We know that many people look at a church, they really need to feel a strong connection with the people.  If someone doesn't feel connected, they might not want to stick around and do life together.  We understand that which is why we would like to take this opportunity to tell you and your family what we're all about.  As you can see in our mission statement, we are about bringing hope to our community...and beyond...through an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ.  What exactly does that mean?  Well, to put it simply, we love Jesus, we love people, and we love our community.

 

The name of our church, Cornerstone, was not an accident.  Jesus is the Cornerstone of the church and we are using His example to be a model for the community.  Many churches reach the community in their own way, but Cornerstone is quite unique in the different ways we do church.  For example, we have been blessed with a wonderful resource that is available to the many groups within our church as a tool that can be used to further their ministry efforts.  During the historical flood of 2011, Cornerstone served over 35,000 meals using the food trailer.  We were blessed to be a blessing to our community in its biggest time of need.

 

Another area where Cornerstone engages with our community is through our Wednesday evening Community Supper.  The mission statement for community supper is that we aim to serve the community by providing food, fun, and friendship to all who come each Wednesday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

One way the Cornerstone family gets involved in community supper is giving their time as volunteers!  We can always use volunteers to help prepare, serve, or clean up. Some come as few as one to two hours; others are there for four hours.  We are blessed by our youth who take charge of community supper on the last Wednesday of each month, giving them experience in Christian service.

 

Much like the how the church served thousands of meals during the 2011 flood, the Cornerstone family stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The picture to the left is some of our church members, including many children, making cards and encouraging letters to community members that were in quarantine.  This gesture provided much needed hope to our community, especially to our community's most vulnerable population.  Our service to the community doesn't stop with handmade cards and letters, though!  We volunteer in the community to help our neighbors with projects, chores, lawn care, and many other necessities.  Our goal is to continuously provide hope to our community and beyond by being the salt and light for others.

 

It's difficult to highlight all Cornerstone does on a single page of a website, but the last annual event we'd like to talk about it our church campout.  Each year, the church family takes a little time to connect together over food, fellowship, games, nature, and God's Word at Fort Stevenson State Park in Garrison, North Dakota.  This annual event is a wonderful way to not only recharge the batteries while enjoying God's wonderful creation, but it also provides us the opportunity to talk with fellow campers about Jesus love.  The culmination of the campout is an awesome worship service underneath a huge tent.  The music and message can be heard throughout the campground which brings in curious campers to hear the message of eternal saving grace through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

As you can see, Cornerstone is an active and thriving church whose God-given mission is to reach the community and beyond through and ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Would you like to join our family?  We'd love to have you!  Stop by on a Sunday or Wednesday and check us out for yourself.  We would love to get you plugged into a ministry where your spiritual gifts and talents will help bring much needed hope to our community and beyond.
