain (1 Cor. 15:58). Jesus’ message to us is that life-changing ministry both personally and beyond ourselves is about the slow, mostly overlooked acts of faith, done over a long period of time. The praying in the closet, the simple presentations of the gospel, the fasting without outward display, and the kind deeds done by the right hand while the left is unaware–these are what God uses to advance His kingdom.

I’m glad we get to do these things together as a covenant community of faith!!

A few items calendar wise:

Chili Supper, 6PM Wednesday: Invite an unchurched friend or family to the Chili Supper, 6PM Wednesday. Pray for Zac Smith who will be sharing his testimony that night. Our small gruops will take a breather this week so we can all make it to Wednesday’s supper.

Associate Pastor Hiring,Final Steps: On March 24th, Gary Hoobler will share in our worship service and take some congregational Q&A during the 9AM Sunday School hour. Then, Gary is helping lead the Leadership Summit at 7PM Monday March 25th. The congregational vote for calling Gary will be after our worship service and potluck on Sunday March 31. Lord willing, Gary starts April 1 (no fooling :).

You are beautifully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). You have been (re)created in Christ Jesus to do good works (Eph. 2). You are a part of a blood-bought people, blood that speaks a word of mercy and hope (Hebrews 12).

Godspeed my brothers and sisters,

Pastor Matt
