What time is your worship service?
Our worship service starts at 11:30am every Sunday and lasts until about 12:45pm, or occasionally a little longer if we have a baptism, communion, or other special celebration.
Do you have Sunday School?
We have two Sunday School classes before the worship service. Adults and seniors meet at 10:00am in the “purple door” room, and 6th-12th graders meet at 10:30am in their “yellow door” youth room. For younger children, we have a Sunday School class that is offered during the worship service.
Do you have a Nursery?
Nursery care for children ages 0-4 is offered during the worship service, in the “orange door” room. If your children are hesitant about leaving you, they are always welcome to stay with you during the service—we’re accustomed to a natural amount of kid-noise!
What happens during church worship?
As you enter the church, a greeter will give you a bulletin that outlines our worship service and lists our weekly church happenings and announcements. Please feel free to sit wherever you feel most comfortable. During the worship service, you will hear music, readings from scripture, prayer, and preaching. At times, you may be invited to stand, sing, pray, greet your neighbor, be in silence, or read in unison. Younger children will be invited forward for a short, fun lesson with the Pastor or speaker, and then they may attend Sunday School.
Once a month, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper and take communion through intinction (this means taking the bread and dipping it into the wine cup—we offer juice instead of wine). Our communion table is open to everyone.
At all of our services we maintain the Christian tradition of receiving an offering to support the church’s ministries. We welcome your gifts and encourage everyone to live a life marked by generosity. Every gift, of any size, is valued.
What should I wear?
God does not have a dress code and neither do we! Some people come dressed in their Sunday best. Others wear jeans or shorts. Generally, we are a casually dressed congregation. We believe that God cares more about the state of our hearts than the state of our attire, and encourage you to dress the way that feels most appropriate to you.
What happens after church?
We take our food and our friendships seriously, and the lunch hour is where we share both of these gifts. Lunch hour happens after the 11:30am service, in the Fellowship Hall that is adjacent to the Sanctuary. Lunch is free for first-time guests and visitors.
Lunch hour is prepared by all those currently attending worship at Cornerstone, and organized by different groups within the congregation. Joining a group can be a great way to get involved and to meet people as well. Let our Church Administrator or Pastor know if you’d like to know more about joining one of our groups.
Is the church handicap accessible?
Yes. There are several accessible parking spots close to our entrance on Valencia Avenue. We also have accessible restrooms. Please let the church office know if there is any way we can better accommodate your needs.
Where should I park?
The front lot adjacent to Valencia Avenue leads to the front entrance of the Sanctuary. The side lot leads to the Education Building and back entrance of the Sanctuary.
